Cape Town - Have you ever wanted to spend three months soaking up the weak European sun in niche cafes but never had a spare R80 000 to do so?

Or, perhaps you wanted to get your social media feed looking so #cultured and #aesthetic and be the envy of all of your followers, but never had the time? No need to fret, my pet, Busabout wants you!

Busabout, that specialises in flexible travel, is looking for a team of four talented travel addicts to Snap, vlog, blog or Insta their way across Europe this summer for an all-expenses paid adventure worth over R80 000! 

This opportunity is for pros and novices alike. If you're great at capturing the perfect angle to make a picture pop, or a master at inducing FOMO in a 10 second clip, there's a spot on the squad for you.
