Bakpak Travellor's Guide


Want to go to Europe this summer as a travel writer and researcher? Bakpak Travelers Guide has launched its 4th Annual Travel Writing Essay Contest to find a writer/researcher for the 2006 Europe Hostels & Travel Guide, the #1 listed travel guide for Europe hostels on Amazon.com! Bakpak Travelers Guide publishes free and low-cost, compact budget guides for students and independent travelers.

The winning entrant will receive a 1 month temporary travel assignment to research and write for the guide. The assignment includes a $500 cash stipend, round-trip airfare to London from select gateway cities, a 15-day First Class Eurail Flexipass, 30 nights hostel accommodation and a $250 spending allowance.

Contest Sponsors include RailEurope (www.raileurope.com), North America’s leading Rail Pass provider and GOMIO (www.gomio.com), the backpacking portal created and run by Europe's independent hostels that offers commission free beds in more than 750 hostels all over Europe.

Our contest offers the winning entrant an excellent opportunity to gain or improve upon writing experience, to visit an amazing continent, to meet new people and to have an experience of a lifetime.
