The Best Job in the World?

Posted In: Beach, Blog, Camping Abroad, Destinations

An Australian state is offering what it humbly dubs, “the best job in the world.” The person or persons hired for this job of “island caretaker” will be paid handsomely to lounge around a lush island along the Great Barrier Reef. Job duties include sunbathing, swimming, and occasionally fishing leaves out of the pool. It sounds right down my alley!

Actually, what piqued my interest about the job is the fact they’re seeking a video blogger. I suspect the genuine duties of the role will involve appearing at public events, speaking to the media, and exploring all facets of the island lifestyle with a video camera in tow. To prove the point, prospective candidates must apply by creating a 60-second video in which they state their case. It sounded like a fun creative challenge, so we decided to pull together an entry.

We had fun making this one. I’m pleased with the result. So from now on we’ll include this 60-second video in the “About” section of our website. It serves as a upbeat introduction to The Long Long Honeymoon.

Suppose we were to actually land “the greatest job in the world?” Odds are long; since announcing the opportunity, the island tourism board has received several thousand applications.

But if we were chosen for the position, I think it would be a nice fit with The Long Long Honeymoon. One of our missions this year is to demonstrate that RVing and camping skills can serve you abroad as well as right here in the good ole USA. If you learn the RV lifestyle in America, you can take it overseas. It will help you see the world.

And I think that our blog’s “honeymoon” theme would serve our Aussie friends well. It’s no secret that honeymoons are typically among the most extravagant vacations that people ever take. I’m sure there are plenty of Americans out there who wouldn’t mind honeymooning along the islands of the Great Barrier Reef.

So if any of you folks reading this blog happen to be employees of Tourism Queensland… pick us! 😉
