A flexible and relaxed person that will follow me around the world, split transportation costs, accommodation costs and most importantly, take photos of me in front of a myriad of landmarks around the world.
Able to use a camera, point, focus and click. While one would think this is pretty easy, I have met dozens of people that cannot take a good picture. Why is this? I have no idea. When you ask someone to take a picture of them in front of the Colosseum, they probably want you to get them AND the Colosseum in the photo. Just sayin….
Why would you want money when you get to see cool things around the world and hang out with me? I’m pretty awesome. Just ask my mom… and my grandma. They think I’m perfect!
How to Apply:
Email 4 photos you have taken, personally, of another person. Top candidates will have international travel experience, no official job that restricts their schedules, a thirst for adventure and a willingness to take care of an accident prone world traveler when she needs it … (I’ll return the favor!)
But in all seriousness…
I have taken hundreds of selfies since I started traveling on my own and I just suck at them. I get complaints from friends and family because I post HUNDREDS of photos from my travels and about 3 photos of myself. All are selfies that show me wearing the same clothes (occupational hazard of living out of a backpack), same sun glasses, same squint in my eyes and usually the same hair style (HEY! A braid is SOOO easy and hides the fact I haven’t washed my hair in a few days!)
How do I fix this? Someone… please help me. I just want to get some nice photos of myself for you (my readers) but also my friends and family so that they can be a part of my world, even if they aren’t here with me. Pictures are my one way that I can share my experience with my loved ones. I wish, more than anything else, that they could travel with me. (Well, most of them… Some, I would NEVER travel with. Still love them but you know what I mean. There are those certain people that traveling with them would be akin to torture). But right now, that’s not a possibility so this is the next best thing.
Which brings me to my problem. How do I get those epic photos of me in front of Angkor Wat, The Pantheon, Eiffel Tower, Grand Canyon, Mt Edna, The Dead Sea, Kilimanjaro, tango dancing in Buenos Aires…. without owning a trained photographer monkey. (That would be pretty cool though, I’d name him either Chewbacca or Stewie). So, without owning a Chewbacca or a Stewie… What can I do?
