Travel junkies, food lovers and fellow travel bloggers, listen up. We’ve found another dream job – or shall we say “dream temporary gig” that will allow to eat your way across Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, China and Japan and get paid $10,000 for the pleasure.
Pei Wei Asian Diner (a sister restaurant company to P.F. Chang’s) recently launched a search for an international correspondent to travel across Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, China and Japan with their Executive Chef and blog about the experience. Added bonus – a $10,000 salary for the two to three week culinary tour.
We know, we know, you’re already saying “sign me up,” but work will be involved. You’ll be asked to blog, take photos, and post videos about the journey and to eat everything from street foot to five-star cuisine. You’ll trek to remote villages, explore world-renowned cities, and meet everyone from rural farmers to famous chefs.
To be the winner, Pei Wei says you need to have “a talent for writing, a boundless appetite, a willingness to experiment with the unknown, an eye for the unforgettable image and the ability to capture it, comfort both on-camera and behind the lens, a spontaneous spirit but a grounded work ethic, and a passion for Asian cuisine.”
Sound right up your alley? (We know it does.) To enter, register on the Pei Wei site, and upload a photo, bio, and sample blog post. You may also submit up to four additional posts, five more photos, and one YouTube link. Entries will be accepted between now and December 20, 2010, and the winner will be announced during the week of January 17.
The trip will take place in late February 2011.
