WOW Air has a proposition for you: Move to Reykjavik from June 1 to August 15 and fly to any of their destination cities on their dime. That includes places like Barcelona, Tel Aviv, Copenhagen, and New York. You'll use every social media tool in your power to build the budget airline's WOW Travel Guide. Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, blogs, and all the ones you haven't heard of — they'll pay you and a companion of your choice about $4,000 per month to show off the best adventures WOW can provide.
Of course, it is a marketing ploy, and yes, that does mean it's as much job as adventure. But it's still a pretty compelling idea. The application period has already opened, and the deadline is May 14. All you have to do is create a two-minute video with travel tips for your hometown. Best of all, the contest is open to anyone worldwide, so don't worry if you're not all brushed up on your Icelandic.
WOW made headlines last year with its $99 one-way fares from American cities to Reykjavik, a hub for loads of European budget airlines. So even if you don't get picked on May 18, you still might have some new options for your summer vacation.
