As the groups are traveling, Busabout will have its 49,000 followers vote in live polls about what each pair does next on their trip.
"From tough decisions like skydiving or white water rafting in Lauterbrunnen, and whether or not to swallow a deep fried insect in Bangkok, Instagram users will have the power to decide what happens next," the company explained in a press release. "The interactive polls on Instagram Stories will allow Busabout's audience to have a say in each and every moment of the winners' global adventures."
If you're willing to abandon your free will for a chance at seeing a bunch of far-flung locales on someone else's dime, throwing your hat in the ring pretty simple. You just need to fill out the online application, declare your area of expertise (video or Instagram) and select which trip preference by April 9. You'll also need to submit a creative 60-second YouTube video that showcases the "best bits" of your own hometown. If you and a pal are respectively good at Instagram and video, you're welcome to apply as a pair as well. Then, Busabout will go through and put together a shortlist of the finalists, and put those to a public vote on its website to determine the winners.
Of course, if you'd prefer to see and do things of your own choosing during your summer travels, we totally understand. Though since you'd be paying out of your own pocket, you may want to consider some of these budget-friendly options.
