In an effort to raise awareness about less-traveled places within the European Union, the EU is offering opportunity for up to five people to spend a month in Bosnia and Herzegovina at no cost. The hope is that these folks will spread the word about how gorgeous it is in the Balkans.
The five people chosen must be digital nomads, people who work remotely from anywhere and don’t need to go “into the office” to work. Other qualifications are that the chosen few must have accounts on three or more social media and be free to travel during the applicable dates.
The EU provides everything: travel, food, accommodation, and covering the cost of the mandatory tours through the region, of which there are two. Aside from the chosen folks’ work duties and the tours, however, these people will be able to enjoy the countryside and culture to their hearts’ content.
Ziplining, kayaking, mountaineering, and whitewater rafting are all within easy traveling distance of the place where the chosen digital nomads will be staying. The area is prime for bicycling, as well, and the views of the Balkan countryside are suitably breathtaking.
The only other thing is that the nomads will have to publish at least three updates on each of their social media accounts. These updates should focus on their personal experiences. One of the posts must be a blog entry that includes at least 12 high-quality photos of the surrounding area.
It is possible that influencers might want to interview these five digital nomads about the whole experience, so it’s a fantastic way for the nomads to network and increase their online footprint.
