Today, I’m giving away a MASSIVE PRIZE!
Bologna, Italy – Be There with Emirates
Well, I’m teaming up with Emirates so I can send two lucky punters from Australia to their latest Italian gateway – Bologna!
Anyway, this giveaway is to celebrate the Emirates Be There campaign! This is a global campaign that celebrates curiosity, wanderlust, and the adventure that comes with travel. Emirates sourced their own staff/travel addicts (known as “globalistas”) to travel the world and document their experiences of #BeingThere.
Selected through a talent show style competition held for Emirates staff, these seven globalistas will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to travel and discover hidden gems in cities across the airline’s global network on six continents. From music to food, fashion and adventure, each globalista will film their own journeys while exploring their personal passions – making the story and experience their own. As ambassadors, these “Be There” globalistas will travel around the world over a six-month period, and bring their passion to life by capturing their unique ‘Be There’ experiences through their own storytelling lens.
To celebrate the Be There campaign, Emirates is giving away two economy class, return tickets worth over $AUD 5,000!
With 30kg of checked luggage, award winning inflight entertainment and gourmet catering – what’s not to like? Keep reading if you feel like stuffing yourself silly full of pasta and gelato!
Note, this competition is for Australian residents only. Sorry if you’re reading from another country, I’ll see what I can stitch up for you at another time! I feel like entering the giveaway myself, but I know that would come across a tad shonky!
The flights are to be taken from either Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane or Perth international airports to Bologna, Italy. If you don’t live in any of these cities, you’ll have to make your own way there. I’ve also been lucky enough to fly on the Emirates A380 and Boeing 777 too, so I know you’ll enjoy the trip over!
Anyway, Shahab was one of the globalistas selected for the Be There campaign, and he was lucky enough to experience Bologna himself.
Check it out here!
Looks like he’s been eating a lot of great food there. I just hope he doesn’t have to check himself in as excess baggage on the flight home!
Visit the Be There website to watch more videos from Emirates’ inspiring globalistas and and be taken on a journey to over 30 destinations across the world – because what’s better than #BeingThere?
The ‘Be There’ began with a call to the 80,000-strong Emirates Group team around the world, to submit a video showcasing who they are, what they are most passionate about, and how travel helps them to fulfill their dreams. The entries submitted featured an eclectic range of interests such as photography, fashion, music, extreme sports, food, art and much more.
From the submissions, 20 finalists were chosen to present themselves during a live audition in front of a packed auditorium and panel of renowned judges including celebrity chef and TV personality Silvena Rowe. The finalists were given just two minutes to show why they deserve the opportunity. The winners chosen come from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, and a variety of different roles within the Emirates organisation.
The globalistas began their journeys in May 2015 and will continue through November, and together will cover close to 40 destinations. To see where they are headed next, learn more about their stories, or find out more about the project, visit www.emirates.com/bethere.
