The international search for Busabout’s Global Brand Ambassador is over as the free-spirited travel experts select Sydney-sider, Leanne Gaculais, as the company’s latest (and perhaps greatest) recruit. This role will see Leanne travel across Europe tracking down the tastiest tapas in Spain, catching the dreamiest sunsets over the Med and discovering Berlin’s best nightlife…all in the name of work.
Leanne will be joined by Texan Jake Baine, the successful applicant for the role of Video Producer, who has generated video content for music acts including The Chainsmokers. Together the pair will embark on the trip of a lifetime creating stories and making memories to share across Busabout’s social channels.
Busabout caught up with Leanne before she jets off to London this Saturday: “This will truly be a life changing experience and I cannot wait for what the coming months have in store. There are so many amazing destinations to look forward to and I can’t wait to go back to some of my favourite cities like Budapest and Prague and explore new places like Croatia, Portugal and Turkey. One of the things I’m most excited about are the stories we’ll be creating along the way. Who knows the people I’ll meet and the adventures Jake and I will get up to. The unknown is part of the beauty of travelling. Thanks Busabout for landing me my dream job!”
Tina McIntosh, General Manager Busabout, commented: “From thousands of applicants worldwide, we are so happy that Australian, Leanne Gaculais, has been selected as the Global Brand Ambassador. Leanne’s application was full of personality and creativity and she truly epitomises everything we were looking for and more – she’s fun, passionate about travel and a natural storyteller! Together with Jake, this dream team will capture the Busabout experience and produce original, wanderlust worthy content of their epic adventures.”
Starting in London and travelling through the Balkans, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Germany, Spain, Austria and much more besides, Leanne and Jake will spend five months experiencing the very best of Europe and creating amazing travel themed vlogs, writing blog posts and documenting their travels on social media.
