The Gap Year Travel Guide’s founder, Danny Kataria to judge BUNAC’s prized internship competition

With the votes counted and the candidates selected, the winner of BUNAC's travel internship competition is now left in the hands of the company's cherry-picked judging panel, including The Gap Year Travel Guide's very own founder, Danny Kataria. 

Danny likes long walks on the beach, sunsets and fluffy puppies

One lucky hopeful will be awarded the prize of a lifetime, but not before they are grilled face-to-face by Danny and six other esteemed adjudicators.

The competition winner will be whisked away for a 2-month journey through North America, from Canada to Costa Rica.

Highlights include: teaching children at a summer camp, a weeklong 'Western Wonder' tour paid for by Trek America, working Canadian mountain resort and the chance to volunteer at a turtle sanctuary in Costa Rica.

All flights, accommodation, medical insurance and a state-of-the-art video camera to record your adventure will be free courtesy of the Howard Crew Scholarship Fund. What's more, you will be offered a marketing internship after, in Bunac's London headquarters so you can piece together your journey in written form.

There will be 9 contestants vying for the opportunity. Let's meet them:



















As the nomadic nine do their final preparations, we wish them all the best of luck from all of us at The Gap Year Travel Guide.
