The Seychelles still has a few roads that haven’t yet been fully mapped by the major GPS companies. The lush, tropical archipelago in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa is a choice destination for honeymoon couples, beach goers and scuba divers. But how are they going to be able to accurately navigate around the islands if its maps are incomplete? Some one has to help map that tropical paradise.
It turns out: That some one could be you.
In what must be among the coolest travel jobs currently being advertized, TomTom is looking for a family to help them map the Seychelles.
TomTom, as you may know, is a manufacturer of portable GPS devices. For international travel, we are fans of their XXL 540TM model—it’s powerful enough to use as your primary car GPS at home while its portability and world mapping capabilities make it ideal for navigating on far flung trips.
As for the job mapping the Seychelles, it involves driving around the island paradise in a specially equipped vehicle. The selected family will have their entire trip paid for plus receive €10,000. That’s pretty good for only one day of work. Though, fortunately, TomTom recognizes the difficulty most travelers to the Seychelles have tearing themselves away from the tropical beaches there, and so you’ll have a full two weeks to complete your “work.”
No previous mapping experience is necessary, although TomTom is looking of people who “enjoy visiting rainforests, banana and coconut plantations, who don’t mind great weather and who have a decent sense of direction.”
Hey, it’s a tough job. But some one has to do it.
