The Vagabond 3: Rob Blasko, Jade Broadus and Bob Christian

Back in August 2009, Rob, a self-described “sarcastic, fun loving braggart” entered and won a Twitter contest for a three-day trip to Sydney, Australia.

But there was a catch, he’d have to send one tweet per minute while on the trip.

That’s a total of 4,320 tweets.

He brought two friends with him to help accomplish the challenge: Jade “a sassy, spunky cutie” and Bob “a wide-eyed adventure seeker”.

Together as a team, they tweeted up a storm and successfully completed the tweeting mission.

As their reward, they received three round-the-world flights.

With plane tickets in hand, they’ll be jetting off to places like Sydney, Hong Kong, and Tokyo and they’ll be putting it all down in their blog.

For now, they’ll be saving up money, doling out tips for group travel and appropriate traveler behaviour.

“Our mission with Vagabond3 is to create an interactive, online travel experience through the exploration of cities and cultures around the world,” Rob says.

“Showcasing the accessibility of travel, we aim to encourage others to pack their bags and experience global adventures of their own.”

    @admin: I just have to say your site is the first I’ve come across this morning that doesn’t have typos every other sentence. Thank you for taking the time to write something that doesn’t look like a 5th grader put together. I apologize, just had to vent.
