I have no much information on this gogobot company, but I surely believe that they are very good in what they do. This position in particular is not based on any location. They are looking for guys who are really passionate about travelling and who are also a very good writers. Take my suggestion that if you are not that good with your writing skill(mean you should also have very good in spelling, grammar, imagination, vocabulary) you better back of from this post and search another one for yourself. I case if you feel that your are good enough, I insist you to apply for this position and explore the job. Who know as one day they might give you tickets for a free travel destination as compensation(ha ha... i was just kidding, i am not completely wrong thoughhh...). Also remember that you have complete information on at-least 10 travel destination across the world which are famous enough to write a blog on them. So, by now you would have been confused that how they select you, as this location is more like a freelance work. Need not worry about that or think of any wrong ways. They are going to thoroughly ask you about the things you know about travel and they check your grammar to very minute level. They would also ask your articles which you have written on travel. I don't want to make you stay longer, just have a look at their specification by yourself

Love social media and sharing knowledge almost as much as you love travel and learning about the world
Have a talent for stringing together a sentence (prior professional writing experience preferred but not required; show us your skills and we’ll put you to work)
Use impeccable grammar and spelling, as you’ll be helping us build a database where one tiny error might mean you’ve just added the new city of San Francicso (cover letters or resumes with more than one or two errors will, as you can imagine, go straight into the trash)
Have the travel experience, helpful attitude and daily attention required to answer readers' questions on our home page
Know your way around a website or possibly behind a web page
Have the ability to work on a variety of editorial and technical tasks, research efficiently and write quickly
Know at least 5-10 travel destinations well (especially Greece, the Caribbean, India, Germany and Berlin, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Scotland, Indonesia, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, South Africa)

Are available approximately 20-35 hours per week, including a weekly Skype check-in Tuesday morning at 9am PST
Send an email with the cover letter in the body of the email
Include a run-on list of the top 5-20 destinations in which you have knowledge or expertise (feel free to expound upon the list elsewhere, but please create one list we can cut and paste into a spreadsheet cell)
Include links to travel-related content you’ve had published (articles, blogs, reviews, etc)
Create a profile on Gogobot.com and answer two questions in the Gogobot Network with recommendations (if you don’t want to create a profile, we understand -- but please send links to two Gogobot questions with hypothetical answers in the body of your email)
