GLOBAL - January 15, 2014 - If you're looking for a copywriter to join your team, Mark van der Heijden, aka The Backpacker Intern, will work for you for free. His only ask? Food and a place to stay.
Van der Heijden arrived in Bangkok on January 14, and will be traveling through Denpasar in Indonesia, Taipei in Taiwan, Hawaii, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York in the US, and Reykjavik in Iceland before going home to Amsterdam.
