Brothers win contest to live out 'bucket list'

SAN DIEGO, June 8 (UPI) -- Two San Diego brothers are making up an all-time "bucket list" after winning a contest from a travel company to visit 25 countries in 25 weeks.

MyDestination.com picked Alex and Mark Ayling from thousands of entries after the two made a road trip video while teaching English in Spain. They dubbed themselves the "Vagabrothers."

The video and a subsequent test of fitness and resilience against a total of 10 other entrants -- contests including walking on fire and making chocolate truffles -- earned them $10,000 in expenses and $50,000 to travel the world, U-T San Diego said Friday.

Their working "bucket list" -- that is, the list of things someone wants to do before he kicks the bucket -- includes climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, participating in a Bedouin camel caravan in the desert, swimming with sharks, bungee jumping in New Zealand, meditating in a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas and participating in a traditional Thai full moon celebration.
