Want a free, all-expenses-paid, six-month-long trip to the Caribbean? Well, if you're a qualified physical therapist or orthopedic surgeon, you just might be in luck. Professional kite surfer Jeremie Tronet lives in the Grenadines island chain with his girlfriend, Zoe, who recently fell and broke her femur. She had surgery to fix it, but she needs to stay off it for two months and will then need to be rehabilitated. The couple don't have health insurance, so the physical therapy she'll need would be quite pricey, AOL reports. Zoe would also have to travel to Martinique for the entire five- to six-month course of therapy. So Tronet had an idea: Convince a therapist to come to her.

He made the offer earlier this month on his Facebook page and his website, informing interested parties that their travel, food, accommodations, and other expenses would be covered—and they can bring along a plus-one, the Penny Hoarder reports. Plus, they can take free kite-surfing lessons and fun excursions, Yahoo News reports. "We are very happy to see the story being share[d] by everyone as we hope it will inspire a lot of people in thinking positive what ever happens in life," reads a follow-up post on Tronet's Facebook page, which also notes that the couple are hearing from hundreds of people per day and haven't yet decided who will come help Zoe out. If you still want to take a shot, send your resume and a photo to, the Mirror reports. (You could also try to win a chance to use the Eiffel Tower as a vacation home.)
