Issaquah native Annie Cheng fell short in her quest to become Jauntaroo.com’s chief world explorer.
Cheng was one of five finalists competing to earn a chance to travel around the world and blog about the adventure for the website.
The honor ultimately went to Tyson Mayr, a worthy choice, Cheng said.

Issaquah native Annie Cheng is one step closer to securing what is being described as the “best job around the world.”
Cheng is a top-50 finalist for Jauntaroo.com’s chief world explorer, earning a chance to be sent around the world and blog about the adventure.
She passed through the first round of voting, after her introduction video received more than 17,000 likes.
For the second round, applicants had to feature their hometowns. In her video, Cheng visited the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery and made a jump with Seattle Paragliding.
