For most backpackers and travellers the holy grail would be to take part in a Round the World trip. This is true for myself. From the blogs I have been following a lot people have undertaken such a trip. It has been used as a springboard for continuous travel by others.
Why should anyone want to take such a journey? I suspect it is all about the adventure of being on the road for a long period. You can see a lot of the world in a short period or you can spend a long in one country. Some people take three months while others will take a whole year. Of course, such a trip takes a lot of planning and simply cannot be undertaken on a whim. Particularly where do you want to go, how much money do you need to save, do you have the vaccinations, documents.
For myself it is one of the dreams I have in life. I want to undertake such a trip before I get too old. However, age should not be a barrier to travel.
In my ideal trip I would like to see the following:-
- New Zealand
How does that sound to everyone? Where would you go on your trip?
By writing about my trip I want to use it as a spur for me to stop dreaming and start planning. Best start saving my pennies.
Until the next post, stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
