For me a Round the World Trip does not mean I get in a plane, travel eastern, spend a day then move forwards, come to Indonisia, then Australia, spend a week or so, from there move west of Australia (which is huge) and then fly to the USA. And then upwards probably, and back to Europe.
I find this ridiculous. It gives you the chance to have a round trip, but for me this is not what I would really want when I have this trip.
Now how I see it.....Well,when the time comes I will get a one way ticket, have ample of time, probably more than a year, and just leave. Move to the east, and without rush, spend at least a month in a place, use both coach and trains, mix with locals, and forget about the coming back. I will see as much as possible then move on to the next, next next, and each time because I will have time, I will look for the cheapest deal as I move on. Even try to work part time while in a place I like.
I will even stay longer, probably 2 years before coming back. For me, just to get in a plane and do a circle is ridiculous......they call it RWTrip but if you see it deeper, you will see that it is just as any other trip we have anywhere.
How much time do you have for this trip anyway? I am interested to know. How much money do you think it will cost you?
Well, as I said, I would buy one ticket, and as I go I will try to find good deals - of course nothing will make me hurry back. This is for me the real RWT.
Don't you agree? Any second thoughts? http://www.travelpod.com/members/greekcypriot
