Has anyone ever been on a round the world trip? Been dreaming of one since 2004. As I get older I think to myself my life is half over....

I plan
Singapore to Seoul by plane
Seoul to China by ship
China to Paris by train via transfer sobering and whatever rail there is
Paris to new York by plane
New York to West coast by land
West coast to Japan by plane
Japan to Singapore by plane

Anyone ever had such dreams? Anyone ever travelled from Seoul to China by plane or china to Paris by train?

As I get older I thinking to myself just yolo.

that is quite true, you will get tire and loss momentum if travel for too long, better if going to one continent at a time, spend maximum a month.

Round the world normally encompasses South America n even South Africa so u might one to consider these places but its going to be ex n u need more days as well. Alternatively, u can split into 2 or more trips. Enjoy!!

I did a trip from London to Singapore by train, it was a solo trip but was in my late 20's. Can pass you the itinerary if you like but might require some updating by now  [laugh]

 

I think any trip by plane is fairly straight forward, during my travels I met a chap on the trans-mongolian who was doing a round the world trip. It was round trip via business class and he mention it was actually fairly cheap considering if he booked them separate.

Sound more like covering the distance of the circumference of the earth than travel round the world leh.  I will be good to cover most of the trip by land if possible so that you get to see the countries en-route to your next destination.

 

Good thread, anyone has done it please share and also give us tips on cost and duration. :a-happy:

Posting up my planning route when I did a train travel from the UK, this was done in 2010 so the train routes must be re validated, Philipkee take a view and see if you like to clarify any parts of the journey. I can post pics as well if you want to know the condition of the trains. 680 GBP was for first class on the transmongolian roughly 7 days.

 

Journey will be like this

The trains were okay (except for this one in Latvia), but I was thrown off the train in Poland due to some visa issues and had to take a 24 hour bus ride up to Latvia now really gave a sore butt  [laugh]

 

Lucky was young then, my army fitness not fully worn off yet  [sweatdrop]

I want to go around the world.

So many times I posted here looking for a good looking rich young lady

to take me round the world stay in 5 star hotels, eat in fancy restaurants

visit the famous sites Eiffel Tower, London Bridge, Vatican, NY, SF, LV,

I don't mind doing Train like Orient Express, ship like QE2 and even drive

Like Route 66 and drive from one end of Japan to the other in an open top MX5.

I will even provide companionship and physical love.

Please PM me before my mailbox gets too full.

:D

I have been to Philippines many times but never saw much of it.

Airport hotel office never even got to go to Airforce One before it closed down.

I have been to Cebu but never saw the beach and even been to Ilo Ilo like the movie

but only saw the airport, meeting room and hotel room and they all look the same.

:D
