Are you game for a trip around the world?!??!

I just read this article:

http://www.indiatimes.com/news/world/this-indian-family-just-drove-down-from-bengaluru-to-paris-in-111-days-247032.html

Dang son!!!! What an amazing adventure!! I remember reading about the girl (now that I think about it, I remember reading about 2 different girls. Australians. I think?) who sailed around the world. I’ve heard plenty of stories in my days of people who have flown an around the world trip. Sounds cool! Sounds a bit too good to be true though. And expensive!! I thought I would check it out and go over it with my lovely blog readers. So yes, lets check it out together and plan a fake trip!! 🙂

Here’s a website I found:

http://www.skyteam.com/en/Flights-and-Destinations/Round-the-World-Planner/

So after I clicked on “Build your Round the World Itinerary” and got to the page with the rules I was like whatareyousayingthisiswaytoocomplicatedtoprocessonafridaymorningughhhh

I mean obviously there are rules but I totally feel sorry for the people who work customer service for this company after I read/or tried to read the rules. Anyways, lets plan the trip!!

I went with option #1 on the left hand side of the screen.

  • Start off in NYC of course (I chose JFK airport & decided to go Eastbound)

(I really wanted to stop in Trinidad but ITDIDNTLETME!!!!)

  • Havana, Cuba (assuming US citizens can go there now!!)
  • Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
  • Marrakech, Morocco (This was tough bc I’d like to go to Casablanca too and some other places, but I once met a Moroccan who told me Marrakech is just like Aladdin, so yeah. Done)
  • Nice, France (although I would love to explore Monaco , Cannes, St. Tropez and other parts of the South of France..this was a tough choice too)
  • Venice, Italy (God, another hard one!!! Italy is one of those places in which I want to explore many places throughout the country!!)
  • Split, Croatia
  • Mykonos, Greece
  • Istanbul, Turkey
  • Cairo, Egypt
  • Larnaca, Cyprus
  • Dubai, UAE
  • Mumbai, India
  • Male, Maldives

amIdoneyet????

#NO!

*#!^&*@%#?!&#^%#*^$#@% !!!!!!

  • Phuket, Thailand
  • Cebu, Philippines
  • Guam (I actually was trying to figure out an exotic island in this region OMG the pics I found of Guam look ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING!!)
  • Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Papeete, French Polynesia
  • San Jose Cabo, Mexico
  • Roatan, Honduras

Okay so I clicked the button to create the flight path and they told me my list is invalid!! LOL. I think it didn’t work because follow the rules regarding the flight path and well, my list is just LONG. Luckily I was just playing! But if the opportunity DOES strike for me to embark on such an adventure….its going to take foreverrrrr to plan!!!

My thoughts on this website though (although I am assuming anywhere you try to book an around the world trip would all be similar) kinda is annoying because you take so much time figuring out where you want to go and do research on new, exotic places to add to your list, and then they wanna tell you your trip is invalid. FAIL. It just seems tedious & time consuming. Plus I wonder how long you are able to stay at each destination, which is a whole nuther set of planning and researching!! I usually like to take little excursions when I go places too. But I guess if you are focused, determined and plan it all properly I’m sure it would be an experience of a lifetime for sure!!!! It’s IS something that I wouldn’t mind adding to my bucketlist. I think I would want to make sure I was financially stable enough and able to take the time. So could be a future bucketlist addition for sure!

How did you guys do??? Let me know if you tried it out & where you planned on going!

About kbahri114

Hi! I'm an outgoing, bubbly New Yorker of Indian origin. I grew up in a Punjabi home and was raised with Hindu traditions in America. I am extremely in touch with my Indian roots and am thankful to have had been taught about my culture while growing up, which is why I have a great appreciation towards my culture and like to share it with others as well as learn about different cultures. At one point in my life I came to the realization about how we have been blessed with the gift of life on the planet earth. When I'm 90 years old lying on my death bed looking back at my life, I want to make sure I took full advantage of my life and explored this amazing world we live in! I knew traveling was something I had to start doing. I'm not the type to live in a bubble my entire life. I've always been intrigued by the world and different cultures. I have always wanted to explore and see as much of the world as I can! Life is all about experiences, meeting people, learning new ways and concepts and taking risks. I'm also very fond of photography, fashion, shopping, having fun, being loud, laughing and cracking crazy jokes, music and dance (I used to dance traditional for festivals back during the school days). This blog is meant to be fun & entertaining but it also provides my personal experiences and what you might expect to discover while traveling. It also will include random thoughts and stories since a kaleidoscope is meant to be a colorfully shaken mix of happiness! I hope you find my blog interesting, fun, funny & informative, but most of all entertaining!!
