A world trip is the best thing a travel enthusiast can make. The freedom, the impressions, the experiences. But how do you start a world trip? If only you could just go. In this article I share all our world travel experiences.

All highlights + tips:

A world trip is a journey in which someone travels around the world from east to west or vice versa. Opinions are divided about the meaning of the term. Some call a world trip a journey in which you visit more than two continents, while others think that traveling around the world is only a world trip if you don’t come home during your trip. But hey, what is home? Isn’t it just a feeling?

Plan your worldtrip!

The pre planning is just as fun! When planning your trip, you have a number of things that you take into account:

  • What will your worldtriproute be: where to go and when?
  • How much money should you save for a worldtrip?
  • What kind of ticket do you need?
