Circling the globe is the ultimate adventure. Not only do you visit strange and exotic locations, but you literally “conquer” the Earth. It took Ferdinand Magellan years to do the same trip by ship, plus he didn’t even make it the entire way. All you need is a flexible airpass, a small savings, and an open mind. Whether this is on your gap year or just time off to reevaluate yourself, an around the world trip is sure to put your life in order. While Brits tend to do this trip most often, there are tens of thousands of people of all ages and races that make this trip every year.
