The weather will never be ideal on all your stops.

RTW Duration. You could whip round the world in a weekend if you flew non-stop. However, the minimum duration of most RTW tickets is ten days — still a breathless whirl.

One thing that travellers often forget to mentally prepare for, is the different concept of time and space on the road.

Trains Around the World

Trains are the safest, most environmental, and often the fastest and most comfortable means of land transportation.

One of the biggest decisions facing any traveller, is whether or not to go alone. There are several factors to consider: Benefits of traveling solo Travelling solo does not necessarily mean you’ll be travelling alone for the whole trip.
