Figuring out 'How to book a Round the World Flight' might be the most important part of planning your trip.
Not only will it be a sizable portion of your overall travel budget, but once you press 'book now' your trip becomes REAL for the first time. All those hours spent daydreaming about waking up in a new country transform into something tangible when you see your name in all caps on an airline ticket.
Two of the biggest questions Michael and I have received about our upcoming trip are: "How do you plan an Around the World Trip?" and "How do you choose which countries to visit?"
Well, as one might expect, those questions don't come with easy answers. After all, there are roughly 194 recognized countries scattered across 7 continents and 5 oceans. Time constraints, route logistics, packing lists/visa requirements, climate, and budget are just some of the topics to consider. With all of these factors bouncing around your head, figuring out where to begin may be the hardest part.
