Planning a world trip can be a lot of fun, however it also requires a lot of research and work. You have to ask yourself a view simple questions before you can start creating your around the world route. This includes your budget “how much money can i spend?“, the required visa’s “does my passport allow me to visit certain countries?“, the way you travel “do i travel by bus, airplane, foot etc?” and your backpack “what do i bring and how do i bring it?“. After you answered these question, you can start planning your trip.
Everyone wil plan their trip differently, depending on your taste, budget, transportation and passport. If you have a large budget and a passport that allows you to visit most countries, planning your trip will be easy. Simple go to YouTube check some videos of great places around the world and take your pick. However if you have a smaller budget, you should consider doing a bit more research. People on a budget will most likely skip places such as Europa, try to avoid paying for expensive airplane flights and will probably use backpack hostels as their main accommodation.
Since we have travelled a lot in the past, we already know which countries we would like to visit. And since we have passports from The Netherlands and South-Korea we shouldn’t get into to much trouble getting the right visas.
We are still working on our World Trip Plan, but luckily we have over 10 months left before we start our great adventure. We did however already finish some of the more fun stuff, choosing countries we would like to visit. Right now our plan is to visit 40 countries within 2 years, but we are very flexible and it is likely our plan will change constantly. At the end of October in 2015 we will leave Australia to start our trip in New Zealand. After New Zealand we will go up to Asia while traveling east to Europe. At the end of our Europe trip we will fly to South Amerika. The atlas above gives you a better idea of the places we would like to visit.
On our list we have the following countries. However, this is not our final list.
* Asia: Cambodia, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Turkey, Dubai, Oman, Jordan and Indonesia
