RTW Weather

Weather:

Why is weather important? Because nobody wants to be caught in India during Monsoon season or in Egypt during a scorching hot summer! Understanding the weather patterns helps you to optimize your trip for the best weather everywhere you go. It also means I can potentially stay in Summer for 1 entire year! 😀 Perfect. This white skin could use a substantial tan!

Grand total = 59 Countries

My Feasible Route

Route:

Argentina – Spain – Morocco – Turkey – Lebanon – Jordan – Egypt – UAE – Oman – Sri Lanka – India – Nepal – China – Australia – New Zealand

Grand Total of: 15 Countries

Difference in Fantasy and Feasibility? Time and Money.

My Fantasy Trip would take many years because I would want to spend 1 month minimum in most countries. With 59 Countries on the list – that would take just under 5 years.

My Feasible Trip is 15 countries and would take me 1 year to 1.5 Years to complete.

My Fantasty Trip would cost me over $125,000 for 5 years of travel (average of $25,000 per year)

My Feasible Trip would cost me $25,000. (estimated, for the year)

My Feasible trip is within grasps – my Fantasy trip is something I’ll to save up for and wait awhile longer – but someday before age 50 – I’ll go on my fantasy trip. It may not be on one long bout – maybe in parts – Region by Region – But I will go. I will live. I will learn.
