Over at BootsnAll, we like to promote long-term, RTW travel. We hope to inspire others to make their travel dreams come true and take a trip around the world. But a recent article challenged the thought that everyone wants to take a round the world trip.
The author posed an interesting question, “Is RTW travel for everyone?” In this article, she talks about how she doesn’t really want to take a RTW trip and has become an expat instead. She discusses the reasons behind not wanting to travel RTW, and points out the advantages of living abroad instead.
It’s an interesting thought that honestly created a lot of discussion and debate within our company. Is expat living a viable alternative to long-term, RTW travel? A commenter asked if the author should dismiss round the world travel if she’s never done it before.
What do you think? Is RTW travel for everyone? Can one dismiss an entire genre of travel if he or she has never done it? How do you know what you will or won’t like if you’ve never tried it before? Comment below to share your opinions.
