As someone who is now in the travel business, I often think back to those first few weeks of planning after my wife and I decided to take a RTW trip. We were clueless on where to begin, and everything seemed completely overwhelming. So when going over article ideas in our editorial meetings at BootsnAll, we came up with a plan for a new series called Indie Flight Hacking, designed to help those people planning a RTW trip.
The premise behind this series is to give guidance and offer ideas on where to go, what to think of, and how to plan an epic, RTW trip. In the first installment of the series, the author breaks down a hub-city RTW trip that visits New York, London, Delhi, and Bangkok. She discusses best times to go, options for expanding this to other cities and countries nearby, and even gives budgeting information for each destination.
In the second article, the author delves into the RTW trip that he and his wife took a few years back. This Classic RTW Trip visits some of the most popular backpacking and long-term travel destinations in the world – South America, New Zealand, SE Asia, and India. In addition the same type of practical information you’ll find in the first article, you will also find sample airfare pricing both for a RTW ticket and a DIY ticket.
If you are planning or thinking about planning a RTW trip, are these types of articles helpful? What more (or less) would you like to see from this new series? Comment below to leave your feedback.
