Round the World in 180 Days


20 December 2018

DAY 197: today is the last day of my trip as I head back home for Christmas with family and friends and start back at work in January. In total I visited 24 different countries and got to check off 4 more of the 7 wonders of the world. This was the trip of the lifetime and I feel really lucky to have been able to travel to so many new places with some of my absolute best friends. My current plan is to work another 12-18 months to save up and take another trip all over again. Iโ€™m kind of interested in building out a van and driving from Alaska to Patagonia or traveling throughout the South Pacific and see more of Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand and some of the South Pacific islands. If anyone has any suggestions on their favorite places theyโ€™ve been to please let me know in the comments! Hopefully in the next few weeks I can edit all of my GoPro footage and have a video from the trip which I will post a link to once itโ€™s done. Cheers ๐Ÿฅ‚ ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ›ฌ
