The spark that makes us say “What if I went around the world?” Can be born differently for everyone. Some have lived abroad with their parents or have had a lot of strolls during their childhood. They have the journey in the blood. Others, on the other hand, have not been lucky enough to have traveling parents and are eager to discover the world.

From an early age, thanks to cartoons like The Mysterious Cities of Gold, we were fascinated by distant civilizations. More recently, films such as Into the Wild or Carnets de Voyage make us dream of adventures. The programs J’irai dormir chez vous or Nus et culottés and the stories of adventurers like Mike Horn or Sylvain Tesson also nourish our appetite elsewhere. Finally, travel blogs are an excellent source of inspiration.

And then, sometimes, our first far-off journeys make us want to leave longer. Discussions with friends or travel meetings that have themselves made a long trip are often a trigger to embark on the adventure.

No, you do not have to travel like that!No, you do not have to travel like that!


We all have our own motivations that push us to take off. Here is a brief overview of the main reasons that make a trip around the world worthwhile.

To get out of your comfort zone

Get out of your comfort zoneGet out of your comfort zone

When you’re in stable work with friends and family you see regularly, you end up getting into some routine.

Traveling far and long, requires us to step out of our comfort zone. We are inevitably alone (s) at times, lost (s) in a very exotic place whose language or really culture is unknown. We lose our bearings. Actions as simple as finding one’s way, taking a bus, or buying food can sometimes be quite complicated.

To achieve this is a small success, a successful challenge that provides a certain pleasure to which one can even become a little addicted. Coming out of his comfort zone, we discover what we are capable of. We apprehend its limits and we often go beyond them.


Go around the world! Just to talk about it, we are already dreaming of adventures and exotic destinations.

This dream, it seemed unattainable a few decades ago. It was thought reserved for some marginal fighters or winners of the lottery. But things have changed. Long-distance travel is now within the reach of almost everyone.

But by the way, what is it exactly around the world? How does the idea of ​​a long-distance trip come about? Why do we decide to leave? What are the barriers that prevent us from starting? At what age, with whom and for how long? What do we get out of it in the end? We will try to answer here all the questions you ask yourself.


According to Wikipedia, a world tour is a journey that consists of traveling completely and in a given direction over the earth until you return to where you started. Going around the world does not mean to see all the countries of the world, or even all the continents.

TV shows like J’Irai Dormir Chez Vous and Beijing Express have popularized an image of the traveler who leaves with a very small budget, housing homestay and hitchhiking. This is of course possible, but it ultimately only concerns a minority of travelers.

The average tourdumondist leaves for a year and visits a dozen countries, mainly in Asia and Latin America. He travels most often by plane between continents. Once there, he takes local buses, eats in small stalls or street restaurants, sleeps in cheap accommodation and sometimes homestay. Rather than traveling by plane, some choose to travel by bike, motorhome, sailboat, van …

Many travelers leave for a long time without necessarily going around the world properly speaking. We can go for six months or a year just in South America, Asia or Africa and have an equally amazing experience.

During a world tour, we travel in a very different way. We have time to improvise, to change plans, to linger in the places we like. We are quite surprised, when we start to deviate from the beaten track, to realize that many other travelers we meet are also gone for a long time. There is thus a real small community of tourdumondists who find themselves punctually along their journey.


To go traveling, you do not have to be rich. In many countries, it is possible to live easily for less than 20 € per day. In 2014, we conducted a major survey of 195 people who went on a world tour or a long trip. They told us their average budget for each country they visited. The indicated daily cost includes accommodation, food, local transportation, activities and tours.

Here are the 10 cheapest destinations for which we had the average budget of at least ten people .


    We went to Guatemala during our world tour. It is one of the most varied countries in Central America. The small Spanish colonial cities are full of charm. You can relax on the shores of Lake Atitlán, trek on a volcano and see molten lava or discover the Mayan ruins of Tikal, lost in the middle of the jungle. The Pacific coast also offers excellent surf spots.

    We also went to Guatemala during our world tour. François returned there in 2013. This small country in Central America is still spared by mass tourism and life is very cheap. We loved the small colonial towns of Granada and Leon with their colorful facades. The island of Ometepe on Lake Nicaragua, the largest in Central America, is unique with its two volcanoes. The Atlantic coast offers beautiful surf spots, while the Caribbean coast is distinguished by the unique culture of the descendants of pirates. The Corn Islands are a lost paradise in the Caribbean.

    Sylvain loved India so much that he has already been there three times. In this country, the change of scenery is guaranteed. The crowd, the smells, the noises, the heat: all the senses are put to use right out of the airport. Extraordinary temples and palaces stand side by side with crippled beggars, women in shimmering saris and sacred cows roaming nonchalantly while grazing garbage. It is often said that either we love India or we hate it. We love it!

    Laos is the cheapest country in Southeast Asia. The pace of life is particularly quiet. This country has no access to the sea and has kept its wild and welcoming side, far from the hectic life of major Asian cities. We appreciate the sweetness of life along the Mekong and the Nam River. Even the capital, Vientiane, remains on a human scale with only 800,000 inhabitants.

    Cambodia is first and foremost known for the incredible temple complex of Angkor. The roots that intertwine in the ruins give them a unique atmosphere. But the charms of this country are not limited to Angkor. Take a bike ride in the middle of the rice fields and a real pleasure. It is impossible to talk about Cambodia without mentioning the darkest part of its history, the period of the Khmer Rouge, which remains engraved in the memory of the older generations.

While the 7 wonders of the ancient world have all disappeared except the pyramid of Kéhops, it was time to designate the 7 new wonders of the world.

This has been done since 2007 thanks to the great global vote organized by the New7wonders Fundation.

Without further ado here is the list of wonders. For the curious, we tell you more about this election at the end of the article …


The Great Wall of China at sunsetThe Great Wall of China at sunset

Defensive wall in the north of China of 20000 km long, seven meters high on average, built between the 3rd and the 17th century. It crosses extremely varied landscapes, green mountains around Beijing, desert corridors at the crossing of Jiayu … The most touristic part of the wall receives up to 70000 visitors per day in high season. In fact, astronauts do not see it with the naked eye from the porthole of their space station. It’s a myth, yes! The wall is not perfectly continuous either, but formed of several sections.


Petrus site in JordanPetrus site in Jordan

Petra is a major archaeological site. There was a city created during antiquity in the 8th century BC. BC later occupied by the Nabataeans around the 6th century. It was abandoned and fell into oblivion and was rediscovered by a Swiss explorer in 1812.

What makes the exceptional value of Petra are, first of all, the monumental façades directly carved into the rock whose architecture reflects a mixture of Eastern and Greek influences, but also its incredible access by a magnificent canyon along 1.5 km and only two meters wide at the narrowest point and of course its historical interest.


Christ the RedeemerChrist the Redeemer

The Christ the Redeemer is a statue located at the top of Mount Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and erected in 1931. It is thirty meters high, making it one of the largest statues in the world. Like the statue of liberty, it was made (in part) by a French sculptor.

Already impressive in its beauty, its size and location overlooking the city, it is even more so on average six times a year when struck by lightning.


    The great coliseum of RomeThe great coliseum of Rome

    The Colosseum of Rome was built between 70 and 80 AD. AD by more than 60000 Jewish slaves. It is the largest amphitheater built by the Roman Empire.

    It was a place of spectacle where fights of animals, gladiators, reconstructions of famous battles, mythological dramas or public executions took place. It could accommodate 50000 spectators. More than 500,000 people would have died there and more than a million animals.

    It has ceased to be used as a show venue from the Middle Ages. Today, it is in ruins especially because of earthquakes, but it continues to give an idea of ​​the power that had the Roman Empire at its peak.


    Machu PicchuMachu Picchu

    Machu Picchu is a mountain on which are the ruins of an ancient Inca town at 2438 meters above sea level. It is located a hundred kilometers from Cuzco.

    What makes Machu Picchu worthy of its place in the seven new wonders of the world is the beauty of the place and its mystery. The landscape that surrounds it often foggy, we know little about the ruins, the nearest village is accessible only by an old train or walk following the rails from a power station.


    The Mayan site of Chichen Itza in MexicoThe Mayan site of Chichen Itza in Mexico

    Chichen Itza is an ancient Mayan city located in the Yucatan in Mexico. It was the capital of the whole region. The city dates back to at least the 8th century. It was in decline, but still inhabited at the time of the Spanish conquest in the 16th century.

    There are, in particular, the biggest ball playground, several very special water holes (cenotes) and the perfectly restored “El Castillo” pyramid on which light projections are organized at night.


    The Taj MahalThe Taj Mahal

    The Taj Mahal is a white marble funerary monument built by the Mughal Emperor Shâh Jahân in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is located in the city of Agra not far from Delhi. Its construction involved over 20,000 people and was completed in 1648. It combines Islamic, Iranian, Ottoman and Indian architectural influences.

When we arrive at the Colombian border post, the customs officer asks Francois for how many days we want our visa. “Sesenta” answers Francois. The customs stamps our passports. I check. He gave us a visa for fifteen days! We ask him why. “I asked you twice and you answered me twice ‘ocho dias'”. No way to change the buffer. We have to go to the immigration office in Bogota to make an extension.

We take the bus. The trip lasts twenty hours. Through the window, we see beautiful landscapes, deep cannons lined with lush vegetation. We arrive in Bogota the next morning and settle down at the international youth hostel in the city. This one is huge. There must be at least 100 beds. But we are the only ones here, a little sad as an atmosphere.

We go to the immigration office to extend our visa. To get there, we take the Transmilenio. It is an excellent transport system where long buses run in dedicated corridors on the main avenues of the city. They stop at sorts of metro stops with automatic sliding doors. Not easy to go to these funny stations and find his bus. It is considered stupid to look at pretty shemas and paintings on the walls with empty eyes. Finally no need to be an otists with superpowers to understand but at the beginning it challenges. It also transports a lot of people quickly and, as a result, the city has far fewer traffic problems than the other South American capitals we have crossed.

Arrive at the immigration office, we are told that we must pay to extend our visa. We raise a little voice. We must not abuse, it is still not our fault if we had only fifteen days. Finally, after trading as in Morocco the guy we deal with agrees to give us an extra fifteen days without being charged. Apparently everything is negotiable.

The next day, we move to another hostel in the neighborhood of Candelaria we had spotted the day before. This colorful student district is really nice, with lots of nice little bars and frescoes on the walls. It reminds a little Valparaíso. There is a good atmosphere in our hostal. In the evening everyone eats together and Baden Powel, a Colombian who is there with his Australian girlfriend, takes us all to a salsa bar.

The following days, we visit Bogota and its surroundings. We leave to visit the salt cathedral of Zipaquira, an hour bus ride from the city. This immense underground cathedral was erected in the abandoned corridors of a salt mine. The main hall is gigantic. We also visit the museum of gold in which, as the name suggests, you can see thousands of pre-Columbian objects all in gold.

One night we go out with the group of the hostal in a small bar to go to see a concert of a friend of two Irish women who live with us. The concert is nice. In the end, the others leave. We stay with Francois and sympathize with a couple, a Colombian and a Venezuelan, super nice. We take a few tequila tours together and invite us to follow them to a salsa bar where friends are waiting for them. Leaving at 3am at the other end of the city in a place we do not know with people we did not know a few hours ago … Are we not going to be stuck in an evening? galley without means of return, in addition I am even more about remembering our address and the girlfriend of the guy is really mechament drunk after all this tekila. We try it and we take a taxi together and arrive at a small bar where we meet their friends. We stay a little here with them but the atmosphere is a little quiet, it seems a disco Tourcoing in a Latin style. We just have enough to be polite and we go.

We also meet Nancy and Romain, for the fourth time since the beginning of our trip. For them Colombia has a very special role in their journey around the world. Nancy is of Colombian origin but it is only the second time she comes there. For her, it’s the discovery of her entire Colombian family. They live in Bogota At 2 big mothers of Nancy who are not really of his family but at the same time if still: a complicated history. They tell us that in the neighborhood where they live, a taxi driver was killed the day before. The area where we stay looks pretty safe, but apparently this is not the case throughout the city. We find him and two friends of their Colombian friends, in one of the main avenues of the city.

It’s Sunday and the big arteries in the center are closed to traffic. There are plenty of people on foot, by bike or rollerblading. It’s also a kind of sell-off where people sell all kinds of things on the streets. We even see a place where people make bets around a circle of plastic bowls pierced from doors. In the middle there is a guinea pig. If the animal enters the bowl on which we put his piece, we win the bet. We all leave together in a neighborhood that is an old village, since encompasses in the city. It’s so cute. There too, there is a kind of craft market in the streets and groups playing cumbia of the Caribbean coast or jazz-rock. There is really a good atmosphere.

We do not see the time passing here. It has been five days since we are here. We have to move if we do not want to miss the Baranquilla Carnival in a few days. We take a night bus to the Zona Cafetaria.


Upon arrival at Santiago Airport, we face our first language challenge. We do not have a pen to fill customs forms. How do you say pen in Spanish? No idea ! Thanks to a mix of Spanglish and sign language, we manage to find one. That’s it, we are in Chile!

We find a backpacker in Brasil, the student district of the city. It is new, very well decorated and the people who work there are very welcoming. We feel immediately at home here. There is even a terrace with wicker armchairs, perfect to sit down and enjoy the small Chilean wines.

In the city we feel good, despite the traffic and the pollution. Unlike Australia, here people know the concept of terrace. Our neighborhood is full of small bars and quiet restaurants. The atmosphere is a little reminiscent of southern Spain. We are definitely Latin, we feel much more at home here, even if I exceed everyone with a head on the street and it’s a bit of a joke at first. It is true that the Chileans are not very big.

We meet Nancy and Romain, a Swiss-Colombian and a Frenchman, with whom we spend a day wandering around the city. We climb to the top of a hill at the top of which is perched a giant statue of the Virgin Mary, a little like Christ of Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, but in less big anyway. From the top we have a beautiful view of the city with the Andes in the background, but they are a little clouded by a thick cloud of yellowish pollution. After three days, we decide to go for a walk in Valparaiso, the coastal town near Santiago.

Below are some hiking gems in Brazil that include national parks, mountains, and waterfalls. Take a few things for climbing like karabiners, rope, and duct tape.

Itatiaia National Park

It is popularly known as the first national park of the country. It is situated near São Paulo and it is separated as Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais. Geographically, its landscape is divided into the plains and plateaus. The most important summits are Maciço das Prateleiras (Shelves Massif) and Pico das Agulhas Negras. Shelves Massif is the gateway that leads to two trails to the summit, escarpments, rock formations, and caves. Pico das Agulhas Negras is the highest mountain in Itatiatia.

The Atlantic Rainforest Discovery Coast

It is an UNESCO certified biodiversity site that shows the remnants of the Atlantic rainforests and has eight protected areas. It is located between the states Bahia and Espírito Santo. It has innumerable species of plants and animals that form an integral part of the ecosystem. While trekking, explore the shrub vegetation; three geomorphologic areas that present magma outcrops, plateaus and tabular hills, and river and sea deposits; three national parks, such as Descobrimento, Monte Pascoal, and Pau Brasil; the federation reserves Sooretama and Una; and the three unique reserves Veracruz, Pau Brasil, and Linhares. It is noteworthy pointing that evolution of biodiversity has been entailed from the amalgamation of endemic species of the Atlantic Forest with those of the Amazon ecosystem.

The Amazon River

Start from Manaus to go deep into the world’s largest rainforest Amazon Forest, which has a total area of about 2 million square miles. To the east of Manuas flow the Negro and Solimões Rivers and to the west flows the Amazon River. Head to Anavilhanas National Park on the Negro River, which is one of the largest river archipelagos in the world.

Endemic species of plants and animals, stretches of flora, canyons, and valleys here will be a breathtaking experience. While trekking in the Amazon Forest, you may canoe in the calm Amazon waters, stay in a thatched house, explore fiendish tarantulas and jaguars, and dine under huts.

Chapada Diamantina

This idyllic national park has stunning blue lagoons, steep georges, grottoes, and red rock formations. You will be awe-inspired to see the flat top cliffs throughout the journey. The park is easily accessed from the bustling city of Lencois. Some striking waterfalls are Fumaça, Gruta da lapa Doce, Gruta da Pratinha, and Morro de Pai Inacio. Enjoy the zipline to Gruta da Pratinha, filled with buoyancy of lush vegetation. Have halts to some pools ideal for splashing and swimming like Poco Encantando along the trails. Caves and the reflective azure waters of the pools are fascinating. The Devil’s Pool Waterfall, half an hour from Lencois, is probably the first or last destination to head because of it being the starting point to Chapada.

Iguaçu Falls

It is at the borders between Argentina and Brazil, which has around 375 falls flowing with high intensity. You may google at the falls from an observation bridge known as “Devil’s Throat” and go for canoeing.

Packing Tips for Travel

Packing smart and light is quite necessary for a comfortable trip. Light baggage ensures hassle free travel. Here are some essential packing tips to enjoy your travel.

General Packing Tips

Regular use/handy items: Regular use or your personal handy items need to be taken instantly or detached from the luggage whenever required. So, have a checklist and start packing them after clothes and valuables. Include some useful items such as ear drops, eye masks, medicines, a small towel, and scissors (less than 6 inches).

A range of plastic bags and Ziplocs: A range of plastic bags and Ziploc covers are a great choice for separating wet/dirty clothes from clean clothes, keeping souvenirs, and taking things without requiring the backpack to be emptied.

Pouch for Personal Hygiene Products: Consider carrying tissue wraps, hand napkins, sanitizers, sprays and similar personal hygiene products in a separate pouch so that we can utilize them wherever required.

Fashion Accessories: Scarves and sarongs serve versatile purposes. Being lightweight and easy to fold, they can be used for wrapping to avoid downpour and protection against cold or sun apart from being a great fashion accessory.

Vacuum and space bags: It is not surprising that the entire packaging may be done just with vacuum bags, space bags, and plastic bags. Being airtight and waterproof, these bags provide great room for storage. They can fit in stuff three to four times greater than conventional bags. These sorts of bags are highly recommended for flight travels.

Laundry bags for liquids: Hotel laundry bags can be used for storing liquids. These mesh sacks are hygienic to use and are reusable and washable. Even they can carry easily disposable liquids without producing odor. Also being soundproof, these laundry bags will not produce whispering sound while searching objects in darkness.

Suitcase containing straps: Strapping clothes in a suitcase will make them tightly packed. The suitcase is also convenient for concealing personal notes, USBs, money, and the like. Suitcases with flexible handles and trolleys are lightweight and easy to carry.

Strings and elastic bands: Using some strings or bands for fastening small objects eliminates spills or fall.

Rucksacks: Rucksacks are the excellent choice for covering pillows, blankets, quilts and heavy clothes with a high degree of compactness and packing things in order. They are featured with compression straps, zipped pockets and the detachable harness belt. They are ideal for travelers, campers, and hikers.

Family packing tips

Often those travelling with kids tend to believe that they might require a whole range of products for their kids. But this is not true always. Try to carry only the essential items and leave the rest that can be bought outside. You can download apps for toddlers that do not require internet connection. This will keep them engaged en route without carrying a range of toys. When packing clothes, try to roll, and keep them; this will occupy less space compared to the conventional packing method.

Packing Tips for Women

When it comes to clothing for women, having a choice of common colors is great, as they can mix and match outfits. A set of lightweight tops and jeans is ideal for both indoor and outdoor. Bring a set of waist coats, long sleeves, and pants for formal wears. Avoid carrying hiking shoes, as they tend to be heavy. Instead, try a fashionable sneaker, which gives good comfort to your foot.

Baggage Allowance

The most important suggestion to flight passengers is reducing the weight of the luggage to meet the airline requirements. Otherwise, it may burn a hole in their pocket. Try to wash clothes on the road as you travel in order to reduce the weight of the luggage you carry. You may also take dual-purpose clothes along with you, which will bring your luggage size down.

Following these tips will help you in managing your travel in an efficient way. Enjoy your trip! Bon Voyage!
