You have been dreaming of sailing your way around the world several times since you were a kid. I hear you.
The good news is that if you are willing to share this adventure, Peace Boat has rocked it and can offer you this once in a lifetime experience in a silver plate. Be ready for the cost, though. Unless you want to try your luck and postulate yourself as one of the volunteers they look for months before every scheduled departure. Routes vary in every expedition but the length and idea remain the same. Haven’t seen something that appealing in years!
Skip the plane from Europe to Asia and take the Transsiberian route or Mongol Rally instead
Or go by bike, car sharing, hitch –hike or walk. It doesn’t really matter. The idea is that there’s so much to see and do in between Europe and South East of Asia and we are all skipping it. Countries that have seen misery and war some years back and a very low investment in terms of developing the tourism industry by the governments equals to an uncountable amount of secret jewels awaiting to be discovered and go mainstream. Think Silk Route, use your common sense and enjoy the ride, not just the destination!
Make your way from Alaska to Argentina overland
An all time favorite, there are endless different routes you can take depending on your personal preferences, available time and budget.

Safari hop Africa
Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Botswana. These African countries scream wildlife. Ever since we got hooked with photography, we are looking forward to witness the migrations in Kruger National Park, dipping in the Victoria falls upper natural pond, trekking Mt Kilimanjaro, camping in a Kenyan reserve, you name it!. No longer a super expensive deal as it used to be, some tour operators like My Adventure Store cater to young and adventurous people like you who want to explore Africa without breaking the bank.
Road trip New Zealand
If there was a time when Australia sounded like a dream when making it down under, these days New Zealand is the sweetest cake in Oceania for the likes of adventure seekers.
