Planning vacation trips has always been an exciting thing and especially when if you plan for trips around the world there would be no limits to that excitement. Short listing of places to visit, reading through the reviews of the hotels, finding out the best mode of travel, getting educated about the various places and customs is something that completely enthralls us.
The best time to go
When it comes to traveling around the world there is ideally no best season to do so. During your trips around the world you would be visiting quite a few different places across latitudes and longitudes and by no means can you ever go to all the places during their best time to visit. While planning try to remember that there is no best time to make a trip around the world. Any and everyday is the right time to set sails.
Places to cover
There are 196 countries in the world today and there are thousands of spots that each country has to offer. It is not possible to cover all the places unless you have a constant funding source and unlimited time for traveling around the world covering each and every city in each and every country.
When you plan for trips around the world you have to evaluate the merit of each tourist place and check with yourself if the attractions of that place match your desires. If you do not find any joy looking at the sea or spending time on the sea beaches you would certainly not want to plan your travel to lands like Seychelles, Maldives or Hawaii which are known only for their beaches. A trip around the world should ideally cover the most historic places, places that boast of the man made wonders on their soil or places which offer mesmerizing natural landscapes.
Mode of travel
If you have plans of traveling around the world with round the world tickets, you can opt to go to major places like Los Angeles, Paris, Zurich, Munich, Berlin, Rome, Amsterdam, London, New Delhi, Bangkok, Sydney or Auckland which (along with other major cities) are covered by the airlines alliances that would issue you round the world ticket. While traveling by means of round the world ticket you just need to remember that minimum travel period is 10 days and maximum is one year.
To avoid spending a lot of money on air tickets it is smart that you do not fly between each point of your travel. You can land in one of the major cities of any country and travel over land and fly out to another country from a different city. For example, while traveling in Europe you can land at the Heathrow London and then travel most part of the continent by trains, ferries or buses and then fly from Rome or Athens heading towards Asia.
Last minute tips
While you start your journey you may want to keep a scanned copy of all your important documents like the passport or health card in your email, so that in case you lose them while traveling you can apply for them again with ease. Also, you need not be rigid to the timelines of stay at a particular place. If you could not visit the whole of Louvre museum in one day, do not mind extending your stay at Paris to explore it in full. You would not go on world tours every day.
