Are You the World’s Greatest Traveler?

  Do you have what it takes to become the World’s Greatest Traveler?



Every traveler you meet seems to think that they have traversed more miles than any other, weathered more storms, trekked through more airport lounges, hotels rooms, et cetera, et cetera. But who’s really to say? What’s the proper measurement to determine the fittest traveler? I mean, the debate can just go on and on, right?

One competition is seeking to end this debate. Every year, the Global Scavenger Hunt puts 15 teams of two, pitting them against each other in an around-the-world travel contest. During this 23-day competition, participants are tested on their various travel-related skills, in ten select countries across the world.

In addition to the fierce globe-trotting competition, participants also are able to participate in various volunteer projects during their trips. These events have led to the building of ten co-ed elementary school in countries such as Kenya, India and Sri Lanka.

Now, while travel merit is assessed, there is a fee of $12,500 to compete in this challenge, an amount which covers international airfare, first class hotels, some meals and travel gear. But hey, that’s a small price to pay for a trophy and the title of “The World’s Greatest Traveler,” not to mention bragging rights as well. Winners will also earn a free trip to compete next year—because, sadly, the title is not absolute and will be up for grabs again next year!
