His Travel Journey is a good read.
I'm just not sure if that would be considered traveling.

I think if he would have tried to stay one day at the different stops, and still try to stay under £1000 it would have been more interesting.

"Travel around the world (literally) for £1000, experience London, Bermuda, New York, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Melborne, Darwin, Singapore and Hong Kong."

And then in really, really small print...you will sleep on the plane, the airport will be your bathroom.

For people that don't have a problem sleeping on a plane, this would actually not be too bad. Personally, i have no problem sleeping on buses or planes.

Anyone who RTW's in 8 days has a kangaroo loose in the top paddock.
I found the route, airlines and costs intriguing (I imagine Bermuda is quite nice this time of year).
Buying an RTW from here in OZ is pretty expensive.

Definitely, your starting place makes a difference. All the Specials Airtreks has start in New York or Los Angeles. If i add the leg from Tampa or Miami the price goes way up.
