RTW where do I start

Travel Forums Round the World Travel RTW where do I start

I am interested in traveling around the world. I have one year to spend but not a lot of money. I have done no world travel before so i want to hit all the popular places and get a full flavor of each continent. Can one drive around the world, shipping the car as needed? what about a motor home and visa's. Where do I start?

i dont know about taking the car, but if you dont have much money it is going to cost you a small fortune in petrol to drive around the world ...

i have been looking at round the world air tickets, they start from around £700 and you have 12 months to use it. Take a look:

I suppose once you make it to each continent you can move around until you are ready to move to the next?

Hope this helps!

Hi Rod

Get some travel brochures from a travel agent for each continent you are interested in. This will give you an idea of what's popular. You don't have to join the advertised tours. Just fly into the major city. Other travellers along the way should be able to point you in the right direction from there.

One year wouldn't be long enough for me, but good luck anyhow !!!

Shipping a car would be extremely expensive. You can buy around the world plane tickets where you can go five or so destinations around the world. They typically cost about $1500 USD but will get you to the major spots. Here's a site for a few strategies:
