126 Days Around The World Without Flying – Itinerary Suggestion

Around The World Without Flying

Around The World Without Flying Earth is a big place and suggesting a route to travel around the world is almost impossible. Each traveler will yearn for different places and experiences. Budget, time, and means of transportation, all these variables will impact the plan. Considering that planning an itinerary with only flights is simple, I decided to design a overland trip around the world without flying, going around the world to the west, departing from France.

So there is always up to date information about which boats have last minute available places. On this page I give you personal insights on how to get a…

To easily distinguish the geography between the South Pole and the North Pole, is simple: The North Pole is water surrounded by continents, while the South Pole is a continent surrounded by water. I traveled the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands during 15 days, leaving the Argentine city of Ushuaia across the Drake Passage, down to 68°11 S 67°00 W in Stonington Island, beyond the Antarctic Circle.
