Round the world itinerary

Every day I stare at my phone for 1 hour searching for new gems, fancy restaurants on Tripadvisor (not a good idea at night), Hostels, Airbnbs, Couchsurfing. It’s strange. You’re counting every day, you can’t fall asleep because your so pumped in a thrill of anticipation but the planning phase for something like that is great!

My trip will start in Israel, on July. I’m a solo traveler and I don’t mind to sleep in a hostel aside other people, surely the best way to meet other traveler and have fun as well. But I’m not at all a budget traveler. I’m a mix of different travel types. I like to spend less in things that I don’t need luxury but on the other side I want to enjoy the whole trip at the fullest. Absolve the Padi Open Water Diver? I want to do that. Skydiving? Oh gosh, Yes!!!! Just got goose pimples writing about that. Really, worrying about every cent isn’t worth it. When it ends, my trip ends too. Simple as that.

So, I’m sure you’re looking for some ideas for your own itinerary. Here is my round-the-world itinerary for at least 1.5 years.


Middle East:

Israel – Jordan – UAE – Oman – Iran

South Asia:

India – Sri Lanka – Maldives

East and Southeast Asia:

Cambodia – Laos – Vietnam – Indonesia – Taipeh – China (Shanghai, Great wall, Peking, Huangzhou, Hunan, Guilin) – Philippines – Singapore – Malaysia – Myanmar – Palau – Thailand


Australia – New Zealand – Tahiti – Bora Bora – Cook Islands – Vanatu

North America:

Hawaii – Las Vegas – San Antonio – Miami


Central America:

Mexico – Cuba – Belize – Nicaragua – Costa Rica – Panama

South America:

Chile – Argentina – Paraguay – Peru – Uruguay – Brasil – Colombia – Easter Island


Yes, what about Africa? It isn’t on my plane right now. Maybe you are in the same dilemma. A friend of mine if pushing for Africa. I’m sure there are beautiful places , but I’ve planned the trip for 1.5 year, this is a long time but there are so many beautiful places that I want to visit, as you can see above. So, Africa is just on my watchlist for the moment.

Hope that this list brings you some fresh ideas if you are planning a round-the-world trip.

  1. Hey there! Just a little question: Do you really want to visit so many different countries in just 18 months? I just made a world trip and I always spent one whole month in one country. Sometimes less would have been enough sometimes a month wasn’t enough at all. It’s hard to get in touch with the spirit, the culture, the vibes and especially the people of a place if you’re always in a hurry to get to the next place, to see the next thing.
    I don’t want to tell you how to plan your trip, you surely know what you want but perhaps it’s worth taking into consideration to have more time in every country you visit eventhough it means to visit less countries…

    1. Hi Joachim. Thank you very much for your comment. I hope you had a great time. The itinerary itself is more a “I would like to” list and not a final route, I don’t want to hurry from a place to the other, I like to explore a place. Not only be there for 2 days, getting a photo and hurry to the other place. Maybe I have to travel for more than 18 months for my itinerary 🙂
