Round the World Trips

One great way of seeing the world is with a round the world ticket. These allow several stops on the way and are fairly flexible with dates. Some have open legs - so you might fly into Bangkok but out of Singapore, allowing you to travel some sections by land under your own means.

A typical itinery might include a couple of months in Thailand and the surrounding countries, a little while working in Australia (if allowed), a quick visit to New Zealand before heading to San Francisco and an overland journey to New York before flying back to London.

Of course you can start anywhere and add any destination you like - just remember that if you are crossing the equator then the seasons are reversed, so you could be heading from summer in New Zealand to winter in North America - and you'll need to take all your equipment with you all the way!
