A 2014 travel adventure competition is set to finally allow travelers to test their travel savvy and compete with other great travelers mano-a-mano for “The World’s Greatest Traveler™” trophy and a free trip around the world.
One former participant calls it “The Amazing Race for regular people.”
The 10th annual Global Scavenger Hunt travel adventure competition aims to return the romance of travel while testing the travel IQ of the most travel savvy of globetrotters pitting them against each other in an around the world contest. The event will have travelers visiting ten secret destinations (no guidebooks or online research possible), overcoming language and cultural barriers, and logistic challenges, all while completing a series of highly participatory, authentic and challenging site-doing scavenges over a 23-day circumnavigation beginning April 11, 2014. Trusting strangers in strange lands is not just recommended—it is required!
“The Global Scavenger Hunt covers a lot of extraordinary travel bases,” says author and Event Director William Chalmers, “Taking our blind date with the world is a 21st-century version of spinning a globe and throwing out your finger and competition is fierce. Maybe that’s why we’ve been called the ‘Super Bowl of Travel,’ the ‘Olympics of Travel’’, and one scribe called our adventure the ‘Magical Mystery Tour’. I liked that one!”
The winners of this annual travel adventure (aka the Olympics of Travel), will be crowned The World’s Greatest Travelers™. Last year’s father-son team from Canada will be defending their title against Indiana Jones-types already signed up from United States, New Zealand, Australia, Germany and Canada. And all you have to do to unseat them is to circle the globe while outdoing, out-thrilling and out-traveling a fine collection of international travelers. Interested travelers need to apply online at GlobalScavengerHunt.com.
The event begins April 11th on the West Coast and ends May 3rd on the East Coast. The 23-days in between will be filled with nonstop global activities—a decathlon of travel events.
Outside magazine calls the annual travel adventure competition The Global Scavenger Hunt, “One of the 50 Most Amazing Trips in the World,” travel guru Peter Greenberg says that, “Unlike The Amazing Race, this challenge is more about your ability to connect with cultures…,” while NationalGeographic.com says the travel competition is, “like Survivor, the Amazing Race and the Eco-Challenge all rolled into one except with much more cultural interaction.”
The event is limited to 15-two person teams, and the $10,900 per person entry fee includes: all international airfare, first class hotels, 40% of meals, along with special event swag. All travelers will be interviewed for suitability and single travelers are welcome to apply.
