Welcome all to the most extraordinary three week event on the planet!
Good Afternoon all -
Just two days away from the start of the 9th annual around the world travel adventure competition known as The Global Scavenger Hunt that crowns The World's Greatest Travelers.
The question was posed this morning on Huff Post in a fun (maybe too historic) piece by your's truly, asking the question: Who are The World's Greatest Travelers?
Morning...one week to go!
I have to start getting in the blogging groove, so I guess today is as good as any day. I don't seem to have anything else to do...
Here is a creed already shared with our travelers personally that was repackaged for Huffington Post today.
And here arre a few photos from years gone by...and my how time flies!
We at The Global Scavenger Hunt get some great travel-related companies coming our way each year. We don't take our relationships litely and want to especially welcome Travelpro, who this year supplied all our travelers with some great travel gear for them to use (and abuse) on this year's travel adventure.
Welcome aboard Travelpro. And thank you!
Adventure Travel: Love Amazing Race? Try the Global Scavenger Hunt
Dreaming of a place on The Amazing Race? You can try a worldwide scavenger trip instead.
A few weekends ago I spoke at the Bay Area Travel & Adventure Show. They had an A-List of interesting travel speakers including Rick Steves, Patricia Schultz of "1,000 Places to See Before You Die" fame, and Brat Pack-era actor-cum-traveler Andrew McCarthy.
Becasue we sure are excited!
The Teams have been selected and assembled. And what an international group we have for 2013...we have travelers using seven different passports and that makes for an interesting and exciting international travel adventure competition.
The course has been set up and our travelers will be conducting highly participatory site-doing culturally-oriented scavenges in 11 countries...but of course we're not telling which eleven! Hence A Blind Date with the World!
Happy New Year y'all!
We still have a few spots open for our little annual around the world travel adventure...any Bucket List'sor New Year's resolutions need completing?
