What did we do? We circumnavigated this beautiful big blue ball for the same cost as being couch potatoes. “Trekking the Globe with Mostly Gentle Footsteps: Twelve Countries in Twelve Months” is about our encounters, from the enlightening to the bazaar and the lessons we learned along the way.
Embedded travel tips tell how you too can succeed in meeting a budget, while still adhering to our travel motto “we are not here to suffer”, and how to not let the 24/7 “togetherness” end in divorce. Plus a sharing of the most valuable lesson of all “expect the unexpected”.
Learn more about Trekking the Globe at www.globaltrekkers.ca and also check out the many other countries we have trekked through and the experiences that have “wowed” us – such as this year’s adventures in the oil-rich United Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, where excesses are astonishing; then the mysterious allure of Syria, the seaside rhythms of Jordan and Sinai coasts, the intensity of Israel, and our path through Technicolor Vietnam.
