The Most Ridiculous Around-the-World Adventure Can Be Yours — For a Very Hefty $1.2 Million
Jules Verne took readers around the world in 80 days, but you really need more time to savor the sites.
Let’s hope you’ve already made your fortune and don’t need to clock in at the office because the trip takes two years and will set you back $1.2 million.
This trip may sound like a dream come true for fans of ‘The Amazing Race’ and in some ways it is, albeit without the traveling quickly from one destination to the next part.
If you sign up, you’ll be whisked away to more than 960 sites named as culturally and naturally relevant by the World Heritage Committee, including the Grand Canyon, the Acropolis, the Tower of London and Machu Picchu, to name a few.
And don’t think for a second that you’ll have to rough it in hostels or on some dude’s hut floor. No, you’ll live it put up in five-star style at hotels like the Taj Mahal, the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow and Hotel George V in Paris.
Here’s hoping that if you book it, you remember to ask your neighbors to get your mail. Of course, by the time you get back the postal service might very well be a distant memory.
