It’s can seem like a daunting task – planning a Round the World journey. Though when Star Alliance and Marriott International recently asked us to put together our dream itinerary, we were amazed at how easy it was to customize a trip!
We are extremely excited to announce that we have been invited to embark on a Round The World journey this summer with Star Alliance member airlines and Marriott International. Think 11 countries over 6 continents, 13 flights, 35,000 miles, one airline alliance!
We are one of 7 International Travel Bloggers Star Alliance has invited to embark on a set of Round The World journeys (they have recently added themed itineraries to their site meaning instead of having to create a journey from scratch, you can now choose from various themes and a proposed routing will be offered).
As Mike and I are traveling as a couple, we have used the Star Alliance Book & Fly tool to customize an itinerary that speaks to the romantic adventurer. Check out the trip & let us know in the comments if you have any tips – what should we not miss?!
There is nothing more romantic than traveling to exotic locations with your significant other – though for couples like us who enjoy off-the-beaten-path experiences and adrenaline activities, we have given our next adventure romantic itinerary an adventurous spin.
The perfect balance of romance and adventure, this itinerary includes the thrill of cage diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa, swimming with Whale Sharks and exploring ancient civilizations in Cancun. We look forward to strolling the canals of Venice hand in hand, and getting lost in the exotic tastes of Istanbul. Imagine a three-day jungle adventure tracking exotic wildlife in Panama, and then passionately dancing the tango in the streets of Buenos Aires. Other destinations on the list include Singapore, Vienna, Barcelona, Auckland and Sydney.
We Have Now Returned
