Do Travelers Take Trips or Do Trips Take Travelers?

23-day Global Adventure takes Travelers 
On a Blind Date with the World

Traveling is not as adventurous as it once was. Been There. Done that. What’s next?

The Global Scavenger Hunt asks the provocative question: When was the last time you did something for the first time?

This annual travel adventure adds a new twist to the world of travel by taking thrill-seekers out of their comfort zones by taking them on “A Blind Date with the World” to ten secret countries scattered around the globe over 23-days next Spring. Think about it: You know when you will be traveling around the world, but you won’t know where you will be traveling to!

The Global Scavenger Hunt, is set to take fifteen two-person teams around-the-world visiting at least ten countries over three-weeks between April 14 and May 6, 2017. The world travel championship’s philosophy is that anyone can get to a place—to be somewhere—but having travelers figure things out once they get there—Wherever there is?—is the ultimate adventure.

“We maintain people don’t take adventures, that adventures take people. And the best ones take them out of their comfort zones,” chuckles William D. Chalmers the Event Director. “Having visited over 70 countries in 12 years, we are advocates of creative tourism—always looking to bring back the magic of travel by letting our travelers be creative, resourceful and enjoy the serendipity of travel.”

The Global Scavenger Hunt travel adventure is all about travelers using their Travel IQ to complete a series of authentic, challenging and highly-participatory site-doing scavenges (micro-adventures) in a competition against other great travelers, all vying for The World’s Greatest Travelers trophy—and a FREE trip around the world. The world travel championship event is life-changing for participants.

Life-changing because not only are participants given the opportunity to live out their Indiana Jones and Amazing Race fantasies while circumnavigating the globe to secret places, but they will also be given numerous breaks to do good in the world with half-day volunteering opportunities. The event also serves as a platform to raise funds to build co-ed elementary schools in places of need.

Conde Nast Traveler calls it, “The best trip to take….” Outside magazine bills it as, “One of the most amazing trips in the world!National Geographic says that, “Like Survivor, the Amazing Race…all rolled into one except with much more cultural interaction.”

The 23-day international event is limited to 15 teams of two; with the US$25,000 per team entry fee including: all international airfare, first class hotels, 40% of meals and special event-sponsored travel gear. Single travelers are welcome to apply with all travelers interviewed for suitability. Please contact GreatEscape Adventures at 1.310.281.7809, or apply online at GlobalScavengerHunt.com.
