It’s snowed 2ft in the last two days here in Colorado
I took a two hour long hike through a nearby state park (where I saw the very cold looking ducks) and I thought a lot about whether or not I want to do a true round the world trip or if I want to do it in legs buying one-way tickets as a go. I’ve made a preliminary pro’s and con’s list.
Pro’s RTW Ticket
Pro’s One Way Tickets
I like the romance of going in one direction until I end up in the same place
All total would be cheaper for the same amount of travel.
Once I buy the ticket it’s definite I’m going
I wouldn’t come back to the USA between any locations
More freedom, can make snap decisions
Step-Father works for American Airlines and I can stand-by for some flights out of the USA
Most travel books/blogs I’ve read recommend this style
I could come back to the USA between some locations
Con’s RTW Ticket
Cons’s One Way Tickets
You have to fix your itinerary ahead of time. Changing dates is expensive
It would be nice to visit the family
All total will probably more expensive
Right now I’m leaning towards winging it and going with the one way tickets. More Freedom. What do you think?
