Destination unknown: Take a blind date with the world
“Sometimes people take adventures, but in this case, this adventure takes the people,” says William D. Chalmers, author and Event Director of The Global Scavenger Hunt.
The Global Scavenger Hunt is set to take just fifteen two-person teams around the world visiting at least 10 countries over the annual three-week adventure that begins April 14, 2017.
The event brings back the magic of travel and is all about letting travelers be creative, resourceful and enjoy the serendipity of the moment. It is about participants using their savvy and Travel IQ to complete a series of engaging and highly-participatory site-doing scavenges in competition with other great global travelers, all vying for ‘The World’s Greatest Travelers’ trophy-and a FREE trip around the world.
The 2016 champions, Zoe Littlepage, and her partner Rainey Booth, both from Houston, are poised to defend their titles in this world travel championship event that is life-changing for those participating.
Life-changing because not only are participants given the opportunity to live out their Indiana Jones and Amazing Race fantasies while circumnavigating the globe in one trip, but they will also be given numerous chances to do good with half-day volunteering opportunities; as the event also serves as a platform to raise funds for interest-free micro loans and the building of remote co-ed elementary schools in places of need. Previous events have built ten schools in places like: Kenya, Ecuador and India.
The 23-day around the world event is limited to 15 teams of two, and the US$25,000 per team entry fee includes: all international airfare, first class hotels, 40% of meals and special event-sponsored travel gear. Single travelers are welcome to apply and all travelers will be interviewed for suitability.
