Tis’ the season to give. And what is the best holiday gift you can give a traveler? A trip of course. And an around the world travel adventure of a lifetime might just be the ultimate gift idea. Saving 10% ($2,500) now will make sure there is no re-gifting, day after returns or buyer’s remorse in the New Year.
Face it, finding that oh-so-perfect holiday gift for those overly adventurous travelers on your Christmas list is getting harder and harder. Loved ones want unique experiences—not more stuff.
Giving the 11th edition of the around-the-world travel adventure competition known as The Global Scavenger Hunt as a gift, will put any globe-trotter or armchair Amazing Race-wannabe into the Christmas spirit…and leave you in the holiday spirit by saving $2,500 until January 6, 2015!
A previous winner of The World’s Greatest Travelers title once likened the 23-day adventure to Christmas itself, saying: “It was like having three weeks’ worth of Christmas mornings because each and every day of the event we got up early and with great anticipation, knowing that we got to unwrap a new surprise and special gift!”
And what a gift it is: one that offers an authentic, challenging and participatory global travel adventure that encourages participants to trust strangers in strange lands all while completing excitingly unique culturally-oriented site-doing scavenges. Outside magazine bills the event as, “One of the most amazing trips in the world!” National Geographic says that the event is, “like Survivor, The Amazing Race and the Eco-Challenge all rolled into one except with much more cultural interaction.”
The 2014 champions, Zoe Littlepage, and her partner Rainey Booth, both from Houston, are poised to defend their titles in this world travel championship that has become life-changing for participants.
Life-changing because not only are travelers 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. And 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. Ten events have built ten schools in places like: Kenya, Ecuador, India and Sri Lanka.
The 23-day around the world event is limited to 15 teams of two, and the US$25,000 per team entry fee (10% off until January 6, 2015) 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. Please contact GreatEscape Adventures at 1.310.281.7809, or apply online at GlobalScavengerHunt.com.
