Around the World in 5 Years

I Want to Travel Around the World

Your midweek kick-in-the-pants here!  A 24 year-old kid from the UK just spent the last 5 years traveling to EVERY COUNTRY ON THE PLANET.  I am impressed/shamed by him.  When I was 24, I was in a dead-end job with a desk in the supply closet, flirting with men who were entirely too old for me, and frequently missing my rent payments.

But not this guy!  Over the course of 5 years, James Asquith traveled to 196 countries, taking odd jobs here and there to cover the costs of travel.  What does it cost to visit every country in the world?  By his count, nearly $203,000.  How on earth he saved that from part-time jobs?  I’m guessing he was a gigolo.  What’s he doing now?  He’s a banker.  Duh.

Check out some photos from his travels below and more at the full article here!

I am totally inspired by his stories – notsomuch by his haircut.
