Around The World Itinerary (150 countries in 6 years)


At the Calauit Game Reserve in Palawan. Next, African Safari!
Finally, I was able to start drafting my itinerary for an around-the-world travel. I don't know when this will happen, but I am confident it will. The universe will provide.

This is the first draft, and most probably the last. This is the way I travel, I just identify the places I want to go to, sequence them with the only consideration being the availability of border crossings, have target dates for every place and just take it from  there. The key word is flexibility.


Total Number of countries: 150
Total Travel Days: Six (6) Years



It will be divided into 6 legs, summarized as follows:
Leg 1 - South, Central and North America (316 days)
Leg 2 - East and North Asia; and Europe (373 days)
Leg 3 - Africa (363 days)
Leg 4 - Middle East and South Asia (334 days)
Leg 5 - Southeast Asia, Oceania and Pacific Islands (384 days)
Leg 6 - Philippines (420 days)

If you will notice, there are less countries to visit in SEA but I will be staying more days there than any other leg. Specifically, the longest on this trip is 60 days in Thailand where I plan to write a book, and followed by Brazil which would have been longer if not for the fact that I already spent more than a month there (as part of a 60 day, 5 country backpack trip across South America).

But the dates are really just targets. As what happened in my SEA Backpack trip (45 days), where I spent more days than planned in Siem Reap which meant less days in Saigon after. No pressure that way. You like the place? Stay one more day. Hate the place? Leave the next day.


The last part is more than a year to explore our own country. I will start in Mindanao and end in Batanes. My friends would know why :) And my friends would know too why I would start this trip in Ecuador (US is just a stop over).


Here are the countries I intend to visit.
