Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 7 October 2009

9 April to 1 May 2010 are the dates for the 6th edition of The Global Scavenger Hunt, a real-life international travel adventure competition that circles the globe over three-weeks.

The Global Scavenger Hunt event is designed to test adventurers travel IQ, those well-honed travel skills that serious international competitors bring to the event; like how to overcome: language barriers, cultural differences, logistic challenges, team dynamics, the heat of competition, and three weeks worth of real-world creative problem solving, while traveling to at least 10 countries performing exciting and authentic cultural scavenges.

The travel competition is now accepting applications for a limited number of 25-two person team slots still available for the 2010 event.

Our event has always been about restoring the magic of travel; the celebration of different people and places, said William Chalmers, the Event Director, author and philanthropist, Our travelers seek out the unusual without fear. They actively participate in sight-doing, not just sight-seeing. They embrace cultural differences without embarrassment. They marvel at natural wonders, partake in exotic festivals, and relish different cuisines. Travel is about bringing us together despite our differences. The Global Scavenger Hunt serves as a catalyst for those connections that continue to make travel special. I am pleased to say without a doubt that participating in our travel adventure is enriching, exciting, authentic, challenging, and for many, life-changing!

Past scavenges include: taking an elephant safari in search of Bengal tigers in Rajasthan; learning the Cyrillic alphabet over a pint of beer with a new friend in Bulgaria; donating a morning working at an orphanage in Cambodia, or a Tibetan refugee camp in Nepal; finding the Tunisian coliseum where Gladiator was filmed while watching a Saharan sunset; learning how to make baklava in a Turkish bakery; or bluffing their way into a world famous film festival.

Teams will not only visit 10 countries over 23-days, but also collectively traveling more than one million kilometers to help raise funds toward a $1 million goal for ongoing global charitable efforts that include micro-loans supporting entrepreneurial women, and the continued building of co-ed elementary schools in developing nations such as: Kenya, Niger, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone, and Ecuador, among others.

The event is limited to 25-two person teams, and the $9,900 per person entry fee (about $400 a day) includes: all international airfare, first class hotels, 40% of meals, along with special event gear. All travelers will be interviewed for suitability and single travelers can also apply.
