No Baggage Challenge: The Route
August 14, 2010 by Justin Glow
Starting and ending in New York City, Rolf will travel through 12 countries in 42 days. He’ll make nearly 10 flights (spending over 50 hours in the air), ride countless trains and buses, and maybe even a boat or two. All with no luggage.
From New York, the first stop is London before taking a train to Paris. Then it’s off to Spain, where he’ll see the sights of Madrid and head off to Gibraltar for a ferry to Morocco. Next up it’s Egypt, and then South Africa for a safari. Another long flight to Bangkok before making his way through Thailand, Malaysia, and on to Singapore overland. New Zealand is next, with a quick stop off in Australia, and then it’s back to the United States for a cross-country jaunt back to New York City.
