The 2022 event will allow savvy international travelers to compete by taking A Blind Date with the World—visiting ten secret destinations without any prior preparation—and then having them unravel a constant blitz of authentic, highly participatory and challenging culturally-oriented scavenges along the way. Earning points for things like: meditating with monks, training elephants, taking flamenco lessons, cooking specialty dishes with resident chefs, searching out Lost Cities, cracking sacred temple mysteries, joining in local celebrations, and learning languages enough to decipher scores of scavenger hunt clues. Trusting strangers in strange lands will be their focus as they circle the globe for three weeks. The annual event, that began in 2002, has visited 85 countries to date.

The title of The World’s Greatest TravelersÔ and winning a free trip around the world to defend their titles in 2023 is on the line, awaiting the travelers worthy enough to win the 16th edition of the world travel championship. The event begins April 22nd and ends on May 14th, 2022.

Event participation is open but limited. The $25,000 per team entry fee includes all international airfare, First Class hotel accommodations, 40% of meals, and special event travel gear. All travelers are interviewed for suitability, and single travelers are welcome to apply. For additional information please visit, or GreatEscape Adventures Inc., at +1.310.281.7809. (CST#2071053-40)
