$50,000 for winners of World Travel Championship

The 15th annual world travel championship, known as The Global Scavenger Hunt, is set to take place over 23-days between April 12 and May 4, 2019.

UNITED STATES – SANTA ROSA, USA – A $50,000 winner-take-all cash prize awaits the first-place team in the 2019 edition of the world travel championship.

The 15th annual world travel championship, known as The Global Scavenger Hunt, set to take place over 23-days between April 12 and May 4, 2019, is now accepting applications for entry. Eager Indiana Jones-types of adventurers and curious travelers wanting to test their travel IQ against other travelers in an extraordinary around-the-world travel adventure competition that crowns The World's Greatest Travelers, can apply at 

"Prize money provides inspiration," says Event Director William Chalmers, "We want the best international travelers to participate. The 2019 event will find out if travel writers and bloggers know the world as well as they claim to; whether social media influencers and travel agents know anything about travel; and whether some of the world's 'most traveled people' and Amazing Race wannabe's actually have any real-world travel skills. Participating, and winning our $50,000 winner-take-all prize, will be the ultimate proof."

The 2019 event will pit savvy international travelers against each other by taking them on A Blind Date with the World, visiting ten secret destinations without any prior preparation, and then have them unravel a constant blitz of highly authentic, participatory and challenging culturally-oriented scavenges along the way, like: meditating with monks, training elephants, taking flamenco lessons, cooking local dishes with local chefs, searching out Lost Cities, cracking sacred temple mysteries, joining in local celebrations, and learning local languages enough to decipher their scavenger hunt clues. Trusting strangers in strange lands will be their focus as they circle the globe for three weeks. 

The $50,000 first place prize and the title of The World's Greatest Travelers await the travelers worthy enough to win the 2019 world travel championship.
