Europe travel_237249682 A mystery, zigzagging itinerary This is an Amazing Race™ styled travel competition for normal people with a mysterious zigzagging itinerary that will take you to medieval towns, coastal enclaves, iconic cities and mountain hamlets. Challenges and daily destinations are announced with 12 hours’ notice, to keep you on your toes and in suspense. Every single new trip has a new custom itinerary. Paris_150496133 Sight-doing, not sightseeing The hands-on challenges may push you to strive to be your “best” or maybe it could be about being the “least worst”. One challenge could be cultural, and the next could find you dealing with myths and legends. Next you could be lost in a labyrinth or on an alpine coaster. The competition is about sight-doing not sightseeing, and anything can happen. You need to let go of the desire to control and dive into these amazing experiences. Camaraderie and bonding An important part of this super experience is the way you will build camaraderie with your team and competitors. Some parts of the competition mean that you’ll be paired up with other teams, as well as deepening bonds with your own team. Many long-lasting friendships are built during this fun and engaging travel competition. Travel friends Unique, non-replicable experiences Competitours, the company who organise it all, pull out all the stops to arrange challenges and experiences that you couldn’t possibly put together by yourself, however hard you tried. Steve Belkin, the company president, tells us that it has taken him an awful lot of negotiation and convincing to get the agreement of some of the places and establishments involved. This is definitely the adventure of a lifetime. European trip this Summer If you are looking for travel that will push your boundaries, build your strengths and your bonds, if it is the thrill of the unknown that you are searching for, then the next trip in Europe is 25th June to 5th July 2016. Meet your other race-mates at a to-be-disclosed European city at 12 noon on the starting day. Berlin Who can play this travel competition? Basically, anyone can play. Past team profiles have included people aged from 11 to 74, sometimes different generations from the same family. Of course plenty of friends and couples also play. It is not about your fitness level or speed, or even your previous travel experiences. It is about being spontaneous, resourceful and creative. It is about having fun and experiences that you could have never previously imagined, and making memories to last you a lifetime.
