The 2016 world travel championship event had a leveling playing field with the 2015 reigning holders of The World’s Greatest Travelers™ crown (The Sydney Sisters), unable to compete in defending their title.
The event started in Mexico City with 22 travelers meeting for the first time:
Then they were off…into the world’s second largest metropolis full of history, culture and food
…good and evil wrestlers.
Then we were off to Tokyo, Japan–the world’s largest city!
And cherry blossom time…
The famous morning fish market that is Tsukiji Shijō
And relaxing at traditional hot springs.
and looking for odd scavenges.
Then a quick stop in Singapore (…and Malaysia and Indonesia too!)
late night Singapore Slings…
and camels to ride…
and souks to scour.
…and The Baltics.
…with a little side trip to St Petersburg, Russia!
Then…the last day in Washington D.C.
A quick visit to the White House to met Bo and Sunny!
