Method

I used Google flights to find my flights around the world. It was honestly a lot more difficult than I thought it was going to be. The reason that I used Google flights is it is extremely organized and is easy to keep your travel dates in order.

Influence of Travel Dates, Places Visited

Obviously, the best time to fly is midweek. I initially flew to China because that was the cheapest way to get across the world. From China I went to Sydney, Australia because that was extremely cheap. From Australia I went to India because that was a required place that we had to stop. From India I flew to Sudan because that was an extremely cheap place to fly to in Africa. From Africa I flew to Paris because that was the cheapest airport in Europe. From Paris I flew to Caracas, Venezuela. I was in-between Venezuela and Colombia but Venezuela was cheaper. From Caracas I flew to the United States, specifically Miami.

By Air and Bus

I found a bus ticket to Los Angeles for $402. That was honestly more expensive than I thought.

An Idiot Abroad

Comment on two episodes of this series: 1) In the Great Wall episode, the main character talks about a toad in a well. What is the point of this story? 2) Comment on some of the lodging presented to the main character in his trip to India.
