Travel to 7 Continents: Insights into the Global Adventures
While I may not be the first woman to travel to 7 Continents and/or 196 countries, there aren't many of us. You may have heard of Lexie Alford, Cassie De Pecol, and Melissa Roy who have traveled to 7 Continents and 196 countries including Guinness World Records along some of their journeys.
Whether your dream is in traveling globally to 7 Continents or not, it takes a vision, faith, and action. By the time I was 2 years old, I had already traveled to 4+ countries. In 2017, I reached traveling to 27 countries ranging from India to countries in Central America like Costa Rica and everything in between including hosting global transformational retreats.
In 2014, I started to pray, envision and write down traveling to 7 Continents regularly. As I started transformation from the inside out step by step, I shifted how I created a life and business I love long before 2020 and the pandemic.
As the dream and reality got clearer and clearer, I thought I would do 7 Continents in 7 Months during 21-22. As 2020 continued on, I began to change my mind looking at the practical realities around me. In addition, with my lease coming up for renewal in January 2021, it provided me with an easy option to embrace location freedom as a digital nomad sooner than I thought.
I increased the focus and frequency of my leaps of faith in deciding to leave Atlanta, GA in 2020 for 2+ years to Travel to 7 Continents. Insights into my global adventures include 7 Continents, living abroad, and making money online and live globally.
7 Continents Travel
Some women who travel to 7 Continents and/or all 196 countries choose to do it for the experience, transformation, adventure, writing a book, a Guinness World Record, and/or all the above. I am choosing to do it for the experience, transformation, and writing a book.
I want women to see first hand whether it is in faith, wellness, marketing, business and/or travel, it is possible for you to create a life and business you love. My hope and prayer is you start to believe and see that you may lead a limitless life of wonder.
Is it easy? No.
Will it take transforming your mind, actions, and life? Yes.
is it worth it? HELL Yes.
My plan is not to experience the 7 Continents the fastest, or by a certain age. It is to experience the 7 Continents enjoying every minute, embracing the transformation, and the goal is within 2 years. Originally, I thought I would travel to 7 Continents in 7 Months. With leaving Atlanta, GA a year earlier than I thought in the middle of a pandemic, I thought why not extend it to 2+ years?
7 Continents Order
As of March 5, 2021)
My order for 7 Continents travel is
As always, this is subject to change based on spiritual and practical insights.
I am hosting live communities like Creator Camps and Months with global retreats along the way!
1 Central and South America
I chose to start my 7 Continents Travel with Central America due to my love of numerous countries, speaking Spanish, and the proximity to Atlanta, GA for travel and flights. In visiting Costa Rica in 2016 for our transformational retreats, I knew I wanted to travel to Costa Rica again.
To give you an idea, my living expenses are approximately half of what they were in Atlanta, GA.
Costa Rica Average Living Expenses
$600 1 month stay in La Fortuna, Costa Rica
$50 weekly average groceries & Herbalife Global Nutrition supplements
$50 weekly average adventures

$20 monthly mail services
$20 weekly average eating out

After Costa Rica:
My current travel plans include:
Guatemala March 22-May 2
Mexico May 2 - June 20
Belize June 20- July 4
Costa Rica July 4- September 30
Panama September 30-October 31
After exploring these parts of Central America, I will be headed to South America.
Colombia October 31-
The further out my travel the more hazy/unclear it is. For example, as of March 5, I have airfare and some stays booked for Guatemala. I have some ideas of potential media projects and stays for Guatemala and Mexico. I do have a confirmed media stay at a retreat center in Loma Partida, Panama near Bocos del Toros.
In addition, I have felt safe during all my travels. I typically do not travel at night unless returning from some type of activity with a group including being dropped off at my stay. Initially, I started reading the US Embassy advisories of countries.
However, I quickly realized how they focus on anything negative and do not highlight hardly any positives of any country leading me not to rely on them virtually at all other than a glance. I wonder if the US Embassy put together a guide on the states if they would include the same sort of focus on unemployment, unrest, and crime.
Antartica is the world's southernmost continent known for being the driest, coldest, windiest and iciest continent. The nearest countries are South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina.
The majority of excursions leave from Argentina and most commonly last 9-10 days. I may likely take an adventure from Argentina to Antartica.
Africa is known for Mount Kilamanjaro, Victoria Falls, Nile River, and game reserves. In 2002, I visited Egypt and the Nile River visiting the continent of Africa for the first time. I loved my time in Egypt with my mom including Hurghada, Valley of the Kings, Luxor, and a cruise along the Nile River. In 2013, I visited Tangier, Morocco on a day trip with my mom as well. I loved it all. I knew I would be back.
Currently, I plan on visiting some of the northern parts of Africa including Egypt again followed by southern countries.
Europe is home to a long history with castles, beaches, vineyards and cathedrals. It is known for its impact on the world with art, culture and architecture. The three most visited cities in years past include Paris, London and Rome.
If you didn't know, I am half Polish and half Bulgarian born in Poland to a Polish mom and Bulgarian father. I have a history of travel and experiences in Europe going back 40+ years! I have visited all three of the most visited cities in Europe several times. My mom and dad live in Bulgaria, and my brother and his family in Austria.
My plans in visiting Europe include meeting family, new places in Greece, Italy, Belgium and numerous other countries along the way! The last time I visited Europe was in December of 2019 for Christmas in Bulgaria with the family.
According to National Geographic, Asia is the largest and most populous continent, home to the largest (Russia) and most populous (China) nations. As the largest continent, Asia covers approximately 30 percent of the Earth's land area. Asia includes about 60 percent of the global population.
I have visited Asia before when I visited India in 2010. India is considered to be the second largest country in Asia both in terms of size and population. I visited the Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur with my mom, as well as my friend's Sundeep's wedding in Chandigarh.
My plans include visiting Russia, China, Singapore, Thailand, and Bali among other countries.
Australia is famous for its natural wonders, beaches, and deserts. Australia is one of the world's most highly urbanized countries as well with cities like Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.
Australia has been on my list for years for numerous reasons including the culture, land, and Great Barrier Reef. I have dreamed of diving in Australia for over a decade! If you didn't know, I love Koalas as well. I can't wait to see them up close and personal!
I plan on visiting New Zealand nearby as well (part of submerged continent Zealandia).
7 North America
Last, but definitely not least, is North America. Home for 40+ years, North America holds a special place in my heart for more reasons than one. It is the third largest in size, and fourth largest in population.
From living in Houston, Texas to 25+ years to Atlanta, GA for 10+ years, and travels in North America to California, Arizona, Florida, New York, and 35+ states, I have experienced a lot on this continent too!
My plans include visiting Alaska, Hawaii, and potentially any of the other 50 states I may not yet have experienced! As of now, my plans are to return to Atlanta, GA and set up our CREATEIT Centers in Lenox Mall in Buckhead, GA.
7 Continents Global Adventures
Circling the world with 7 Continents Global Adventures will undoubtedly transform me completely. I already feel like a whole new woman with my travels to Costa Rica. I may only imagine what will come with experiences and transformation to 7 Continents.
Have you thought about traveling globally as a woman, couple and/or family? People all around you and I are making their dreams a reality. I envision in the future doing it with my future love and family.
If you are dreaming of global travel, what actions could you take now?
Which continent would you visit first?
