Around the World Trip - An Alphabetical, Poetical, Photographical Adventure
Nov 08, 2013 by Paul Fowler
As many an avid traveler before her,
Sarah alighted an airplane to Andorra,
Her backpack brimming with her life for a year,
for Bosnia she was bound,
After a crisp Croatian beer.
A delayed flight from Denmark lost her a day,
But eventually she entered England and, on her way,
Flew to Finland (the lowest fare for the flight),
And got to gaze at a German airport,
If just for the night.
She had her share of hops, it was time to make haste,
Holland was, happily, exactly to her taste.
Her incredible itinerary didn't finish there,
Next were Iceland's icecaps,
Then inevitably into the air.

Justifiably she felt jaded but her journey went on,
Jordan was up,
Marrakesh made her miss Morocco when she left,
But next on her list was Nigeria,
So no time for a rest.
She got ill in Oman (it's outrageously hot),
She'd planned to go to Pakistan but could not.
A visit to Qatar didn't quite quench her thirst,
But rested her right for Russia,
Where she drank vodka 'til she burst.
Though she spent Saturday and Sunday in the snow,
San Andres was the next place to go,
Then Trinidad and Tobago and, after this,
Uruguay was up,
After Venezuela (she couldn't resist).

And then, like all world wanderers, she had to go home,
She'd walked thousands of miles and now to Wales, alone.
Xīnjiāpō and Thailand she couldn't afford,
Just like Yemen,
Zimbabwe and so many more.
Next time, Sarah. Next time.
Phew! We hope you enjoyed Sarah's around the world trip. Where on the list have you been?
