Around The World

You may have read in this post that I'm participating in the 2015 Reading Challenge from Popsugar. However, I've gotten it in my crazy head that one challenge isn't enough, so I'll also be participating in Around The World 2015.

The challenge was created by All About Books. The general idea is that you keep track of all the places you visit through books. I love travelling but my student budget keeps me from visiting a lot of places. Hence, this is the perfect solution!

You can see my map below and on the right sight of my blog. 

The Rules:
  • There is no start and/or end date for when to join the challenge (latest date to enter a link is Dec 32th, 2015)
  • A book counts if you've read it in 2015 (= started AND finished in 2015), no matter when you joined the challenge
  • If characters travel to different places in the book, every place counts. 
  • One book can count for multiple mini challenges
The Mini-challenges:
These mini-challenges are optional! The main goal is just to have a map full of dots that are hopefully spread all over the world. Some of these mini-challenges are rather easy, others not so much. For some you can set your own goal of books you want to read.
  • Read one book for each continent
  • Read one book for each state in the US
  • Read one book for each ocean (the character travels across the ocean, no matter how)
  • The mountaineering challenge: climb the Seven Summits
  • Three Poles Challenge: visit North Pole, South Pole and Mount Everest
  • Visit a certain number of extreme points of Earth
  • Read a certain number of books set in capital cities 
  • Read a certain number of books set in at least 5 different places (e.g. road trip books)
  • Read a certain number of books that are set in two places from different continents
  • Read a certain number of books within a 100km/1.5 Mile radius of where you live
  • Visit a certain number of the most famous landmarks in the world
  • A to Z challenge: Find a place for each letter in the alphabet
  • Visit a certain number of countries.
  • Read books from authors from a certain number of different countries.
  • Read a certain number of books set in places you’ve visited yourself.
