Who Are the RTW Guys?

We’re Michael and Halef – the Round The World Guys! Like you, we just love to travel! To date, we’ve been to over 40 countries each and our goal is to see every one of them – or at least get close. So, we’re planning a Round the World trip. This blog is about the travels we’ve done and how we’re planning our big adventure. It will eventually become the log of what we hope will be a long, rewarding journey. Hopefully, you’ll find some of the information useful.
