Project World Tour - A Journey To Roots Through Routes

Amanda was feeling damn nostalgic today. It has been 13 years since she walked on the route to her alma mater. She could actually see a calico of her images, toying with her friends in bits and pieces, across that route. A short journey via that route rewinded her school-memories as if those were playing on a bioscope or something.

Was it with Amanda only? Or do we all share a special connection with routes? How many times have you seen yourself walking on those roads that were your inextricable companions to several destinations that you’d set from time-to-time? In fact, even if you replay your good old college days, a major part of the nostalgic drive will inadvertently cast the routes you trod with your friends.

That’s how our memories are essentially wired. We could still connect with the route we took when we went to the school for the first time. We could still live over the excitement when our bulging bags leaned out to pave the way for light trendy bags, and school uniform transformed into fashionable attires and cool accessories in college. That nervous yet ambitious walk to the office. A surreal walk with the first date on a beach or some other romantic spot. Believe it or not, you have pictures of all these, and many more life-changing routes deeply ingrained in your sub-conscious.

In Project World Tour, we have endeavored to weave those all important routes, and several others, into a series of knowledge sharing postings across multitude of platforms. The aim here is to build a community of and for travelers where they go beyond sharing about places. Instead, the community will further magnify their sharing by talking about different routes that run through as veins in any city.

Not just that, contribution in the Project World Tour can fetch you some exciting takeaways that you can show off on your friends. We are on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus, YouTube, and all the popular platforms. Just enter #ProjectWorldTour in the search boxes of your favorite social media site and join the league of the extraordinary travelers waiting for like-minded people like YOU.

Project World Tour - Bring Out the Sindbad in You

“Columbus”, “Captain Cook”, “Vasco Da Gama”! Now what’s the first thing that crashed into your mind for that fraction of a second when you were reading these names. Perhaps, pictures of stout European men clad in metal buttoned sailor suits, wearing the American dixie cups or the French “Bachi” bonnets on their heads. Apart from the attire, the thought that goes perfectly moussed up with their names is the very thrill of exploration and adventure these iconic voyagers must have enjoyed. Sailing and beating those soaring ripples to a destination unknown, that’s what traveling and exploration is all about. Rest is just a pleasure-seeking exercise to say the least.

We always wish to feel that thrill of unraveling something not very known to the world, at least to our neighbors and friends. We do show off our serendipitous explorations to our friends, and never miss a chance to tell them that how mediocre their trip to that place was just because they couldn’t find the place you somehow managed to discover. Having said that, some of us do have that honest urge to see what the world has to dish up. Curiosity to know the very planet they inhabit is what actually drives these souls. And then there’s a whole class of travel aficionados who simply live for traveling and wouldn’t mind crossing an ocean to know about an obscure and remote island somewhere.

Whatever may be the reason, owing to the very restless nature of human beings, we simply can’t stay glued to one place for long. Every third weekend we call friends, we chalk out plans to hit the not-so-far destinations, and then immolate those with lethargy, or sometimes with time and resources constraints we suffer on and off.

Just to save those plans from random butchering with giving due respect to your lethargy and the sheer willingness to achieve everything while sitting on a bean-bag, we announce the launch of Project World Tour”. This ambitious project is a part of RouteIt, a distinguished travel app, which houses the world’s choicest routes for you to dig into. Under this aspirational project, we’ll take you to different places while you’re logged into your favorite social network, be it Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Google Plus.

The aim of the Project World Tour is to make you aware of the places you always wanted to be at, and that too in an engaging way, giving you a feeling closer to the real world dynamism. In addition to virtual traveling, the Project also aims at building a community of like-minded travelers to instill an environment conducive for sharing. There will be contests and quizzes, rewards and awards, and lot more up for the grab.

So all fellow travelers, join the Project World Tour and discover the world in a way you might have never done before.
