Cartwheel the Globe
I was once asked the question, “If you could have one wish in the entire world, what would you wish for?”
I answered, “I would wish that every single person in the world laughs hysterically at least once a day.”
My name is Kara-Lisa Scott and I 'm producing a Youtube Travel Vlog called Cartwheel The Globe, about my attempt to be the first Australian to travel to every nation in the world.
In every country I organise one group or ‘flashmob' cartwheel, and attend one celebration. Cos well...parties are fun.
I aim to capture groups of people, from all over the world, coming together just for the sake of having a good time.
I'm all about learning to laugh at yourself and seeing the silly side of life.
I think sometimes we get too caught up in our jobs and our first world problems and forget to have fun. Life is too short to sit at a desk, staring at a computer for 8 hours a day. Unless you enjoy that of course and in that case, you go for it!
In the end it’s not about how much money you have in the bank it’s about how many stories you can tell. I refuse to wait until retirement to live my life, because I might never make it. I’m not going to waste my young years in a job I don’t love.
I might not be going to university like other people my age, but that doesn’t mean i’m unintelligent or that I have no direction in life. I have dreams and I have plans just like the rest.
My plan is to travel to every country in the world.
My dream is to own the best hostel in the world.
But first I need to do some pretty extensive research. Just like how lawyers, doctors and accountants have to study their field for years. I will study my field by staying in the best hostels this world has to offer and by interviewing the owners to find out how they got started and what they think the recipe for a successful hostel is.
It’s all very well to want to travel to every country in world. But it costs money. My first year of travel alone is budgeted at $22,000. I am campaigning to raise this money through Global Degree TV.

The video explains my itinerary for the first year and all the exciting festivals I’ll be attending.
Keep an eye out for me, because sometime soon I'll be in your country and I'll need some friends to cartwheel with!
