About us

203 Travel Challenges is an independent travel media with a focus on traveling as a personal development tool.

The 203 Travel Challenges project has one major aim: to make you do at least one thing you’ve never done before – and you’ll never be able to stop expanding your world. Our mission is to supply you with ideas and inspiration – from the most amazing once-in-a-lifetime experiences around the world to seemingly obvious everyday activities spiced up by challenges. Start with our pocket challenge book “203 Travel Challenges”.

Bobby has nothing to do with this website but we still keep him because of his drinking abilities (sometimes we use his qualities to win bets in bars). He is a true discoverer. Years ago, he discovered that he could book his own air tickets and we haven’t seen him ever since. In fact, you can’t see him either. Maybe he’s just next to you right now.
