Want to Travel the world? Win the Lottery!
[Partner Content] 21 DEC 2016

If you won an insanely large amount of money, what would you do with it?

You could of course buy everything that you’ve ever wanted, the usual staples like the super big house and all those fancy cars you’ve ever drooled over. Maybe you would rather try to improve your social standing by throwing massively extravagant parties and in the process basically buy a whole lot of new, well-heeled/networked friends. Or perhaps becoming an angel investor to make even more money is your thing, or maybe you prefer the idea of a more philanthropic approach to spending your money in service of others.

And then of course there are those that would use their winnings to travel.

Matt Myles (who certainly has been involved in more than a few interesting stories since winning the £1 million prize on Euromillons in 2014) used quite a bit of his winnings on a whirlwind worldwide bender, partying and seeing the sights in Italy, Bali, USA, Thailand, Brazil and Dubai.

John and Pauline Alford who cashed in £1.4 million from the UK National Lotter at the age of 76, celebrated their big win by taking family along with them on a trip to Florida, USA.

2015’s French Lotto winner who won €11 million on Mother’s Day (and chose to stay anonymous) took her family on a number of trips, with the first being to fulfill a lifelong dream of spending Easter in Jerusalem.

John and Susan Brands from Missouri, USA won a ridiculous $96.5 million Powerball jackpot, and almost immediately embarked on a Lord of the Rings tour of New Zealand!

While it certainly is true that you don’t need to win the lottery in order to travel the world, it is pretty difficult to argue that it doesn’t help!
