It sounds ludicrously cheap, but it is possible to jet around the world this summer - visiting eight far-flung locations - for just over $1500.
A travel specialist has combined five separate one-way plane tickets to create a round-the-world itinerary for a mere US$1161 ($1585).
The month-long trip kicks off in New York this January and makes its way to Stockholm, Sweden; Bangkok, Thailand; Sydney, Australia; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Portland, Oregon, before returning back to New York.
Travel website The Airfare Spot found the cheapest flight, somewhat surprisingly, is from New York to Stockholm with Norwegian Air, a seven-hour journey which costs only US$139 ($190).
After three days in Sweden, it's on to Bangkok, again with Norwegian Air - which has gained popularity in recent years thanks to it's aggressively low prices - for US$216 ($295).
Six days in Thailand's bustling capital city is a good stretch of time with which to explore its plentiful attractions, then next up is the gruelling 20-hour Air Asia flight to Sydney - with a nine-hour nighttime layover in Kuala Lumpur - at a cost of just US$150 ($205).
There is very little to see or do in Kuala Lumpur between those hours of midnight to 9am, so it's best in this case to book into an airport hotel.
The itinerary then allows three days in Sydney, followed by a US$310 ($423) flight to Hawaii with JetStar Airlines, which will take nine and a half hours.
After four blissful days on the beaches of Honolulu, it's time to return to New York with Hawaiian Airlines on February 13 at a cost of US$341 ($465) - making a stopover at Portland, Oregon.
This layover is almost 11 hours, starting from 8pm, so there's plenty of time for a leisurely dinner in this vibrant city.
The entire jaunt covers more than 38,000 kilometres.
