Anyone do a RTW trip? Looking for itineraries and time committed.

Sure, depends how long and what your definition of it is. I’ve done one in 3 days and also one in 2 months. Are you looking to hit a specific number of continents, or just purely “go around the world” (in which a stop in Europe and then in Asia for a US-based person would count as RTW)? Clarify a bit and can provide more context and tips for booking.

Options unlimited. A few weeks.

Yeah but much longer than a few weeks for my one. More like a few months and even then felt like was rushing a bit too much. World is a big place.

Moved to Big Law last summer from mid sized firm, but I'm not sure if I'm performing well. I've worked on some good matters but last month or two has had quiet periods (1-2weeks) and a few of the matters I've been put on have been smaller discrete ones rather than a big M&A deal. Although the team isnt too busy overall. I haven't had a "talk" or any general negative feedback. Would the partners mention to me if my performance was below par or is this their way of showing it? Should I ask?

If that’s the case should I just book the 36k or are the odds a 21k becomes available again high?
