Around The World In 80 Trades

Published on 1st April 2016 by

Economist and former City analyst Conor Woodman sold his flat and uses £25,000 of the proceeds in an attempt to trade his way around the world, buying products in one country and then selling them in another country for a profit, with lots of highs and lows along the way. His aim was to double his money and return home with £50,000.

He starts his journey in Sudan where he buys camels and take them along one of the oldest trade routes in the world to sell them in Egypt, his journey sees him travel through three continents and he finishes the journey in Mexico where he attempts to sell 400 bottles of Tequila and some inflatable longboards from China.
