Miss a moment? Here's a complete recap of Matt's trip
Nov. 11, 2011 at 12:39 PM ET
What a week!
Matt journeyed about 30,000 miles spanning four continents. He traveled via plane, horse, inflatable raft, ATV, skiis, helicopter, train and rickshaw.
He tried exotic foods like stinky fruit and grub — thanks to Bear Grylls — and topped it all off with a monkey cocktail on a beach in Barbados. (And speaking of monkeys, they really seemed to be a recurring theme this week).

Day 1: Skeleton Coast of Africa, Namibia
Matt started the first day of his 10th Where in the World trip with a little "spring skiing" down one of Namibia's many immense sand dunes. The images were spectacular.
Matt toured the coast, and also learned more about the region's wildlife (including cheetahs and desert elephants) and about Namibia's ancient tribe. Savannah Guthrie also tried out some of the extreme sports that Namibia is becoming known for.

Day 4: Jungfraujoch, Swiss Alps
Matt went to Jungfraujoch, Switzerland, for the fourth day of his worldwide adventure. Known as the 'Top of Europe,' Jungfraujoch rises more than 11,000 feet above sea level.
Matt met a record-breaking mountain climber, who took only three hours to scale the Eiger, an ascent that takes most three days. He also took a lesson in wilderness survival (including how to eat a grub!) from Bear Grylls, host of "Man vs. Wild."

Day 5: Barbados
Matt shed his parka and snow boots and ended up on a horse on the fifth day of his around-the-world adventure in the tropical paradise of Barbados.
He was joined by celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis to partake in a local dance — despite Matt claiming a convenient skiing accident from Jungfraujoch. He also sipped the local delicacy, a monkey cocktail!
