Thriall mi air feadh an t-saoghail gu le/ir a dh' eirmeas co\ mo charaid.
Air feadh = all over, gu le/ir (NOT gu leo\ir!) = completely, the two
that give the right idea here.
Airmis - the right verb, but you want the infinintive not the imperative.
Bha mi a' dol = I was going, wrong tense, if you want to use rach you need to
say chaidh mi rather than bha mi a' dol, but triall (or siubhail) is probably
a better choice of verb for travel.
Maybe I would say "co\ e bha caraid dhomh" instead of "co\ mo charaid".
