17 Jul

Once we land in San Francisco tomorrow from London Heathrow, our time on this RTW trip will have finally come to an end. We’ve been in a relaxed mood ever since arriving in Europe, and our last few stops in Prague, Paris, Amsterdam, and London have certainly been just that. When we get home we will continue to blog on our experiences (it’ll be easier to type on a real computer for once instead of an iPad!). Reflecting back, we feel that it’s been a fantastic journey and we certainly have enough stories for a lifetime.

We’ll leave you with a few stats from our trip around the world:
17 countries
39 cities
26 flights
30,000+ miles
13 train rides (1 overnight)
3 boat rides (1 overnight)
2 rental cars
7 wonders of the natural and manmade world visited

More to come as we settle into life in the Bay Area…and sort through roughly 96 GB SD cards worth of memories!



Around the World in 2012

23 Dec

For a while now, Jerry and I have been kicking around the idea of traveling more extensively over a longer period of time, and thanks to some good timing and other circumstances, we’ve finally decided to make it a reality. Here’s our plan!

This is a revision of a previously very ambitious plan. In the initial planning stages we decided to do a “travel wish-list dump” and plot out as many places as we could think of. For anyone who’s interested, here is our original plan. In the last few months, we took out much of our list, and came up with a new list. Still pretty ambitious, so over the next couple months or even during the course of our journey these places may change, but for now, we’re pretty happy with what we’ve come up with.

We’re going to start in Peru at end of February and make our way west. The plan is for London to be our last stop sometime in July. Planning is currently going on full force, and I’ve already got some blog posts outlined in my head about the process so far. In the mean time, we’re busy with moving, travel and health insurance, visas, booking airfare and housing, and trying to stuff everything you need for five months into a backpack!

Stay tuned, and yukon ho! 🙂
