When we started planning this trip, our list of destinations included a lot of exotic and hard to get to places. At some point we realized that unless we wanted to spend the majority of our time in airports we had to narrow things down. There are a number of "round the world" tickets and we chose the one that seemed the most flexible and wide reaching. It allows us 39,000 miles and 16 legs.
So where are we going? After meeting up in San Francisco, Janet and I zip off to Australia, halfway round the world. Once we're on the road you'll see posts from Australia, New Zealand, China, Thailand, India, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malta, and Spain.
Temperatures will range from 30*F to 110*F. You might be curious as to how one packs for a trip like this...stay tuned. I'm calling the next installment, "Packing it all in".
