Travel Journal

And so it begins...

(Tuesday 27 July 2010) by Mike and Julie's sort of round the world trip

We are just finishing up packing and shipping our belongings to our future home in the Philippines and my last day at work is 7/30. We'll be flying to Dublin on 8/4 to start our journey. Usually I have very detailed plans on the short 2 week vacations we have taken: Arrive at X, catch bus 67 outside the terminal, ride to Y and drop the bags off, Z opens at 10 AM, etc. But to plan out a year long trip would make my head explode!

Our rough plan is:
Aug - Ireland, England, Paris, Spain
Sept - Portugal Morroco Belguim
Oct - Germany Austria Italy
Nov - Greece Turkey
Dec - Jordan Egypt Kenya
Jan - Tanzania, Madagascar
Feb - Mozambique Botswana South Africa
Mar - Brazil
Apr - Uruguay Argentina
May - Chile Bolivia
Jun - Peru
Jul - Equador Galapagos
Aug - Columbia and then to Miami and make our way back to Los Angeles.

There are a few events and visa limitations and a few transport reservations that require us to be in a certain place at a certain time but our last requirement now is a Nov 1st flight from Rome to Athen so we're just making it up as we go along!

Keep in touch!

Mike and Julie
