I keep asking Dave if it is too soon to pack for our trip. I guess it is a little more reasonable now that we actually have an itinerary than it was 2 months ago, but he keeps laughing about how impatient I am. It just seems like once you decide to do something like this you should hurry, before you change your mind. Kind of like ripping off a bandage…

Ok, we changed our minds again. The round the world ticket has now become a ‘circle the pacific’ ticket. We can go to Europe any time, and this way we won’t become too burnt out to enjoy the trip by traveling for so long. Plus, we do have a dog which has to stay with grandma while we are gone. Instead of doing a huge round the world journey we are breaking it up into two smaller (but still big) trips. It is just as economical and will be easier to plan (and pack!).
So the basic itinerary for trip number one is LA-Hong Kong-Bangkok-Bali-Perth-overland to Brisbane-Auckland-Tahiti-LA.
