Hello and Welcome to Ben and Lindsey's blog: Where in the World

Thanks to all our family and friends for your interest and support on this awesome around-the-world adventure! We hope you enjoy checking in with us through this blog from time to time to hear about our highlights, check out some cool pictures, and just make sure we're still alive.

So, for everyone that's been asking us, "Where in the world are you going for the next 15 or so months?" here's our reply:

To get a graphical depiction, along with dates and captions on each destination, visit our Google map, which we'll be updating throughout the trip as plans change: Where in the World Trip Overview
Here's the more general lay-of-the land for the countries we'll hit along the way:

Way to go kid Only someone with a lot of ____'s could do this Ben. When I was your age I was busy trying to pay your old man for building our first house. Have a great trip and we look forward to following it. You must have a special gal to follow you to the ends of the earth. XO's to her

Take care Dave and Aileen P

Re: Awesome Itinerary!
Would be pysched if you joined us in Nepal, Ben! We'll be researching Nepal this summer as we take rest days in Yosemite, the Tetons, etc and we'll keep you posted on what we're thinking. There are some great guides out there on the Everest BC Trek and the Annapurna Circuit!

We could likely climb Icy Peak too if we got our plans together ahead of time!

Congrats to the two of you!!!
Sounds like an incredible trip you are embarking on - the Around-The-World trip as well as your marriage.
I'm very happy for you Ben-Jammin', and Lindsey, although i haven't had the chance to meet you, you must be an amazing women to be keeping up with him. Hope you wear him out ;)
