Well, it is just 2 days before we are set to begin Leg 2 of our amazing world travels.  Since returning to the U.S. on August 27 we have spent the past 3 1/2 months on the Maine coast.  The weather was actually seasonably warm and beautiful most of that time.  Over the past two weeks, however, the snow and cold are definitely here.  Time to move on to places where summer is actually happening now.  That means south of the Equator. 

So, here is a general idea of our itinary for Leg 2 of our travels.  I have also updated the Leg 1 itinerary with dates and places we ACTUALLY ended up going.  Thanks for following us!!

OK - I'll make the exception and join THIS on-line community so I can keep up with you boys. Wish I was there to take in the natural beauty and scenery. FLORAC sounds like my kind of place. 3 weeks in and 21 weeks to go. :)
