4 days away, and we are nowhere near ready... Brit has no backpack, Lindsey has no passport, and Sarah has no pages left in her passport, and we all have last minute visas to get, errands to run, and bags to pack. But after almost a year of planning we are all just excited/ anxious to get moving.this is our itinerary for the year (we only have plane tickets booked up until Australia so after that we will just figure out where we want to go in south America the most and how much money we have left.
June 3rd~ leave Chicago (we have a 8 hour layover in Dublin, which hopefully will be enough time to go visit the Guinness factory)
June 4th~ arrive in Athens, Greece ( we will spend three weeks touring the Greek islands, and then we take a ferry to Turkey around the 26th of June where we will spend three more weeks)
July 15th~ arrive in Cairo, Egypt ( we will spend 2 weeks around Egypt and 1 week in Jordan)
August 5th~ arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa ( we spend three weeks driving along the coast between cape town and Johannesburg)
August 28th ~ arrive in Livingstone, Zambia where our 23 day safari starts. (the safari goes through Botswana and Namibia)
Sept 23~ arrive in Kathmandu, Nepal ( we will spend around three weeks in Nepal attempting to trek to Mt Everest base camp)
around October 16-18 ~arrive in Varanasi, India (we will spend a month and a half traveling through india)
November 30th ~ arrive in Bangkok, Thailand
December 14th ~ arrive in Phnom Penn, Cambodia (we meet Sarah and Lindsey's mom and spend a little over a week in Cambodia)
December 21st~ Koh Phi Phi, Thailand ( we go to my favorite place on earth to spend Christmas and then spend a month traveling through the islands of Thailand, up to the north into Laos, then down to Malaysia)
January 28~arrive in Perth, Australia ( we spend a few days here before flying to Melbourne and driving up the east coast for a month
February 28~ New Zealand (we will travel around north and south island for around a month)
March 28~ fly to south America (either into Lima, Peru and spend a month and a half in Peru, Equator, and Columbia or into Buenos aires Aires, Argentina and spend a month and a half in Argentina, Chile, and Brazil)
so now you know our dates. We would love if you came to meet up with us somewhere along the way we already have some confirmed guest travelers along the way (Kelly, Jon, Tom, and Diane) and we would love to see the rest of you

How is Greece?

Don't drop your wallet
How's Greece? You know what they say if you drop your wallet in Greece? You have to kick it to Albania before you can bend over to pick it up!

Hope your having fun.

Your Favorite Uncle Carl.

Too Much Fun?
Well so far only (1) trip to the hospital. Make sure you keep the woumd clean, stay out of the pools & oceans until it has healed. Also Bitt keep mashing in lotion or scars away on to the wound so that you won't have a long term memory every time you look in the mirror. Keep having fun? Nice bunks on Los!, not. Be safe.
