Trip Itinerary

Written on: Sunday September 2nd, 2007

A journal entry from: Kevin and Julie's RTW

After months and months of deliberation and excel spreadsheets, budget sheets, maps, and endless reading of guide books here is our trip itinerary. We are going to try to keep within the time estimates for each continent so as to not go over budget and end up missing out on Africa and possibly Europe at the end of the trip. We are leaving it open though, knowing that things have a way of not going as planned.

These 2 last legs of the trip have a potential country listing but none of these are fixed as it will depend on remaining time and budgetary constraints.

Hey guys. What an awesome trip. Looking forward to following you guys around via this blog. One suggestion... for way down the road: spend at least a month in Turkey... and I dont think you will need a month for Laos. And just a question, but are you really carrying all those books with you???

AAAHHHhhhhh.....so extremely envious. Still can't believe you guys are doing this...it's awesome!! Hey, maybe you can take some cool pictures of unique, cool cafes for me? Its my latest obsession.

From Kevin and Julie's RTW on Oct 1st, 2007

Nope, not carrying all those books with us. Each one will be sent to us as we get to the new area.
