Upcoming Long Trip. by Wheelrim on 27 February 2013 5:06pm
 
A couple of weeks ago I put a Thread on Blathering On, `Wheelrim has itchy feet`. Well, I think its better off in the Travel section as there appears to be a different group of people here, maybe more interested in travelling?Shirley and I have booked two Round The World Tickets and will be `On The Road` for 10 months. I am 52 Shirl is 58. This is our Itinery:- Leaving Spain where we are, we go to UK, 18th June we fly UK-Mumbai, then Overland (30 hour train, can`t wait!) to Nepal and stay for a couple of weeks before flying out of Kathmandu for Ho-Chi-Min in Vietnam then travelling overland through Cambodia (we have a friend who runs a Charity School for kids there), Thailand, Malaysia (3 months) and flying out of Singapore for Bali (Indonesia)) for a couple of weeks. From Bali we fly to Melbourne and staying on our friends farm 300miles north to help out with their annual Sheep-Shearing. Really looking forward to two months of being in the middle of nowhere. From Melbourne we fly to Auckland in NZ for a month or so before flying to the Cook Islands for 2 weeks. From there we fly to LA where we will travel overland to NY, Then Home. We will probably be in the States for 3 months. So, Planes Trains and Automobiles...Rickshaws, Elephants? who knows! Really looking forward to the experiences ahead and if anyone has any tips or `Must-See` places of interest I would love to read them. Thanks, John and Shirley

Oh Fantastic...now don't show up from the 12-20 of April, we'll be in T&C!! I'll bring the biscuits and coffee...if you want a nice drive, byt he time you reach NY though you might be done...A drive to Sharon Connecticut is worth a trip. Will you be posting here as you travel? If not email me at the google address and I'll keep an eye out when ye are in NY.
