Posted:Woo hoo! (with a hint of Eeeeeeeeeeek) biggrin



Just booked our round the world tickets!

Argh - quite scary!



So thought I'd better set about getting all my contacts lined up and see if anyone's going to be anywhere near us at any stage.



Our (vague) plans are as follows:

London - Goa (9th November)

Make our way North into Rajasthan and the foothills, leaving from...

Delhi - Bangkok (16th December)

Explore Thailand, Cambodia etc, making our way eventually down to...

Singapore - Bali (10th February)

Spend a bit of time in Indonesia before flying from...

Bali - Perth (3rd March)

Explore a bit of the West Coast before...

Perth - Adelaide (31st March)

Set up home somewhere for 3 months, working and getting more funds together

Sydney - Christchurch (21st July)

Freeze our nips off and look at pretty mountains, before going from

Auckland - Buenos Aires (28th June)

Overland over to Santiago, making our way up to...

Lima - New York City (19th August)

NYC - London (23rd August)



Large portions of niceness biggrin

Anyone fancy meeting up for a beer somewhere then? wink

Thanks to poofter-boy Ben for his lovely hosting - and errr....might you be around Sunday evening at all? wink

Not sure what we're going to do, not planning on being in Brissy right through to Friday, but might head vaguely north and pass back through on Friday.
Then making our way to Sydney and flying out on the 1st.

Nice to be back in the sun again!
