Only 11 days left for our upcoming round the world trip !
We are eager to for the calendar to show December 16th !! The children have expressed wishes to go to school on the 'big day' even if we will need to pick them up before school ends, probably in the hope that the day will seem to proceed quicker :-) and the waiting won't be felt to be tooooo long.
For months now we have been counting down, Eline has made her own 'count-down' calendar, and every morning there's yet another day to be crossed out. And now, only 11 days remaining.
Tickets, visas, ESTAs, international driver's licences, credit card coverage, insurance, hotel bookings, hostel bookings, condo bookings, snorkel trips, day trips, overnight trips, bush trips, car reservations, camper van bookings, holiday park bookings, domestic flights bookings, and a last minute change of travel plans - we are not starting out in Bangkok as originally planned (so no Thai massage for Johannes which he has been so looking forward to, and no golden Buddhas for Eline to marvel at, either) - instead we'll have one night in ... Beijing (and more visas to take care of), and thankfully, the children are very excited to visit China, if only for a day and a half. I Kina spiser man hunde (In China, they eat dogs) - but I'll try the Peking Duck instead, thankyou very much.
Cat sitters have been booked, as well as rabbit carers, the house will be looked well after by friendly neighbours and family. Bags remain to be packed, and then we are off on this much anticipated adventure of ours.
Welcome to our round the world travel blog - we're a family of four preparing for our greatest travel adventures so far. We will visit Oz, NZ, Fiji and Hawaii and have been looking forward to this trip in what feels like forever :-).
We plan to udate this site regularly, and we hope you will leave a comment or two along the way. Happy reading !
