Can't believe now it's 2017, and it's been almost 6 years since I wrote that.
Wow, the trip in September was amazing - wonderful people, fascinating countries, and up close and personal (OK - still inside the van ) with all of the Big Five, as well as Cheetahs.
Now a trip to Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Borneo is in the planning stages for March.
And that trip is now history too, and again it was wonderful - a surprising and beautiful country.
Leaving on Boxing Day for a cruise from Santiago Chile to Tahiti - seems like a good way to avoid the January Blahs. January has come and gone, although Easter Island was interesting and Tahiti was beautiful, I'll never forget Fakarava or Pitcairn Island.
This fall we have a Mediterranean cruise planned , then Indonesia in March.
And once again those trips are history. This fall we are going on a cruise from Istanbul to Athens, then Burma/Myanmar in January.Then Vietnam Nam and Cambodia and a cruise around the Arabian peninsula.
Another January and time to plan this year's adventure - Namibia and Botswana.
