Countdown: Two weeks!

| | Comments (0)

Just two weeks left before we depart. The three feet of snow that landed in DC did not help our visa acquisition time line, but we have high hopes we can obtain the last two before we leave. We will finish our New Zealand South Island itinerary later tonight, in the meantime - check out our itinerary so far on www.tripit.com

We have also re-enabled the comments, hopefully the spam robots that plagued me previously won't strike again.

First Stop - New Zealand North Island

Here is a quick summary of the first leg of our trip. Because of the international date line we leave Feb 28th, but don't arrive in Auckland until March 2nd. We will have just four short days to adjust to jet lag and tour the north island. One day in Auckland, and one day in the Bay of Islands before we fly off to Christchurch for 11 days on the South Island.

It's finally time to dust off the travel blog and do some real traveling again! We are just three weeks away from our departure and are frantically trying to finalize everything. Tickets are purchased, our employers are notified, we've been stuck about 7 times for immunizations, and we have most of our visas in-hand. For those of you that don't know the itinerary is as follows:

New Zealand
Thailand
Laos
Vietnam
Cambodia
India
Tanzania
Uganda
Rwanda
Kenya
France

I will be posting individual posts with some details of the specific segments (New Zealand, Asia, Africa) in the coming days, so stay tuned.
