About us

We are OFF !!!!

Paul and Clare are starting their year out, off on their travels around the world. Now that Paul has reached 40 we thought that instead of him having a mid-life crisis and buying a sports car,  why not blow a wedge of money visiting some amazing places in the world such as the Great Pyramids in Egypt, the Taj Mahal in India, The Great Wall of China in......well China, Ayers Rock in Oz and the Rio Carnival in Brazil etc. 

Being away for a year is going to be hard as we shall miss all our family and friends but at least with the aid of modern technology we can keep in touch with everybody throughout our trip.  Also missing hockey and not being able to support Southampton for the next season will be hard!

 

About our trip

We have decided to take a once in a lifetime opportunity to take a year out and travel the world.  It has been in the planning stage for a couple of years but it means that we have been able to do a lot of research and fine tune the places we really want to visit on this trip.  Over the next year we are planning to visit 22 countries, starting in the Middle East and ending up in the United States.  Our adventure starts on the 19th July 2010 when we fly to Amman the capital of Jordan.

In order we will be travelling to: Jordan, Egypt, Kenya, India, Japan, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Borneo Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga, Hawaii (USA), Brazil, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador & USA. (Possibly Mexico if we get the time!)

Although there are a lot of countries on the list, the trip has been designed to give us a flavour of each country and should we really like a country, we may decide to go back there in future years for a future holiday. (Money willing of course!)

It is also a great opportunity for us to meet our very good friends Tabs & Stu who emigrated to Australia in February 2010 to spend Christmas and New Year with them, which will be great. (Actually we really want to see the dogs, Fizzy & Kiwi but seeing Tabs & Stu will be a bonus!)

So we are pleased that you can follow us on our trip and get a little insight into our experiences on this blog site.  Stay tuned!!
