T-Minus 6 Days

the countdown is on!

overcast 60 °F

It's hard to believe, but a trip that started off as a shared dream 8-9 years ago is now just six days away. We're heading off on Tuesday, January 15th to Peru to begin our "Kirkwood Adrift" trip. Our travels will take us to 4 continents, 14 countries and will span 110 days. We've had some people inquire as to where all our travels will take us - and when we'll be there. A quick list of highlights follows:

Jan 15 - 25: Peru (Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu)
Jan 26 - Feb 7: Argentina and Chile (Buenos Aires, Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia)
Feb 7 - 10: Brazil (Rio, Carnival)
Feb 10 - 20: South Africa and Namibia (Cape Town, Wine Country, Namib Desert)
Feb 20 - 28: Botswana
Feb 29 - Mar 6: Tanzania
Mar 7 - 22: Thailand and Cambodia (Bangkok, Angkor Wat/Siem Reap, Khao Lak)
Mar 29 - Apr 4: Japan (Kyoto, Tokyo)
Apr 5 - May 1: Australia, New Zealand

A few folks have expressed an interest in trying to meet up with us during our travels. We'd certainly welcome the company. Just let us know when and where you'll be joining!

We'll be keeping this blog updated periodically as our internet connectivity allows it. Thanks, y'all....
