Carefree World Travelers … Our next Adventure

60 days and counting!  We’ve talked about spending time in Southeast Asia for several years and finally the timing is right for us to make it happen. We’re excited!  On October 4, 2016 we fly from Orlando to Bangkok, Thailand, for the start of our six month trip.  No more dreaming and talking … now for the planning! 

The itinerary is set but flexible, the international air is confirmed from Orlando to Bangkok, Thailand via Washington Dulles and Narita, Japan.  A total of 23 hours in flight (not counting pre and post flight formalities or layovers) Phew!  Once that’s over we’ll relax and start enjoying ourselves!  Since this is an international trip we are trying to be better organized so we’ve become list-makers!  We’ve renewed our Passports, checked Visa information and studied the currencies of the different countries we’ll be visiting.  We’ve subscribed to blogs written by those who have chosen the nomadic lifestyle and are learning valuable information.  We are not alone.

Why Southeast Asia and Why Six Months? 

During our travel careers we’ve both been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel extensively in the United States and around the world.  After escorting some groups to Asia back in the early 90’s, Bill was hooked!  Asia invites us with delicious food, beautiful scenery and friendly people.  It’s hard to resist!
