Be Back Whenever

Come along on our journey!

Welcome to Be Back Whenever where Mark and Susan blogged about our Around the World Trip!  We’re including the planning, frustrations, great companies (or not so great companies) and products we’re using on this trip.  We’re also answering questions from friends and family about how to plan/pack/navigate a trip for 9-12 months.

You can check out  our schedule we had for the trip and the statistics of the trip.  We blogged along the way, too, with the tales of our travels!

After 63 different hotels and apartments; 17 countries (18 if you count the Istanbul airport); 31 different flights; 11 different trains; 5 ferry rides; and 262 days, we made it home!  It’s July 9 and we’ve been home 52 days. It seems as if we were never gone.

Being from Fort Collins, CO – home to about 23 microbreweries – we like to check out microbreweries around the world and we’re keeping track of the ones we visit on the Microbrewery and Beers page.  Check it out – updated May 8.  This page has info on all the beer we tried around the world.  Is this why people wonder why our pictures always have a beer in hand??

We love signs, thanks to Mark’s cousin Darcy.  We take pictures of interesting/confusing/amusing ones as we go.

It’s time to start the next trip … Alaska and on to Europe to pick up the safari bags we left in Heidelberg last year.
