Welcome to Be Back Whenever where Mark and Susan blogged about our Around the World Trip!
We’ve been home for about 3 months now so it must be time to take another trip! We’re off in August for a cruise to Alaska with a land tour added on to Denali. After a stop to visit Mom, we head off to Europe for about 2 months – Norway, Sweden, Helsinki, Tallinn, Riga, Krakow, Munich for Oktoberfest, a few weeks in Malta, and two weeks of cat sitting in Geneva.
I’m sure we’ll hit a few microbreweries along the way in between museums and churches and markets. We’ll blog as we go so check out the blogs for our tales of travels!
The packing should be WAY easier this time!
The RTW Trip … August 2017 – May 2018
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.
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, 2018. 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.
