It is weird writing about our “next big trip” – something I couldn’t even fathom at the beginning of our last year in Central and South America.
It is like we are a perfect fit for long term travel or something.
So I present:
THE PLAN OF ATTACK – FALL/WINTER 2012
Because, you know, there may be another plan of attack after that. Hell, we’re still considering doing the 2013 Mongol Rally if we can get the sponsorship involved (if you have any ideas or would like to sponsor us, please feel free to drop me a line on our contact page).
But first on our list:
If you haven’t heard by now, Shaun and I will have the opportunity to visit Anchorage, Alaska with our partnership with Hilton Garden Inn on August 23. I literally was flapping my arms, hopping around, and screaming at the top of my lungs when we received that email.
Alaska has been one of those places in my dreams, but not one I thought I would be able to visit any time soon. I have heard such great things and we are super excited!
Keep your eye out for a post about us glacier trekking. With my ungraceful moves, it should be an interesting time for sure.
We will be flying from Anchorage to NYC for a night to catch our plane to Reykjavik, Iceland on August 28. It is funny how things ended up – I’m not a fan of the cold but we’re spending a few weeks in colder, icy regions of the world!
A week will be spent there while we go to the Blue Lagoon, Gulfoss, Jökulsárlón, SCUBA diving the tectonic rift, and whale watching. We will also be renting a car to go around Iceland in a week on the Ring Road. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. I’m just glad I’ll have my camera with me to capture everything. *drool*
On September 11 we will be flying into Heathrow (London) to begin our Europe trip with our partners at EURail to helps us along our way. We were trying to get an itinerary going but I think we’re mainly playing it by ear. We will be going to TBEX in Costa Brava, Paris, zooming around Italy, Munich for Oktoberfest on my 30th birthday, Berlin, Prague, Amsterdam, and back into London in time for the World Travel Market – in which we will be flying back into NYC on November 9.
If you happen to be in Europe, let us know. Maybe we will change our itinerary to hang out where you are. We’re looking for adventure and leaving our options open is the best way to do it! 😀
When we get back, we’re not really sure what we’re doing. Hell, we don’t even really know how we’re getting home from NYC. It is all part of the adventure right?
We’re hoping to get some snowboarding in at some point this year… maybe we’ll head south to get our Dive Master certification. Who knows?
All I know is that we’re having a blast in the process.
