Place: San Francisco, California
I feel good to have finally finished the write up of this trip. Mike and I have both said that now that we’ve had some time back in the U.S. and have seen our family and friends, we really want to head out again. This trip allowed us to find out about all the places we haven’t seen yet. So we are working on saving up some more money for our next trip.
I wanted to thank a few people for making this trip fantastic. I wanted to thank my sister and her roommates; my Uncle Chip and Aunt Irina; Kevin; Mark; my Uncle Butch and Aunt Peg; Josh and his roommates; and my Aunt Trudy for letting us stay at their places during the trip and its aftermath. I wanted to thank James; Major McCoy; Piers, David, and Rennike; Lee and Emily; and Charlie for showing me around their hometowns, as well as the others I met who offered. I wanted to thank Archana, Sooketoo, Vinay, Ed, Caroline, Lin, Lara, Jim, James, John, Guy, Trudy, and others for their advice on cool places to see and how to go about getting there. I wanted to thank Kathleen Rush at AAA Travel for setting up our around the world ticket. Finally, I wanted to thank Luis, Noelia and Nahuel, Carlos, Landscape Tours, Surf Camp, Sompop, Monkey Business Tours, Wen, Sercan, Ali, the Venus Hotel, and Wandar for showing us their part of the world with such aplomb.
