Top 10 places we’ll see

Anna and I have been crafting our Must-See  list for “The Trip”:

in no particular order:

Russia (St. Petersburg and Moscow, via the Trans-Mongolian Railway to/from China

China (Beijing, Shanghai, Great Wall, etc.)

India (Goa, Mumbai, Agra, Taj Mahal, Anna wants to do a yoga retreat…possibly solo)

Australia (scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, koalas and kangaroos)

New Zealand

Egypt (Cairo, felucca down the Nile to see Sphinx and Pyramids, maybe some camel riding)

African Roadtrip (from Nairobi to Cape Town/Johannesburg in 10 weeks.  If anyone has tips on buying a car in Nairobi, we’re listening)

Israel (Jerusalem, Bethlehem, etc.)

Thailand (Bangkok, Phuket, beaches, maybe Thai cooking classes for Anna)

Island retreat (Seychelles, Mauritius, Palau, ????)

We’ll be leaving plenty of time to sidetrip to places we hear about on the road that peak our interest, but that is the general framework of the trip.  If anyone knows friends in these places (other than Johnson, we know him) let us know.  We’d be very excited about meeting some locals.




  1. Tommy and Anna,

    I was sharing your travel plans with your old neighbor – Gracie (co-owner of Grace Home Health) and she said she would love to get you in contact with her brother who lives in south India. Call me when you have time and I will give you Gracie’s contact info.
