Wow!
What a trip! I have followed your blogs off and on for ages, but having a couple of idle days this week have read them from start to finish! I feel quite exhausted after reading about so many countries!

Hmph! Hugely different from my experience there! I have got to go back one day... with very strong seasickness tablets!!!

What on earth did you do with all the souvenirs you must have bought whilst travelling? I'm always amazed by how just a few souvenirs can complicate packing for the journey home; I dread to think what it must be like after a year!

Leopard 1

Beautiful animal
I've been reading all your Africa blogs over the last couple of days. You are so lucky to have seen leopards in the wild! May I ask how close you were? What kind of lens did you use to capture so many close-ups of animals?

Hi Anna,
Hi Anna, Thanks for all the comments, it's nice to see people still look at our blogs every once in a while. It's so hard to believe, all the things we have seen and done. Africa was already 5 years ago. I miss it so much. We actually didn't buy too many souvenirs, but luckily both sets of our parents came to meet us in Cape Town for a week, so we were able to unload a bunch of stuff on to them. This was really nice. As for photography - Jordan was shooting with a 70-300 lens most of the time, and this photo might have been cropped as well- can't remember. :-) We just moved to northern Canada, the Yukon actually - it is more of a life style choice, looking forward to exploring a bit more of our own country for a change. Take care, safe travels. Kathie

500 days, really??
Glad to hear you're starting to adapt to the life 'back home'... I think that's the most difficult part. I'm now looking forward to your next adventure, I love reading your blogs and your pictures are always amazing! Good luck with everything, guys!

Wow
Hey guys! Amazing final blog...perhaps there will be another trip in the future? Your trip is/was very similar to ours and you're also from Calgary! We're currently in Nepal, then India, then Myanmar, Phillipines, then China....eventually ending up in New Zealand. Going home is something that is so hard to explain to others who do not travel, we totally understand all the changes! After our first year away, it was more foreign to us to be at home than on the road. Hopefully Calgary isn't too cold right now! Enjoy the holidays. Dariece

Hi Kathy, Thanks for another wonderful journey! - I've enjoyed the stories and the pictures are amazing! You and Jordon should change up careers and work for national geographic or some sort of travel guide - Welcome home. Lynda

Thank you!
Just wanted to let you know that my daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed your emails. They are going to be sorely missed. I can't help but be surprised that with eating so many foreign/different foods that neigher of you got sick - if anything you both look the picture of radiant health, even more so then when you first started. If you even make another trip - do keep me in mind. Thanks you so very much xoxoxo

Welcome to the Great White North!
Douglas Adams notwithstanding, it sounds as if Japan was a great place to visit, and a marvelous way to wind down your journey in preparation to returning home. We look forward to seeing you in the next couple of weeks. Have a great flight, and don't worry: you haven't missed winter - it's still here, waiting for you to enjoy! :-)
5th December 2011

Good luck
I'll miss your blog Jordan and Kathie - it's been nice travelling vicariously throughout the last 10 months! Enjoy Xmas in Canada with your families.
5th December 2011

Welcome back!!
I am looking forward to seeing both of you when I am back in Calgary. Safe travels back to Canada.

Hey Guys, We went to Osaka aquarium only because we needed to kill time before flying out of the city... It completely blew us away. There were two whale sharks there when we went, was there only one at your visit? Begs the question as to how they transport a fish that big, unless it died of course which would be tragic. We tried to visit every aquarium we come across, I suppose its the divers in us trying to relive the feeling above the water, Osaka is definitely up there as one of the best with Monterey Bay aquarium... Truly amazing! Mike.
