Here we are again, and this time we are leaving on our last big trip before trying to start a family. We have chosen Africa because of the wildlife, the exotic landscapes, and the price. This trip will be a bit different from our South America trip because we have planned a specific itinerary. We found that the spontaneous approach to travel that we took in 2009 meant for more wasted planning days during the trip itself. This time, we have spent countless hours doing online searches, bookings and wire transfers in order to have everything arranged beforehand. We will discover which approach is best in the next 11 weeks. We are not sure how reliable our internet access will be, so we may not be able to post as many photos as in our South America blog. We hope our friends and family will enjoy our occasional updates and will send comments from home. Thanks again to everyone who has made this possible.
