Funtastic Voyage!!

It's finally happening after months of researching, debating, comparing and brainstorming, my boyfriend and I bought our tickets and we're doing some travels around the world! We have only 2 legs of the trip planned, after that we're one-way flying to anywhere we want. No kids, no mortgage, no time limit and away we go!

We depart October 1st to Okinawa, Japan for 2 weeks where my dad, stepmom and brother live. The 39th Annual Naha Great Tug of War Festival takes place and we can't miss the 656 foot, 44-ton rope being pulled by the East and West sides (22,000 people.)

Next we're off to Denpasar, Bali for at least a month's stay, looking forward to even more relaxation and soaking up new culture. After that we have lightly planned to head south to Australlia or venture north to the rest of Southeast Asia (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam.) Then it's possibly India, Egypt, Africa and definitely Europe

As destiny would have it, Tim's cousin is on her own search of adventure, opportunity and enlightenment. Spontaniously, she is now joining us on our journey to Bali! It's so exciting to find another person with the same freedom and eagerness to explore the world.  We are so fortunate to have another companion on our trip and I wonder how many other friends and family would be open and available for such a trip?

We set our budget and plan to travel frugally to allow us to get to more destinations. We don't have a time limit and if a place suits us, we may stay awhile.

I've had 7 immunization shots, been on the phone for days, tying up loose ends, stored my belongings in the Taj-ma-Shed we recently built, researched this and that... lots of work to do before we go and it has been an awakening experience.

Tim and I hope to be able to update our blog as often as internet cafes are available. Please check back periodically to see updates to our trip.
