After two months of researching our top destinations, it was time to pare the list. The airline Round The World ticket has a maximum of sixteen stops, so we can’t see the entire world in the six unscheduled months we have before us.
We spent a rousing New Year’s eve trying to narrow down our must sees, decide how long to spend on each continent, and find the most milage friendly RTW airline route. Hours later, with piles of charts and numbered country rankings, we were barely speaking.
Pausing to watch the ball drop in Times Square lifted our spirits and the Champagne toast helped, too.
My resolution for 2014: I will travel more and eat more veggies. I know I can accomplish one of those!
