I’m no travel agent but I’ve successfully booked a few trips here and there so I thought I could handle this one too. But, after what felt like months of research and nearly losing my mind trying to coordinate our dream trip to multiple destinations (eg. flights/tours/hotels) on a budget we stumbled upon something different and chose to instead take a WORLD CRUISE! It’s funny because neither of us had even considered a cruise before. We had wanted to do a G-Adventure tour or buy a sailboat and explore around somewhere tropical that way. But when we sat down and honestly looked at what we could do, we only felt like we could take a few months at the most…we both feel like we need to get jobs and be responsible and stuff (which I’m sure our parents are grateful for). So anyways, it was an awesome surprise for us when we found a last minute cruise deal. We are going to be able to see more than we ever imagined and we don’t have to worry about booking hotels and flights along the way. So even though it isn’t what we had originally planned, it’s going to hopefully be the best of both worlds and give us everything we want, without the stress of planning everything ourself (because that just wasn’t working out). And we are still going to spend a lot of time on the water which is exciting.
So we fly out of Calgary Nov 6th to South America, then cross the South Pacific, then up to the Mediterranean in Jan 2014. This map roughly outlines our trip
We leave in one month! OMG!
