Well the last flight has been booked and I’m a little over 2 months to go for the start of a 139 days 18 country (plus Antarctica) adventure. I extended the trip by 9 days to guarantee the Central America trip and added a 7 day trip to Cuba.
I’ll be taking 24 Flights in all (12 Economy & 12 Business). This is 47,520 miles of flying (32,510 Bus / 15,010 Econ) which equals over 106 hrs 8 mins in the air (68 hrs 55 mins Bus / 37 hrs 13 min Econ).
Its time to start figuring out what clothes to bring to Antarctica keeping mind I have to travel and carry items for over 4 months.
I now have a iPad so I can post a daily journal to this blog and photos to Facebook and a kindle for reading while on the expedition.
One downside of the extended trip is I arrive back in Melbourne on Wednesday around 2.15 pm on 13 Feburary and now I have work the very next day instead of having a few days to ‘adjust’. Let’s see how that works out!
