Around the World in 120 Days (1997)

Slide Show

In August 1997, my wife Carol and I started a four month trip around the world. Our itinerary: a month each in Turkey, Southern Africa (South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana), and South India (Mumbai, Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu), with linking stops in between at London, Athens, (Turkey,) Cairo, (S. A., S. I.,) Bangkok, and Honolulu. We followed that with a cross-country drive and relocation from Boston to Portland, Oregon. We finally moved into our own home again in April 1998 after a year on the move. Photos from the trip are in the the trip newletters.
