Getting ready to go!

B & T

Brent and I are leaving for our trip on July 29th.  Our house is filled with giveaway piles and moving boxes. We both have one week left of work and it’s a mad dash for the finish line. It’s so close and doesn’t yet feel real.

Current thoughts:  6 months seems like a lot of time, but when you start planning it out, it goes quick! Our general plan is to do 3 legs.  2 months in BC, 6 weeks in Asia (Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia), 10 weeks South America (Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Chile).

Here’s our rough itinerary for the first leg:

July 29-31 – Squamish – Lisa & Anton’s Wedding

August 1 – Parksville

August 2 – Courtenay

August 4 – Ferry from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert

August 5 – Travel to Haida Gwaii

August 6-15 – Haida Gwaii

August 15-30 – Northern BC & Yukon

September 3-5 – Indian Arm – Ashley & Matt’s Wedding

September 6-9 – Sunshine Coast

September 9-11 – Bowen Island – Phil & Erica’s Wedding

September 12-25 – Okanagan & Kootenays

September 26-28 – Seattle

September 29 – Off to Tokyo!

We will update our itinerary in future posts as the path emerges.
