Our Route

Although we are pretty set with our rough outline, we are not filling in the exact dates just yet for the last 1/2 of our trip. The reason for this is that we are going to wait and see what the kids’ threshold is for continuous travel (<1 wk in each destination) before they need a break. For Jon and I, our threshold is about 4 weeks.  Some friends have told us that our kids will burn out more quickly, and others have urged us to keep moving so the kids don't get restless and bored.  I'm sure it is different for everyone so we are going to see how it goes.   Addendum (May 8th): We've managed a pretty rapid, continuous pace throughout, with our longest stay in any one accommodation of about 2 weeks in Capetown, SA and 2 weeks in Manly, NSW   Would love your input on any of these destinations, especially volunteer opportunities or local people/connections.  Try to refrain from urging me to expand our itinerary to additional destinations (see Destination: Everywhere post).   Reykjavik, Iceland (via air): July 23-28 Copenhagen, Denmark (via air): July 28-Aug 2 Malmo, Sweden (via train): Aug 3 Berlin, Germany (via overnight train): Aug 3-Aug 6 Prague, Czech Republic (via train): Aug 7-10 Alsace, France and Saarland, Germany (LeBoat cruise) - launch from Hesse (via private driver): Aug 10-17 Strasbourg, France (via taxi): Aug 18-19 Ehrwald, Austria (via train to Innsbruck then rented 9 passenger van): Aug 19-25 Salzburg, Austria (via rented van): Aug 25 - 29 Vienna, Austria (via rented van): Aug 29-31 Goreme, Turkey (via air): Sep 1-5 Cirali, Turkey (via overnight bus): Sep 6-9 Vigo boat Cruise, Olympos to Fethiye, Turkey: Sep 9-12 Selcuk and Ephessu, Turkey (via train): Sep 12-14 Istanbul, Turkey (via air): Sep 14-17 Zagreb, Croatia (via air): Sep 17 - 19 Dubrovnik, Croatia (via air): Sept 19-26 Mostar, Bosnia (day trip - via car): Sep 21 Ancona, Italy: Sep 26 (via overnight ferry from Split, Croatia) Venice, Italy: Sep 27- Oct 1 (via train) Tuscany, Italy: Oct 1 - 10 (via car) Naples, Italy: Oct 11-13 (via car) Positano, Italy: Oct 13-16 (via car) Pompeii, Italy: Oct 16 (en route to Rome) Rome, Italy: Oct 16-21 (via car) Morocco: Oct 21 - Nov 3 (via air) Egypt: Nov 3 – 9
