Around the World in 98 Days
First stop: Buenos Aires, Argentina. The main highlight from my few days in Buenos Aires was the Tango Festival. My next stop was Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, where I would board the Europa. Notes from South America
Antarctica and Across the Atlantic

Traveling by more traditional means – spending nearly 24 hours in flight – my wife, Jan, met me in Cape Town, South Africa. We visited Victoria Falls, the Chobe Game Reserve, the Okavango Delta, and Kruger National Park. We also spent several days in Johannesburg, South Africa. Notes from Africa
Next, I flew from Cape Town, South Africa, to New Delhi, India, with a layover in Frankfurt, Germany. This provided my only stop on the European continent; a technicality, yes, but I'll take it! I packed quite a bit of sightseeing into my two days in India, staying in New Delhi and visiting Old Delhi for the first time. Notes from India
Thailand and beyond...
The last leg of my journey took me to Thailand.
Because it was the rainy season and the beach resorts were
closed for the season, I spent a lot of time in the northern Udon
Thani region of the country. I also squeezed in a fantastic,
two-day side trip to Laos.
