Well, we made it around the world safe and sound. We flew back to Cleveland, Ohio on Friday January 2nd and are currently spending time with our families. It feels pretty weird to be back but we are slowly adjusting. We are going to spend a few weeks here before heading down to Orlando, Florida where we plan on fully adjusting back into a less transient lifestyle.
We plan on doing another more extensive blog with some more in depth questions/answers about our trip but here are a few fun facts we wanted to share.
How many flights we took: 44
How many airlines we used: 31
How many Hotels/places we stayed: exactly 100!
How much money we spent: We'll never tell. But lets just say we went a bit over budget.
Here is a story that we didn't share earlier...
Dave and I decided to rent a scooter while in Koh Samui in Thailand to explore the island. We rented a scooter once before in India and Dave drove us around no problemo. Well, we were coming down the lane to our hotel while it was raining on the scooter. The lane had these speed bumps every so often that were impossible to get over without hitting the under carriage of the scooter and as we went over the last speed bump we hit it a bit askew and because the ground was slippery with rain it sent us both flying off the scooter. Dave, the gentleman, tried to use his body as protection so I wouldn't hit the ground too hard. However, we both unfortunately did hit the ground in various ways and ended up with no broken bones - thank goodness - but with lots of bruises, cuts and scrapes. I have a small scar on my left ankle to remind of the incident. I sort of look at the scars I acquired on the trip as involuntary tattoos. Maybe I can show my grandchildren some day my old scooter scar from Thailand.
