Australia 2019 The Journey Begins! September 20

A Journey with 4 ‘Legs’ begins with the first leg!! Honolulu to Sydney!

Hello Blog Followers,

Thanks for joining us again as we journey into our beautiful world! This trip will take us on an adventure to Australia, with an unusual way to begin...well let me start at the beginning...

My friend Sharon and I have done some bike trips in the last 5 years: Tuscany, Italy; Chile; South Africa! They have been wonderful opportunities to see parts of the world at a slower pace and up close to the people/cultures. We have loved them. So when we were planning a bike trip for this year we thought the Pacific Ocean would be a great place to get ‘up close to the people/culture’, but it doesn’t lend itself well to a bike trip. So, we have opted for a cruise, beginning in Honolulu (for a few days before boarding the ship) on September 23 and ending in Sydney, Australia on October 11! And so we can actually say it’s a bike trip we hope to use the stationary bikes on the ship each day to actually ‘bike’ the Pacific Ocean!! This is ‘Leg 1’ of our trip.

When we arrive in Sydney, Terry will join us and we will do a couple more cruises up and down the east coast of Australia, (same ship too, Celebrity Solstice). This is ‘Leg 2 and 3’. Then ‘Leg 4’ will be a trip to the Outback, Alice Springs and Ayers Rock, returning home on November 3. This blog will highlight the events of these 4 ‘Legs’ of the trip with photos, provided we have wifi access!

Today I am flying to Honolulu, 3 flights over 16 hours! Tomorrow Sharon will join me and we will hang out at the beaches until September 23 when we board the ship. I am excited to begin this adventure. More to come....

Carol on the go!
