07/16/01: We have completed the world trip portion of the website (though we will continue to cleanup small points).  New items of interest include: updated New Zealand page with the last week of activity and pictures, completed Australia page, completed United States page.  We have also added a Trip by Numbers page, updated the itinerary map, updated the Best and Worst page with new items (check update date), updated the In Review page with Trip Summary and summary and a Traveling Advice section.
05/31/01: We have published a 'DRAFT' version of the New Zealand page with some information/pictures about what we have done in New Zealand so far -- note that some of this might change!  We have also updated the itinerary on the map below.  Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past month.
05/14/01: We have completed the Japan page (even before we leave the country!), and have added a couple Best/Worst entries, as well as a little cleanup on the Thailand and Hong Kong pages.  Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
05/08/01: We have completed the Hong Kong page.  We have also updated the final schedule for our trip -- we plan to be back in Atlanta in early July.  Be sure to check out the recently completed pages for Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand.  Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
05/06/01: We have completed the Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand pages.  We also updated (or cleaned up) some of the items on the Best and Worst page. Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
05/04/01: We have completed the Cambodia page, and are in the process of adding the Vietnam and Thailand pages, and will complete them asap.  We also updated (or cleaned up) some of the items on the Best and Worst page. Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
05/01/01: We are process of adding the Cambodia and Vietnam pages, and will complete them in the next few days (delay due to laptop death, and waiting to find qualified repair shop!)  We also updated (or cleaned up) some of the items on the Best and Worst page. Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
04/15/01: We have added the complete Nepal and Tibet pages.  We completed text on the India and added a section and pictures for our short stay in Mumbai.  Have also defaulted the cursor to the 'destination selection' list below, to make it easier to jump to a country page (for those using Internet Explorer). Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
04/12/01: We have added the complete Tibet page, and completed text on the India (Nepal page coming soon).  Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
4/2/01: We completed pictures and limited text on the India page.  Remember to check the Cairo and  London pages, which were updated last week.  Be sure to check past status for other update details over the past few weeks.
3/29/01: We added the text to the Cairo page.  We also updated the London page with details of our second pass through.  Still have not fixed Javascript errors on the 'Jump' feature below, but have figured it the problem -- trying to figure out how to get past FrontPage issues.  Be sure to check past status for other update detail over the last couple weeks, including references to some cool audio and video on the site (bugling/dogs at the River Club, ants in the Amazon, and elephant showering in Ngala).
3/21/01: We have completed the Victoria Falls (Zambia & Zimbabwe) and Johannesburg pages, but still have only pictures+summary for Cairo.  Also, we added some audio and short video to the site.  Without streaming abilities yet at Yahoo! Hosting Services it requires some big downloads so best for those of you with high speed connections -- but we like the content.  Check out bugling/dogs at the River Club, ants in the Amazon, and elephant showering in Ngala.  Be sure to check past status for other update detail over the last couple weeks, including Cape Town and Bailey.
3/18/01: We have completed the Johannesburg page, and have added pictures+summaries for Victoria Falls (Zambia & Zimbabwe), and Cairo.  We will update those pages with text but wanted to get the pictures online asap.  We also made some updates to Cape Town (VAT detail, kluffing, etc).   We added a great picture of Bailey sent from home. Be sure to check past status for other update detail over the last couple weeks.
3/07/01: We have updated through most of South Africa including Cape Town, Ngala Safari, and Sun City (we stayed in Cape Town for 16 days!!)  Be sure to check past status for other update detail in the past couple days.
3/05/01: We have updated through Cape Town (we stayed in Cape Town for 16 days!!)  Added some comments on Kilimanjaro page (about 18 hour world record climb), and a real map of a 6 day route.  Added Valentine's Day picture to Nairobi page.  Updated all past/futures dates on trip schedule. Also added shortcut below to jump directly to a page.
2/14/01: We have now updated the web through the Kilimanjaro climb.  We might make minor fixes, but generally all pages are complete.  Have updated 'Best and Worst', 'Languages' pages, and add 'In Review'.
2/13/01: We were without phone service for 2+ weeks!! CURRENTLY IN PROCESS of updating all world trip pages (finally!) with text and detail through the Kili climb -- will be cleaning up through 2/15/01 -- will be completing/correcting certain pages/areas through then.  Added 'Best and Worst', 'Languages' pages.

 

And our record of Trip Status entries:

 

Past Trip Status Entries

 

07/16/01: We are back home and done with our trip!  We have spent the last 3 weeks of the in the United States, visiting our relatives in Los Angeles, Vermont, and Massachusetts.  We are quite ready to sleep in one bed for more than 4 days for the first time in 6 months!
06/29/01: We are back in the US!  We had significant technology issues the last 3 weeks of the trip (laptop dead, palm dead, camera limited functionality), so we could not keep the web updated.  The trip was awesome, but it is also nice to be back home.  We will update web over the next couple weeks.
05/31/01: We have been in New Zealand for the last 2 weeks, first in the North Island and now in the South island.  We have driven thousands of kilometers through the wonderful country of New Zealand, attempting to do as many activities as possible, given the off-season weather.
05/17/01: We leave Sydney for Auckland tomorrow morning.  We plan to spend the next 2-3 weeks in New Zealand.  We spent the last two days in Sydney, enjoying the perfect weather and the native English language (soooo nice).  We did not do much in Sydney on this pass, because we will be back here to explore it with Kristen's sister in a few weeks.
05/14/01: We leave Tokyo for Sydney (via Taipei, Hong Kong) tomorrow -- very long day/night of flying.  We decided to leave Tokyo a couple days early so that we could spend more time in Australia and New Zealand.
05/08/01: We leave Hong Kong tomorrow for Osaka, Japan, then Kyoto.  We plan to see Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Tokyo until May 17, when we fly to Sydney, Australia.
05/07/01:  We are in Hong Kong, China. We will likely head to Japan (or possibly Taiwan), on May 9th if we can get things organized.  We have decided to skip the rest of China, given US-China relations, and the effort and amount of time required to do it right.
05/02/01:  We are in the Golden Triangle area north of Chang Rai, Northern Thailand (border of Laos/Burma/Thailand) for 3 days.  We head to Hong Kong on May 5th.  We have decided to skip the rest of China (except for Hong Kong), given US-China relations, and the effort and amount of time required to do it right.
05/01/01:  We are back in Bangkok, after a quick seven day trip through Cambodia and Vietnam.  We head to the Golden Triangle area in Chang Rai, Northern Thailand (border of Laos/Burma/Thailand) tomorrow for 3 days.  We head to Hong Kong on May 5th.  We have decided to skip the rest of China (except for Hong Kong), given US-China relations, and the effort required to do it right.
04/15/01:  We are in Mumbai (Bombay), India, after a couple weeks in Nepal and Tibet, and then New Delhi.  We leave for Bangkok early Monday (4/16) morning.
04/12/01:  We have just returned to New Delhi, after a couple weeks in Nepal and Tibet.  We are trying to re-schedule our Mumbei-Bangkok flight sooner (currently 4/20), so it is not clear when we leave India.
4/2/01:  We have been in Kathmandu, Nepal, for 3 days, and leave for a long drive into Tibet for the next 4 nights/5 days.  We might get to Everest Base Camp after all!  We will be back in Kathmandu April 7, then leave for Pokhara, Nepal on April 8.
