    Can you tell me if we can still take the Kauai helicopter excursion on Sept. 17?

    Wow Alan, that makes things very complicated. I would not want to leave Johannesburg airport to go to an hotel. I would not want to stay around Johannesburg longer than I had to, it's nice but some people have mentioned being stuck in elevators with shady people, and I did not feel too safe there either. All that plane changing means more chance of lost luggage. Our luggage arrived 24 hours late in Tanzania and that was with only one plane change. Nairobi airport, I don't like it. But great to give roz47 lots of ideas and options.

    This info was based on a quick search and I was a bit surprised about the routing through Jo'burg on the return and long layover in ADD. Unlike the LAX routing, the Ethiopian website routing for my personal "when-if" for B/SA/Z starts in Dulles (IAD). The return flight from CPT makes a quick stop for gas (no deplane?) at GBE (Sir Seretse Khama International Airport in Gaborone, Botswana) and has only a 2+45 layover in ADD. It totally avoids Jo'burg in both directions which is a good thing from everything I have heard (though they are different, Schiphol and Frankfort have their own set of issues). I'm not sure why ET's Capetown to LAX return routing stops at Jo'burg. The source of my info was ET's website, so it might be possible to get my return routing (CPT-GBE to ADD) then ADD - (DUB) - LAX. When we stopped for gas in Dublin it was early morning and still dark. We didn't even pull up to the terminal and were airborne again in about an hour. Many folks slept right through it. Anyway, as you say I was just making the point there are options. But, without knowing what is important to Roz47, it is hard to get specific. Since my wife is not a big fan of flying, I normally look for (in this order): comfort- business class/full lay flat seats and shortest enroute times (with fewest/shortest layovers), then cost. Cost is not a big concern yet- at least not until my kids' inheritance runs out : )

    For the most part, seas were calm on Adriatic. We did experience rougher seas as we approached Dubrovnik and tender could not bring guest speaker to ship. We repositioned to nearby dock where speaker arrived and later we disembarked for tour of the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik. We also used tenders from ship to tour the island of Hvar. Hope this information is helpful.

On April 25, 2015, during the off-season of our Northern India & Nepal itinerary, Nepal was struck early on a Saturday morning by a powerful earthquake. Measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, the quake’s epicenter was some 50 miles away from Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital city. Images of crumbled buildings, dangling wires and cables, and ...

Given the great speed at which we can routinely travel these days – by jet aircraft, high-speed rail, modern trans-oceanic cruise ships, etc. – the idea of circumnavigating the globe within 80 days may seem trite… and certainly not nearly as daunting as it did back in 1873, when the great science fiction pioneer Jules Verne's cl...
