View: RTW galleries

 

To celebrate our quitting the rat race, we are taking a “round the world” (RTW) trip later this month.  The map above shows our route.  We will hit 8 countries in all with more than one stop in some.  We decided to see some nations that were islands that we’d never be able to take Tigger to and a few countries we thought we might not ever travel close enough to in Tigger.

Here is the code directory to make sense of the map:

MNL Manila [Ninoy Aquino Intl], PH
