Bad Idea Jeans...

Good news: We now have posts up for the Swiss and French Alps. A bit late but worth the read. Even better news is that we'll have our Ireland adventures up soon as well (we hope we hope). Nothing like (relatively) cheap Dublin ghetto internet cafes to get the creative juices flowing. In the meantime a funny story from the less sexy part of the trip: trip planning.

Becca and I have been starting early discussions regarding the second major leg of our trip and contemplated figuring out a ground route (instead of flying) from Turkey to India and SE Asia in December. We started to get kind of excited about the 'romance' of overland travel and all the things we would see and experience on a trip like that. However, after actually consulting a map, we decided this might not be such a good idea after all. Not so much because of the weather (which would likely be dicey in the mountains at that time of year) but because potential routes would have us going through Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and possibly Kashmir. Somehow, I don't think this route would pass the Mom test. :-)

Hope all is well. And for none of you that care, the Ducks are 2-0. Quack, Quack.

I can't leave that Duck comment unchallenged, Brian. I attended the Oregon State - Boise State game last weekend and had to sit through a freakish pea-sized hailstorm. But the Beavers won, and they are 2-0 also. Go Beavs!!

i agree... GO BEAVERS... ;-)
anyways, guys, just made my way through all 1013 of your pictures posted on flickr so far... have also been reading your blog semi-religiously, greatly aided by its rss-feed... wonderful stories and views on things, gorgeous pictures to go with 'em... have had many a chuckle along the way... want to wish you all the best for the rest of your travels, wherever and by whichever road (or interesting mode of transport) they may take you... keep having fun along the way...

Make it 3-0. Bring on the Trojans...
