Round-the-World Holiday, June 23 - July 28, 2003
After eighteen months of living in Australia without a visit home, I couldn't put off seeing the fam any longer. Thus Rodd and I set out to the travel agent with the aim of procuring return tickets from Sydney to Chicago for sometime around the 4th of July. We were shocked to learn that a single return fare was going to cost us about $2000AU. As we pondered our options, Rodd asked the agent how much a "round-the-world" ticket would cost. These allow you to make a certain number of stops as long as you keep going the same direction around the globe. It turns out that we could get them for $3000AU each. "Why not?" we said. "We haven't had a proper vacation in years and we'll be spending almost that much anyway." So we bought the tickets and started making plans.
