I love to travel, and an RTW trip is one of the things that a travel nut has just gotta do. Join me for this frequent-flier-mile-fueled trip: some travelogue and some photos, around the world in (actually, just by chance!) 80 days.
First here's a world map with my route marked on it. My stops are numbered, and I've shown which of them have a page (or more) of photos. You can click on the map to get a bigger view in a separate window (though your browser may shrink it to fit your window; in that case, try right-clicking on the map to open it with another program and/or saving it to a file first).
Below the map are links to the photo pages. Click on a photo or its caption to see that page.
