Full Circle April 6, 2008

I returned back to Dublin Saturday evening after flying for over 20 hours from Auckland to LA to London and then finally back to Dublin.  I began my trip around the world on March 9th and in 21 days made a full circle back to Dublin.  Here’s the details:

  • March 8:            Dublin to London, London to Shanghai
  • March 9-14:      Travel around Shanghai visiting businesses and sightseeing
  • March 14-17:    Byron Bay for Ann and Adam’s Wedding
  • March 17-20:    Nelson, Abel Tasman, Marlborough
  • March 20:          Christchurch stopover
  • March 21-26:    Queenstown
  • March 26-29:    Auckland and Waiheke Island
  • March 29:          Fly to LA
  • March 30:          Fly LA to London then home to Dublin

Looking through this list, it seems like a pretty intense trip, but actually it was one of the most relaxing vacations.  The reason being is that no activities, other than in Shanghai and Ann’s wedding were planned in advance.  This allowed for endless options and wild spontaneity – as seen in the pictures below.  Next up on the travel adventures is Durham, North Carolina for the Duke University Rugby Tournament.  Hopefully, this time no one will end up with any black eyes.
