    Well the wife and I are sitting in fairbanks airport waiting to board. Our first safari has finally arrived! It will take us 2 days to get to Africa but I believe its going to be worth it!

    Well we made it to germany. We have a 11 hour layover so we are just going to relax. That's the worst part about flying out of alaska. No matter what you are going to have an overnight somewhere.

    The travel is all a part of it. Now that I'm not traveling every day for business, I kind of look forward to it. It's not every day that you get to ride in a vehicle that does 600 mph at 40000 feet! The truth is, the travel is a chore, but so worth it. Happy trails and send us a trip report!

    We all dread the ride, but like us you will know that it is worth every minute of it. In a few days you will be planning your next trip. The next time though it won't be so hard to convince your wife. ENJOY YOUR ADVENTURE!!
