Following close on the heels of Phase 1: The Japan Experience and Phase 2: The Long Route Home came Phase 3: Wanderlust!  See the itinerary


We'd originally planned to head off for a year, but having lived abroad for two years, and travelled for three and a half months already, we decided to pick a few places off our extensive wish list of destinations (Phase 4: Travels From Base Camp is already on the drawing board).  Making the choices was relatively easy, and there was only one place on our final list we couldn't get to (Tibet), due to issues with the tickets we got.  (That will definitely be part of Phase 4!!!)


Tom and I have been planning our travels since Uni (long before we heard about JET)...it was so exciting to finally do it!!!
