Day 213

It's official!  We have a definite start date for our trip and have chosen a memorable day - Monday 13 April 2009 (Easter Monday).  So, allowing for a final family gathering over the Easter weekend, we will kiss everyone goodbye on Monday morning and begin our journey down.  We stop over in the UK for a final time (for a while at least ...) on Monday night and then, after crossing under the channel on Tuesday night, begin our journey through France for 1 week and Italy for another week.  Our first ferry crossing is from Brindisi, Italy to Patras, Greece, where we spend a week in Greece, 1 week in Turkey and 1 week in Syria.  From there we cross to Jordan and after spending 2 weeks in Jordan culture hunting and scuba diving, attempt our second ferry crossing from Aqaba to Nuweiba and on through Egypt.

So have you managed to find a way around the Egyptian carnet problem. If so I would be very keen to hear about it!

Hi Andrew

If you use the "contact us" link at the top of the page, you can send us an email directly (without it being posted here). Please can you send me your email address this way as, I must apologise, I've lost yours and I'll send you all the information.
