Around the World in 90 Days

don't be jealous…

Half Way!

Half way through!  One thing that has surprised me on this trip is the trouble with internet.  Everywhere we go there is working internet before we arrive, and is troublesome once we are there.  We are camping at Uluru and the internet was down until NOW and we have to be at the airport in 1 hour.  Brilliant.

So quick post.  I have been keeping statistics on what we have been up to.  Here it goes:
