"Tourist capture the image of a well-known place in a photo but miss its essence; the anti-tourist dismisses the place as a cliche and misses the whole thing; while the traveler grasps its majesty."
Okay, so there's two parts to this, the planned part, which we've paid for and have tickets, and the unplanned part.

Okay so from there the plan gets rather hazy. But here goes:
From Singapore, we travel North to Thailand.
Perhaps stopping in Malaysia on the way North.
From Bangkok (Thailand) we might jump on a flight to Vietnam for a week depending on prices.
After returning to Thailand we fly to Nepal for trekking through the Himalayas.
Onward to Delhi, India.
Next plan says fly to the Middle East, but that will change if it's not a bit safer and then we would either reschedule or avoid Egypt and Israel.
Fly South to Cape Town, South Africa for some Safari, then North to Mozambique to visit our friend Pip.
After South Africa, we take a flight from Johannesburg to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Go South to the glaciers, then West to Chile. Head up to Peru and Equador and then a flight to Rio Di Janerio, Brazil.
After this we should be running low on cash so it's back to Europe for the final 3 months.
Basically the summary is:
South Pacific- 2 weeks
New Zealand- 3 weeks
Australia- 1 month
South East Asia- 2 months
Nepal/India- 1 month
Middle East- 1 month
South Africa/Mozambique- 1 month
South America- 2 months
Europe- 3 months
That's it? Wanna go?
