(Day 245) Up, up and away

Thursday Sept. 2, 2010

We've been planning this trip for over half a year. Tickets were ordered and a place to stay was confirmed, as was a rental car, since we like to explore the places we go to at our own pace, and sometimes well off the beaten path. The itinerary promised a long journey of almost 8,000 km/5,000 mi. This was one of the last scenes we saw as we sped away from the setting sun, on to our adventure.

NOTE: I found a reliable place to use the internet, but have limited access. Will try to post as opportunity permits.
