Round-the-world trip: Nov 2014 – Jan 2015 – part 0

In November 2014, G (then fiance) and I embarked on our dream trip: a 71-day round-the-world trip.

The trip was sparked by a desire to visit my hometowns in Indonesia and Australia, and given how far we would have had to fly from Chicago (where we were) anyway, we decided to make a few stops along the way.

The timeline of the trip also nicely coincided with the Indian wedding of one of our favorite couples in the world, Jason and Amruta, so we wanted to do a stopover in India after Indonesia and Australia. We booked the tickets on Star Alliance, which worked out really well for us - it ended up being not much more expensive than a flight to Australia, Indonesia, and India would have cost us, while allowing us to make extra stops with virtually no cost.

By the end of this extensive trip, we had decided and finalised our move to Australia, making the trip an even more epic round-the-world trip, and definitely a life changing one.

This blog post is the first in a series that captures our adventures around the globe between November 2014 and Jan 2015.
