The When and Where

To start off our huge 2 month journey, we fly to Beijing, China on April 6th (tonight!) with a couple of hour stop over in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After spending a few days shopping and checking out the sites of Beijing we fly over to Shanghai on the 10th to continue the shopping and site seeing trend.

The Cruise...
After a week in China we move on to the cruise, boarding the Ocean Princess on April 13th. This will be the biggest part of our overseas adventure, taking up a whopping 44 days! We'll port hop across 15 different countries, docking in a total of 20 ports. The map below shows our complete route (however, due to the current issues in Eqypt, we are now stopping at Aqaba, Jordan instead of Cairo, Egypt).
