Around the World with Marsha & Joel

We’re about to set off on a couple of new adventures, so we’ve decided to start this new Travel Blog that we’ll continue as we make our way from place to place (rather than a new blog for each trip). If you’re interested in following along put your email in the box to the right and click “subscribe” for email alerts (you can always ignore the alerts or cancel if it gets a bit too boring). You’ll get an email each time we post.

And…. Send us a comment when you subscribe so we’ll know who is following us. That way we can personalize some of our plans based on our knowledge of your exquisite taste.

We’ll make a point to limit our words a bit and let the photos (and videos) do more of the talking. Promise.

Our first stop will be Arizona in March…then to Northern India and Nepal in April. We hope you’ll join us. If you do please feel free to comment and give us some advice if you know something about where we’re headed.

    Yes, we’ve been to India, but looks like you didn’t need any tips.:-))
    (sorry missed your reply earlier)

    We took an 8 day highlight tour with Smartours in 2010, the year before Turkey.
    My goal was simply the Taj Mahal but also amazed by the whole experience.

    I also agree completely with your observations….grinding poverty, but amazing history.

    Really enjoyed your posts. Lots of interesting details documented.

      Thanks you guys. We are having a great trip. Unfortunately my brother and sister-in-law couldn’t make it. That was our initial motivation in going back to this great area. We agree with your tips about Phoenix, and, since this is our third trip to the area, we’ve done ’em all! We’re sure the upcoming visit of your special group will be fabulous; they are quite a wonderful family. Also hope we all can get together soon.
