Year 4: The Med/India/Sri Lanka

September 2009 - May 2010

We set off on our Year Four travels on 09/09/09. Stay posted as we start our 'Circle The Mediterranean' journey in Madrid. We have until May 4, 2010 to circumnavigate the 'Sea' but even that doesn't seem to be a lot of time. So many places to see, so many things to do, so many people to meet, so much food to eat!

When we learned of a family wedding in India in Dec 2009, we made a side trip away from the Med and then went further afield to Sri Lanka. Once the weather began to get a little warmer we returned to the Middle East to pick up where we left off. We spent a wonderful two weeks in Lebanon and then explored the whole of Tunisia. Morocco was better than we expected it to be and then we met up with our daughter Adia in Madrid. The ten days flew by, we rented a car and alternated a day trip out of Madrid with a day exploring the sights of this marvelous city. Now it's time to return to Canada for the summer and begin to make plans for Year Five!
