"Kingdoms and Cultures of Eurasia" Trip Takes Off!

It has been a nice 30 days since I returned from New Zealand and Australia. I loved being at home with my wife, although I also went to the Bears Ears National Monument with guy friends for four days and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument with Helen for five days, both in southern Utah. It was interesting to visit those Monuments after what I consider to be the illegal downsizing of the monuments' boundaries in December. More on that in a later post.

Today I am in Lisbon, Portugal to begin a 22-day adventure to nine different countries. The trip is called "Kingdoms and Cultures of Eurasia by Private Jet." For the next 22 days, it will by my pleasure to attempt to add to the name of the trip slightly, wanting to call it "Kingdoms, Cultures, and Landscapes of Eurasia." You can view the itinerary here.

In a few hours we'll board our private 757 jet and journey toward our first stop - Vilnius, Lithuania. I'll be visiting five new countries on this trip and Lithuania will be the first of these. Thank you for reading and fasten your seat belt!
