Tickets are booked!!!! Were lucky enough to score First/Business class tickets on American/Quantas/Hawaiian Airlines for the entire trip, including those 15+ hour legs....
Once-in-a-lifetime "bucket list" trip end of summer next year!! (beginning of Australian spring).
It will be almost 6 weeks - 40 days - all one-way flights - here's the map (I did different colors because all the crisscrossing in one color was very confusing):
And here's the list of the major points -
Charlotte to Sydney
Sydney to Darwin
Darwin to Melbourne
Melbourne to Adelaide
Adelaide to Cairns
Cairns to Auckland, New Zealand
Auckland to Honolulu
Honolulu to Charlotte!!!
I'm so excited!!! Can't ya tell??
