The packing begins....


O
nce again, my "suitcase" will be my trusty Eagle Creek backpack - small and lightweight which makes it manageable for me to carry. This will be important as most of our travel within both Turkey and Croatia will be by bus. I can't imaging lugging along a 26" pullman suitcase around as we schlep back and forth between pensions/hotels and various bus stations.

I have grown to really love my backpack. Only problem is that deciding what to take with me is always a challenge since space and keeping the weight down are major considerations.

Soar like an eagle....


O
r maybe that should be "scream like a banshee" .....as Lei and I each hurl ourselves off the edge of a mountain and soar above open waters.

Yep. I don't know how I did it, but I managed to convince Lei to go paragliding. It's going to be hard for most of our friends to believe that we're actually going to be doing this. If you were to line up a bunch of people and ask any of our friends to pick out the two that you thought would want to paraglide, we would NOT be the ones picked...I can guarantee you that!
