RTW Ticket is booked

It’s done! We booked our RTW ticket last week. Even though we spent countless hours (I’m guessing around 30h) researching in the Book & Fly tool from Star Alliance to find the perfect route. Someday I might write a post about the process of defining the perfect route for a RTW trip.

For today I just want to inform you about our trip and the route we will take.
