Tentative Travel Itinerary

With my travel date possibly being moved to early May or late April (reason for this is here in my Travel Dilemma post) I need to become serious about my travel itinerary.

This week I’m shining the spotlight on Sarah & Andrea over at They are off to travel from Asia through to Europe and seek out new adventures and generally just have a bloody good time.
