Itinerary Update

or, what does "Round The World" mean for airlines?

As you can see by the map above (and the basic itinerary that Anne posted earlier), our plan was to loop down through South America, through New Zealand and Australia, up through SE Asia/China/Japan, and then back across the Pacific to Seattle. However, based on Anne's initial research into Round The World (RTW) tickets, the rules apparently state that we can't cross the Pacific twice...(once to NZ, once back to Seattle). So, other plans are now in the works...

At this time, we're looking at our options to take the Trans-Siberian Railway from Beijing, across Mongolia and through Russia, ending in Moscow, where we could head up to Finland/Norway/Sweden, and then fly across the Atlantic to the US. A bit drastic of a change, but exciting to think about. Updates to come on feasibility and costs...
