Men of Action!

There is a lot to plan when contemplating a drive around the world...

We all met last night and were confronted that old familiar question - on an unfamiliar quest...

Are we men of words or men of action?

Perhaps the most significant aspect to this question is that it can only be answered by the guy in the mirror. (You didn't just think of the Michael Jackson song, did you? You should be so embarrassed!)

Assignments have been given, responsibilities delegated, and the path is laid! It can be fun to converse endlessly about the places we might go or how the path might deviate... but better still will be the victory of the moments when we have acted.

To Mongolia!

Allow me a quick diversion because it is fun! I read a poem this morning and blogged about it. The poem is Oh The Places You'll Go, by Dr. Seuss and how fascinating it is to think: Oh! The places we will go - on our trip.

Here is a list:

1. London, England
2. Lille, France
3. Brussels, Belgium
4. Luxembourg
5. Stuttgart, Germany
Nurnberg, Germany
6. Prague, Czech Republik
7. Vienna, Austria
8. Bratislava, Slovakia
9. Budapest, Hungary
Kosice, Slovakia
10. L'viv, Ukraine
11. Warsaw, Poland
12. Lida, Belarus
13. Vilnius, Lithuania
Minsk, Belarus
14. Moscow, Russia
Chelyabinsk, Russia
Petropavlovsk, Kazakhstan
Omsk, Russia
Novosibirsk, Russia
Kemerovo, Russia
Krasnoyarsk, Russia
Irkutsk, Russia
Lake Baikal, Russia
Ulan-Ude, Russia
15. Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
16. Beijing, China

(There will be plenty more since we are driving, but too small to mention)
