Trip Costing and Back to the Future

To complete the 2010 blog I have done a short costing and included a retrospective chapter "Time Travel in Bali" linking our first trip to Bali in 1974 with the latest one a few weeks ago in 2010 visiting some of the same places spaced 36 years apart. I have also expanded Streaking through Greece to include more photo coverage, particularly of Corfu, so the entire journey is fully documented, and done a flashback of my visit to Jerusalem in 2000 to contrast it with the visit we just completed.

Here is a short costing of the 2010 trip so you can see how the expenses panned out:

Total Costs for 2 people 90 days travel = $25416.84 NZ
($1 NZ = $0.71 US)

Quantas One World 16 stop air ticket $9690.40
