Jeane and I are Packed and Ready to Go to Bhutan

Jump to last reply

We leave on Tuesday - renting a car, driving to JFK, and flying to Delhi via Frankfort on Lufthansa. 2 nights in Delhi, then a short flight to Paro, Bhutan. 11 nights in Bhutan, 5 stops(!) - lots of packing and unpacking, but 2 three-night stays, including time in the Bumthang valley to see 2 festivals. Then on to Bangkok for just one night, meeting up with Pook for dinner at Gaggan. Returning home via Beijing on Thai, and then on to Washington Dulles and Hartford on United - literally traveling around the world, all in business class, of course...

I have not labeled this thread a trip report, although I will try to post from time to time with updates. Internet access in Bhutan is sketchy. Our "official" trip report will be posted when I get home and have collected my thoughts. If Andy (Gpanda) were still around, he'd remind me that I have 2 weeks after returning until the penalties kick in...

Facebook poses another dilemma - I can post photos as I go, especially if I choose to take them with my cell. But I do prefer Smugmug, not only for its clean format and ease of downloading but also for a much better ability to arrange my photos in the order that I prefer. In addition to my cell, Jeane and I will have plenty of fire power as far as cameras are concerned. So it is likely the best photos will not be posted until we return. I will include a link to them in my trip report as I have in the past.

I'll try to answer questions as we go along knowing that for many on this board, this is unexplored territory. Lastly, thanks to Robbie (Robbietravels) for all her help and advice on Bhutan. On her recommendation, we are using Kencho of Snow White Tours who has been exemplary so far.
