For Rocco's consideration

I have the perfect itinerary for you using a Skyteam round the world ticket -

LAX-ATL-EZE on Delta - explore Argentina in early Feb

EZE-CDG on Air France - stopover for a few nights in the City of Light

CDG-AMS-JRO on Air France/KLM - your northern Tanzania safari (plus maybe Zanzibar)

JRO or DAR-AMS-BOM on KLM - late March/early April in India

BOM-ICN-SYD on Korean Air - Australia and perhaps a bit of New Zealand as well

SYD or AKL-ICN-LAX - return home sometime in May

Such a RTW ticket costs around $7000-$8000 in business class. Think of all the money you save over buying individual tickets to each destination Not to mention the nice chunk of miles you'll earn

It sounds fabulous. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of seven weeks minimum to do this trip the way I would like.

King George V Four Seasons, Paris (4)
Tanzanian Northern Circuit Safari and Zanzibar Extension including an initial overnight in Arusha (18)
India, including New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer (18)
Observatory Hotel, Sydney (4)
Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef (4)

Total nights of accomodation = 48 nights @ $375pp per night average = $36,000. Airfare = $14,000 for two persons.

Grand Total = $50,000.

Give me time, I am still young. This would be quite a 40th birthday present in 5.5 years!

As much as I laughed over the thread in which cooncat was leading a team of hookers---I have to say that this one made me cackle--oh yeah, a really loud, unpleasant sound -- but one that connotes HUGE laughter. Only Rocco could turn Patty's suggestion into an actual planned and priced itinerary.
