I'm finally underway for my round-the-world trip, and as I said in my last entry , I'm available for speaking on NetBeans RCP, IVR Speech Recognition, and other topics en route.
If you're interested in tracking my progress, regular updates will be in my personal blog .
I'm just posting now because I recently procured the tickets for the first half of my journey. My dates are not set yet, but the cities are. My general itinerary starts with a flight to Buenos Aires on March 12th. I'll be in Argentina and Chile for 5 weeks. Then, it's on to Athens and Crete. From Greece, I'll be going to Italy, Croatia, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Amsterdam, Germany, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, The Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, and India (Mumbai, Rajasthan, and Delhi). From there, the itinerary is not set, but it is likely to include Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. Beyond that, we've not decided.
We're looking to meet people who want to show us a bit of their home country, and maybe put us up on their couches as payment for an appearance at your local JUG or company forum :)
A few folks commented on my last post (specifically from South Africa and Italy). I'm sorry I didn't include better contact info in my last post. Blog comments leave me no way to get in touch with you, so I'll try this again: rich (dot) unger (at) gmail.
