    Awesome, sounds like a well planned trip. jealous?? yes sireeeee!!!

  3. annie & bad boy Says:

    Finally caught up with you guys, got home from our vacation and wanted to see what you two were doing, great site, great commentaries and you are certainly more courageous than I would be. It doesn’t sound easy getting around with not much English being spoken and customs being so different. Stay well, safe travels and have a super New Year, one that you will never forget!! (Ann, sp much for escaping cold!!)

    Hey George,
    Len was telling me about your world tour. I finally got a chance to check out the details on your adventure. All I have to say is…. Wow…. Great blog. Kind of makes you feel like a guest on your travels. Keep up the great posts.

    1. George and Ann Says:

      Thanks Tony, We are bogged down right now down under at the Aussie Open, I don’t have much time to do anything but sit in the second row at Hisense Arena and watch tennis for 10 hours. You would not believe how many solar water heaters the Chinese have on top of their dwellings and the sun hardly shines. Hope your Holidays were grand. Life is good!

      It was good talking to you in KNP. We saw a second leopard the next day at the water hole by the boulders where you were watching the Klipspringers.We are on a hillside in Wilderness now making our way down the east coast to Cape Town. We will be taking the train to JNB to fly out of South Africa. There is so much to see here and 6 weeks is not enough. We think that this is a good place to spend one of our future winters. You are fortunate to have such a beautiful country. Keep in touch. Quite a performance enterprise going! George

    I loved the little baby tiger and the elephants following the car. When are you coming home anyway?

    I was asking my mom what color your hair is. White or yellow?? How old are you? You look good with the colors of your hair.

    Write me back silly goof!

    Hi George and Ann!
    Your photos are amazing, I agree with what your friend Tony wrote – it feels as though I’m a guest on your trip around the world! What a great blog! Enjoy the last few legs of your tour, hope to see you in a couple of months!

    I was searching on the internet about how I would eventually purchase tickets to the Barcelona open in April. I will be in Barcelona during the time that the matches begin and came across your website during my browsing. Is it easy to simply purchase tickets at the tennis site in Barcelona in the morning and then stay for the day or do you suggest purchasing them prior to my departure from the US, and how? I am not sure if you still check this blog now that you seem to be back from these amazing travels, but any advice would do. Thanks! Happy new year!

    1. George and Ann Says:

      Hi Tali, We purchased 2 tickets for one day on the internet. I believe it was 2 weeks before the tournament, We did not know how popular the tournament would be. Nadal was originally scheduled to play, so we thought it would a sellout so we purchased as soon as we could. He eventually dropped out before the tournament started. We picked up our tickets at Will Call. At the entrance to the grounds were 2 ticket booths and we were the only ones at the booths 1 hour before scheduled play . It was extremely easy to purchase tickets at the grounds for future days. We purchased tickets up to the semis, that day we arrived at the Reale Tennis Club. Each day the stadium was not entirely filled, maybe 80% filled. It is a compact tennis venue and the grounds are crowded because of this. There were top notch clay court players in the draw but if Nadal or Federer were in the draw the ticket availability may have been different.
