Show trip route
Ahmit, the Israeli guy I already mentioned. He is 20 and is traveling for a couple of months before heading back to Israel to be recruited into the army for 4-5 years. He speaks perfect English and both Nikki and I thought he was American. He lived in Cyprus and Tokyo each for two years while growing up, because his parents worked in the Israeli embassies there. He is sporty, good-natured, and adventurous.
Emma and Mark. They are 28 and 35, respectively, and they are from England. They both finished work contracts recently and are traveling for six months -- they are just starting their trip. She's promised to send me a link to her blog so I'll put it in my favorite websites list and you can follow their journey as they continue after I return. Besides me and Ahmit, Emma was the most outgoing of our group. Mark is a bit quieter but they are both super nice and friendly.
Emilie & her boyfriend. I'm afraid I never did get some of the folk's names, it's embarassing to say! They are 23 and 26 and are traveling for several weeks. They are from Lucerne, Switzerland (French speaking). They didn't speak a ton of English so I didn't get to know them that well.
Stephanie & Andre. They are from Brussels, Belgium and are traveling for 2 weeks. They aren't married but they have a 2-year-old boy who is very cute. I can't remember their exact ages but somewhere in their 20s. They are both friendly, if a bit quiet.
Daniele and his girlfriend. They are from Italy and are 34 and 39 (actually Daniele turned 39 on the trip) and they are travelling for a couple of months. They also didn't speak English but were quite friendly and I talked to them a bit about Italy.
Nikki and me. :)
