Around the World by Private Jet

AROUND THE WORLD BY PRIVATE JET

WITH DARTMOUTH ALUMNI TRAVEL

AND TCS & STARQUEST EXPEDITIONS*

OCT. 29 TO NOV 19, 2013

I have been an enthusiastic traveler since my childhood, when I first read  Richard Halliburton’s wonderful Complete Book of Marvels, with its pictures of the author swimming in the Panama canal.

On Oct. 30, I take off for a three-week trip as an academic lecturer on a trip by private jet around the world. This trip is open to alumni from Dartmouth, Princeton, University of Virginia and other colleges, universities, and programs. I will be serving as one of three guest lecturers on the trip. The others are Alan Mann of Princeton and Fred Diehl of University of Virginia.

Our destinations include: Machu Picchu, Easter Island, Western Samoa, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Angkor Wat, Jaipur-Agra (and the Taj Mahal), the Serengeti (and Ngorongoro Crater), Petra (Jordan), and Fez, Morocco. I will be delivering five lectures in the aisle of the jet.

What follows is my account of this trip. Please note that in order to get the posts in reverse chronological order, I have had to place erroneous dates in the left hand column. The heading dates are the correct ones for each entry. You can expand smaller pictures by clicking on them.
