Thanks so much for the kind words Becky! Feel free to reach out with any specific questions you may have about your trip. Happy travel planning!
What types of accommodations are you looking at that are taking so long to get back to you? Just curious. As for airfare, it really depends on the route. I'd check all your options - AirTreks, Indie, and searching prices of internal flights and compare.
When it comes to how long to stay in a particular country, it all depends on your family. We have found that moving slower, especially with kids in tow, is easier on everyone, and the slower you move, the cheaper it is. It's not so much how long you stay in a particular country either, but how long you stay in each city/destination. Moving every few days can get tiring real quick. I always recommend planning a few stays of a couple weeks or a month in one place just to be able to unpack your bags and slow down for a bit. It gives you a chance to breathe and slow down a bit so you don't get burned out.
Hope this helps, and let us know if you have any more questions!

Monica, if you are traveling alone, you probably want to sign up for the regular version of RTW30. You can do that here: http://www.bootsnall.com/rtw/30days
As for help with a RTW ticket, feel free to email me at adam at bootsnall dot com, and I can help you out.
Since we are new parents to a 5-month-old, we have little experience in this field. We just took our first weekend trip away with him in May, and the one biggest difference we noticed is how much more time we need to get anywhere and do anything. Gone are the days (at least for a few years) of just hopping in the car (or cab or train or bus) and heading to dinner, or for drinks, or anything, really. It just takes more time and planning to go anywhere (which is also true at home). So simple and obvious, but something that we didn't truly realize until we had a little one with us.
I'd be curious to know the age(s) of everyone's children who are participating? Anyone taking off on a RTW with a baby or child under 4 or 5?
Laura, where do you live that this is the case?
Hi Carrie. Thanks so much for joining us on RTW30! Road schooling is something we will be covering in depth during the program, but here are a few articles to get you started:
The forums were temporarily down for about 45 minutes after the first email went out. We apologize for any inconvenience as we had to work out a few kinks. We're up and running now - thanks for your patience!
Great, thanks so much for the insight, Paige! These resources will be helpful for the community here.
Thanks for the comment, Paige! Where did you get the daily budget number for food, lodging, etc.? I think that's a spot where a lot of people struggle - finding accurate daily costs in a particular country/city.
Also, could you share what smartphone app you use? We're always looking for good resources to share with everyone.
