This is a follow up thread of the original one
Eggciting Journey Around The World part 1

For tracking purposes... Here is a copy of the itinerary from the first thread:

It all started somewhere around 15km from Madrid - this is where our heggro was born. From the early beginning he (or maybe 'she'? let's stay with 'it' then) was very curious of the surrounding world and liked to walk around and visit various places. And then quite unexpectedly, thanks to generous community on Dyxum, a great opportunity appeared for it - The Great Journey Around The World ...

All that was possible thanks to generous Dyxumers who offered the Egg a place to sleep and some guidance in their neighborhood:

And here is the map with all travel locations (BIG thanks to bms44974 for creating and updating it).

Now, to make the journey possible we need a few rules:

1) The journey is organized according to the list of participants published above (the order may change though, depending on situation),
2) The time of hosting Mr Egg should be around 3 days (and no more than a week),
3) Person who hosts Mr Egg should:
* posts his bunch of photos (announcing the visit),
* add a note in the Egg's passport,
* cut off a post mark from the incoming package and include it in the package sent to the next person,
* contact the next person on the list by PM (or e-mail) to get the address,
* after the visit is finished send Mr. Egg to the next person,
* announce sending it in the thread.
4) In case of any trouble or any doubt any admin/mod should be contacted.
5) All Dyxumers are encouraged to comment and discuss in this thread.

BTW, If anyone would still like to join us - please drop me (or any admin/mod) a PM.

Let's the journey begin!

(HELPFUL SUGGESTION: When unpacking the egg, keep all the foam packing together to make it easy when you are re-packing for posting to the next person.)[/QUOTE]

My first time checking this view and one of my rare times checking the photo forums (have always been in the equipment forums)
Very nice idea.

P.S. Thanks for hosting him in Indonesia, kolibri, nice to see pictures of Indonesia here XD

I believe that Mr. & Mrs. Egg are suppose to be on their way to me. I just arrived home from Germany and there is no package here, so I'm not sure what has happened. I know there was a mishap the first time it was attempted to be delivered to me and was returned to sender (package problem) and he was going to UPS it to me the second time. No word on that though.

Exhausted? He had a blast. Maybe he is lost because he is trying to get back to me on his own.

Hopefully the mystery of lost Eggs will be resolved soon. Otherwise...

I think he wants some time alone with Peggy

They were suppose to visit someone else before me, but that person never responded w/ an addy, so they've taken a detour to me now. I'm not following the list to well, so I will ask who they visit next when they are finished here.
