If you want to see our planned route in (a lot) more detail, you can view the Google map below (dark blue lines are flights, light blue are busses or driving, yellow lines are boat trips, purple lines are organized tours and pink lines are trains – blue dots are the places we plan to stay and green dots places we pass through en route. Click on any of these to see when we expect to be there)
