Our Route

Below is the route we propose to follow for the duration of our travels. However, it is important to note that this plan tries to account for more than seventy days on the road. We are sure to run into unforseeable adventures that will cause us to deviate from what is below. Furthermore, it is in the spirit of this trip that we welcome such changes with open arms.

In order to gain a better idea of where we are at present, please follow us through our maps and photographs (both pages are updated at least once a week).
