I'm still on course for my planned rtw trip in May 2014 - putting everything in order: workwise I have a year off with a job held open for my return, assuming I don't take longer - Which might happen!
Finances coming together. Still thinking about the bike to do it on, but choices being narrowed. As for the proposed route, my thinking is
Into France, Germany :down through Italy:
Cross to Greece, Turkey :
around or across the Black Sea into Russia:
Cross Kazakhstan to the Karakoram Highway:
Pakistan, India, Nepal:
Not sure of the situation with Myanmar - if not possible - fly to Bangkok:
Visit my brother in Cambodia:
Back into Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia:
Australia: east coast to visit a friend in Melbourne
New Zealand south and north Island:
Cross the Pacific to west coast USA: cross to the east coast - route yet to be decided. get back to blighty from there
All a bit vague I know, but anyone see any massive issues with that proposed route?
