About our trip

39 countries in 10 months – that’s the plan.  We will travel by plane, train, automobile. Then there is the ship, bicycles and our own two feet (let’s home not from any break downs).  

Stage 1                 China to Russia via train tour

Stage 2                 UK to Italy (around Europe) via 4WD

Stage 3                 Italy to South Africa via 4WD

Stage 4                 South America, Cuba, Mexico and USA Western Coast via plane and local transport

Leaving home...


Stage 2 and 3 will see us live in our Toyota Landcruiser.  We will drive and explore through the day, shower in the pop up tent before the sun goes down so the water is hot, cook using our portable weber, fridge and built in kitchen (thanks to Waldu), eat under our retractable canopy on our folding table & chairs and clean in the kitchen sink…yes, we are taking the kitchen sink.  Then we will rest on top of the car in the rooftop tent, before rising with the birds and starting all over again. Oh, the toilet is portable too.

    I had no idea that this was an adventure of such epic proportions – you will never say when your old “I wish I had done …….” you will have done it. Have a ball .. Odette
