August 2011 - May 2012

Year Six! We started out with a Five Year Plan, but if our health holds out, perhaps this will be the beginning of our Second Five Year Plan. We've grown very fond of life on the road, living out of a suitcase, avoiding housework, cooking and carrying keys. Will we be able to stay put in one place ever again?

We started Year Six in New York and then flew out of JFK on the 10th Anniversary of September 11, 2001. Our rough plan is to travel from Iceland all the way to South Africa with many, many stops in between. As in past years, we'll keep our itinerary flexible in order to take advantage of windows that open, when doors close.

(NT) When you see this in front of an entry title, it means that I have posted the location and labelled the photos, but haven't written any text as yet. We're busy travelling for Year Seven but I do plan to get all the writing done eventually.

If you sign up for my update notices (see right hand side of this page) I will let you know when the text is posted and you will then be able to read all about our adventures.


If you haven't seen my other journals, you can access them using the drop-down menu at the top right.

NOTE You can click on the links below the Home Page map for a detailed regional map of the countries we visited. This will give you a better view of our route and the cities we toured.
