A trip of a lifetime...The Route


Excitement, fear, a much lighter bank balance; but it's now booked...six hours at STA travel and Russell, the agent, has the patience of a saint (helped with the odd Starbucks and funny stories).

Taking over a year, the trip across three continents, taking in over 20 amazing countries, with destinations that include:

  • Japan
  • China
  • Nepal
  • Tibet
  • India
  • Vietnam
  • Cambodia
  • Laos
  • Thailand
  • Malaysia
  • Indonesia
  • Bali
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Chile
  • Argentina
  • Paraguay
  • Peru
  • Ecuador
  • Brazil

Visas are ordered for China and Nepal and the adventure starts on 1st March 2011 !

The countdown begins...
