“To boldly go where no man has gone before “……we set off at warp speed , crash landing in Bangkok to plan this once in a lifetime adventure.
All trappings of responsibilities have been boxed away for twelve months at least. For those who have experienced moving its singularly the most exhausting experience ever !
After running around tying up last minute stuff i moved into a backpackers hostel (Hopp inn) to get a feel for what was ahead. My first night in my four by four box was eventful as i managed to drown myself by accidentally turning the shower on while brushing my teeth ! ( photos to be published later)
Aidan finished working on developing a pizza restaurant concept in Taiwan for a close friend and I entertained my brother for 6 days which brought me close to heaven ! or hell , depending which x your speaking too.
Over the last months we have done a lot of ground work especially with regard flights but we still had no luck with securing a workable itinerary .We decided to take a chance and head to Bangkok to see if our luck might change.
This was a very good decision as we manged to secure our tickets today. Our route is as follows:
Bangkok to Cairo
Cairo to Amman
Amman to Istanbul (overland to Iran ,Lebanon,Palestine and Israel depending on visa approvals etc ..
Istanbul to Madrid ( overland France ,Portugal , and Northern Europe yet to determine )
Madrid to Sau Paulo
Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires to Santiago
Santiago to Lima
Lima to Miami ( back down to Cuba )
Miami to Houston
Houston to San Francisco
San Francisco to Tokyo
Tokyo to Bangkok
Impressed !! So are we , that’s a RTW trip with an umbrella on top !
