When we started planning the itinerary, we asked each team-member to make a list of the countries she or he wanted to visit. We ended up coinciding on most of the countries; many were 3rd world countries, countries where we have family or friends and countries we have always wanted to visit. However, we also made the condition that we wanted to visit all the five continents and take the Trans Siberian railway back to the west. The chosen itinerary was finally adjusted to our modes of transportation and our team’s joint desire of not visiting countries where we are not welcome.

We will start our round the world trip by shipping our car from Barcelona to New York. While the car is in transit, we will catch a plane from London to Johannesburg, rent a car and tour the natural parks of South and Mozambique. After spending some time in Mozambique, we will head south again to South Africa visiting Lesotho and Swaziland on our way to Cape Town, where we will take a plane to New York to continue our voyage by car.

In North America, we plan to cross the continent, possibly all the way to Oregon, visiting several major natural parks on our way and then turn south on the West Coast towards Mexico. We will cross Central America and catch the boat in Panamá to pass the Darian strait to reach Cartagena, Colombia. Then the plan is continue south following the Andes with a number of stops in Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina.

When we arrive at Santos, Brazil, we will decide whether to sell the car or to ship it back to Europe. The rest of the itinerary will be done by public transportation. From Santos, instead of flying directly to Japan, we will take a plane to Melbourne, Australia, allowing us to also see this continent. Japan is a very expensive country, and given the conditions and the limited budget we think we will have at that stage it is not unlikely that we will not go to Japan on this trip. Instead, we spend more time visiting those countries we are really interested in, and our mother has always wanted to go to Myanmar and India. In India, we will not only cross the North, but also go to the South, which apparently is very interesting and with opportunities to live the local life, granted that there are less tourists.

After visiting India, we will head to the North of China by train, passing by Nepal on our way to Tibet, on our way north as my mother and sister are very interested in all the Buddhist traditions. We will arrive in Beijing (China), where we will take the Trans Siberian railway, a dream we all have, all the way to Moscow (Russia), where we eventually catch a plane back to Barcelona or alternatively to Oslo (Norway).

Han Jacob og Carolina har “svangerskapspermisjon” til slutten av mars 2012 i Montevideo/Uruguay. Siden dere har lagt dette landet inn i reiseruten, hadde de sikkert syns det var kjekt å møte dere. E:mail adr. er: Vi, Bjørn og Elisabeth, drar fredag 7/10 på rundreise i Peru for deretter å dra til Montevideo på besøk til dem. Tilbake i Haugesund 2/11.
