PostSubject: Around the World in 800 Days   Sat May 03, 2014 11:01 pm

We left the UK in May 2012 and drove up through Scandinavia to the Arctic Circle and then we drove across Russia to Lake Baikal before heading South into Mongolia. Whilst in Mongolia we received news that both my parents had been diagnosed with Cancer. We turned around and drove back to the UK in 15 days.

Four months later my parent’s treatments were going well. In February 2013 we decided to head back out on the road. Given the situation we decided not to venture too far. A no commitments route down to Morocco was made, if we needed to return home quickly we could.

We spent 3 months in Morocco and a further 2 in Europe. In August 2013 we evaluated our options and made the decision to head home once more.

In December 2013 Emma and I got married and then unfortunately just one month later my mother passed away.

Adventure preparations are well under way for phase 3 of our around the world journey and the countdown has begun...

Setting off from England on July 21st, we’ll weave our way down through South-Eastern Europe; Belgium, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey and Cyprus (phew!). By early 2015 we should be venturing into the lesser-travelled Caucasus region through Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Crossing the Caspian Sea by ship we’ll arrive in Kazakhstan and pick up our original route through the ‘Stans and Iran before voyaging into Asia.

Here's a little promo film we made, so you can get a feel for our adventure…

To celebrate our website has had a serious overhaul….

Much love.

Andy and Emma

Some pretty narrow streets in that promo film, you wouldn't want anything wider than the Toy. Good video though, the world can be a wonderful place.

Will follow progress on the next stage with interest.

Two days of driving on Mountain tracks to get there, anything larger and we would have had to drive two days back. Ironically they was also no-where to turn around!

Had the same sort of thing myself, albeit less of a timescale. At times you really need a hover car.
