“I couldn’t possibly go travelling, I’d get bored!”

When a friend said this to us recently, we were more than a bit shocked. We’d had a cracking time. But thinking about it… maybe others would also think it was boring? Maybe some would find it one big world of pain? Others perhaps others would find our journey the best thing since sliced bread? For us, careering from one hostel to the next, taking night buses to the middle of nowhere and never knowing what insect or animal is going to cause the most problems for that day had both its ups and downs – but overall it was one of the greatest experiences we’ve had to date.

Anyway, to help you make up your own mind, we kept a one liner daily diary of our year away. Hopefully this is useful for anybody planning a similar route and will set some expectations or give some ideas on your own travel route!

Rough Itinerary… detail to be made up en route!

We have now put together our draft itinerary! Which will no doubt change but at least we’ve got a plan! It’d be fantastic if you could come and visit us wherever we might be, and if you’re planning on sharing a hostel with us we can guarantee accommodation will be very reasonable! ;) Also, if you know anybody particularly friendly (who isn’t into cannibalism or kidnapping) or any recommendations then please let us know.

PS – Our first flight is booked… Heathrow to Rio 21st May… another step forward! :)
