Our adventures so far…. the first year

July 2012 to June 2013

One year into our travels, we quickly realised we were travelling behind schedule. It took a year to get half way around and so now we have a year to get home across the other half!  You can read about our decision in our blog  ‘Breaking News…

Here’s where we went in the first year …….

You can see a summary in pictures of our South American trip in our blog  ‘9 months, 9 countries….’
