Our Journey Maps
The journey maps below show where we’ve been on our travels since our adventures to Kathmandu and beyond began in November 2008.
Because we have re-visited some of the same countries and places over the course of seven years on the road, our route is a bit of a tangle so we have split it by year, most recent year first.
There’s still a lot on each map but you can zoom in, move around the maps and explore the places we have visited in each particular country. If it’s still too small, you can click on the symbol on the top right corner of each map. Go on – have a look around our maps!
