After long discussions about pros and cons of planning a route for a world trip, we decided to plan a route and pre-book flights. We still think that the other option of just booking your first flight and taking the rest as it comes sounds very exciting! Yet we want to discipline ourselves a little bit and thus planned at least some key countries we want to see. Here is the raw flight plan as it stands before the trip.
In the interactive route map below, you can follow the actual route in more detail. We will add the locations we have been to as we go along.
