This is my first post on this forum so I thought I'd post about my Round the World Trip with my girlfriend.
We've have been thinking about this for over a year and trying to plan for quite a while. We're off in April and cannot wait!
A year away with no work! YIPPEE!
The basic route can be found HERE!!!
We'll be taking in:
USA - from April to November we'll be travelling from New York to Seattle in an RV, CLICK HERE to see the route we have pencilled
Japan - We arrive in Japan at the beginning of August, we'll be staying for 2 weeks (wish it was longer but Japan is expensive) and travelling from Tokyo to Osaka
China - Mid August we hit Shanghai, the original plan was to fly in to Bejing but the olympics are playing havoc with the flights there so we may travel overland, but will have to see nearer the time how hectic it is. We are planning on travelling to Xi'in, Hong Kong and down to Vietnam all overland, taking in the scenery on the way.
Vietnam - Still travelling overland we will be making our way through Vietnam to Cambodia, we have anywhere up to 3&1/2 months for the overland portion of the trip.
Cambodia - Travelling across to Thailand through Cambodia, again anything up to 30 days here.
Thailand - The final part of our overland trip takes up through Thailand and down to Singapore where we fly to New Zealand
New Zealand - From end November we have 1 month to travel from the South Island to the North Island overland, possibly buying a vehicle or by coach
Australia - Arriving here just in time for Christmas and NYE we will be staying in Sidney with a good friend of mine (who is currently my house mate!) before making a journey up towards Cairns, then flying to Perth.
India - The final leg of the journey will be in March and we will be travelling through India from Chennai to Delhi
That wraps up our year! You can view my blog by -snip-which should be kept updated en route.
Any comments and/or suggestion are appreciated!

Moderator comment: Welcome to TP Karl and Fran, the trip sounds amazing. However, please do not post personal blog links in the open Forums, it is against the rules. You may post the link in your personal profile. When you're in the RV in America, make sure to play Roger Miller's "King of the Road"......makes you feel like driving... Also, you might want to check out TP's blog section....we have some pretty good templates there. Thank you.
