 Record of Trip

Record of out trip in spreadsheet form, with some dates and places estimated. All assumed mileages are based on approximate routes and Google Maps, or similar, mileages between places and not based on odometer readings.

No SatNav tracking available.

The timings, start and finish of the day, and lunch time are purely guesswork. Doing the trip again, I would fill the spreadsheet in daily, but things have changed since the trip.

The country column is the country you wake up in in the morning.

Navigate using the arrow keys, and look at the menu icons on the bottom right corner.

I reiterate, this is not contemorary, it is compiled more than 40years after the events. It is bound to have some errors.


 Also I have created an ESRI StoryMap. Thoroughly recommend that you look at this.

If you can't drag yourself away from this site, the StoryMap is also below, but better by following the link above.

Refresh 2021


Site refresh Easter 2021

I decided to give the site a bit of a refresh over Easter 2021 and install a new template and some additional functions. One of the things I didn't like about the old site was the delay in text appearing which probably meant some people left before the content appeared. This has been corrected now.
