This blog sets out to record the experiences of my 58 days of travel around the world; from my departure on Wednesday October 24th until return on Friday December 21st.
This is a great adventure which will take me to
- three continents (South America, Europe and Asia),
- six countries (Argentina, Uruguay, Germany, Spain, France, Andorra, and Japan),
- a British Overseas Territory (South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands)
- plus Antarctica.
Outside South Georgia Island and Antarctica I have booked myself into accommodation which offers free WiFi. Therefore, I expect to be able to put together a daily record of my adventures and discoveries. The blog will not only include a written record of these travels but also a selection of photos to show you something of the world I have been inhabiting.
I will not have access to free WiFi for almost 16 days when I sail to and from Antarctica; it can be possible to access WiFi on board but the hourly rate is prohibitive. In addition the connection is via satellite and I have been informed that uploading photos may be impossible. I know you will want to see the glories of the landscape, the seascape and the flora and fauna and therefore I won’t be posting new stories to the blog during that sea trip. However, I expect to write 15 days of blog while on board and have it prepared to send when I return to Argentina – I imagine this will come as a massive information dump on Monday 19th November.
I hope that my technology doesn’t fail, and that I don’t drop and lose my photographic devices overboard or get smashed by an angry seal – I want you to be able to look forward to seeing some sensational images.
A selection of global views are provided below so you can get your bearings. Each contains a hand drawn line to give you the most general of an idea where I am travelling – I have no idea of actual flight or shipping paths so my route will be different.
