The Intrepid Itinerary!

If you fancy joining us...

sunny 23 °C


So after three weeks of languishing in Matarangi, Coromandel (catching snapper, squid and seagulls; and Chalky diving for scallops as Jac has the 'tough' job of manning the boat) and travelling back and forth to Aukalofa for Jac's round-eye oops we mean laser eye surgery... it's now only 6 days until we depart! Mavis, Jac's Mum is accompanying us for five weeks.

First stop is balmy Shoreditch, east London, where we rest at Jac's old flat named Club 66. We'll then fly to even balmier Belfast (Eddie Izzard being the attraction) before back to London... then begins our big adventure!

Here's our rough itinerary of where we hope to be... it's not exact and will may even veer off course as we discover that Jac's trail created solely by using Google Maps has glaring errors (e.g. India in July = hmmm).

December: Belfast, Morocco
January: Egypt, Jordan
February: Jordan Syria
March: Cyprus, Turkey
Apr, May, Jun: Central Asia (the Stans, Siberia, Mongolia)
July: Bhutan, Nepal, India,
Aug, Sep, Oct: Peru, Galapogas Islands, Columbia
Nov, Dec: Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia

As we've said, if you fancy joining us somewhere along the way, we'd love to have you. Chalky likes long walks along moonlit beaches and Jac loves trying bizarre and unpalatable foods.

We dunno how this blog works at this stage but we'll have fun updating it where and when we can!

Cheers and sláinte for now,
Jac & Chalky
