travelling the seven parts of the world

Around the World 2


View Around the World 2 in a larger map

This trip around the world took us on an epic overland journey. Unlike in our first trip around the world, which took us on a total of 33 flights, we wanted to keep the flying to a minimum and spend more time journeying overland, which was achieved, as we spent 6 weeks driving around USA and 2,5 months going overland from China to India, including 9 nights on the train, 8 days in a private car where public transport made no sense and 2 days in a bus starting in Xi'an, going to Pingyao, Datong, Beijing, Tai Shan, back to Beijing, Guilin, Chengdu, Lhasa, through Tibet to Nepal, to Kathmandu, Pokhara, Varanasi, Delhi, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Agra and back to Delhi.
