Where’s next

Alas for us the journey has had to pause. We spent 433 days travelling through Asia and had a ball but the funds ran out…As such we have returned to Australia to act like adults and get jobs so that we can save money for the next leg of our odyssey which is starting to gain a life of its own.

next plan


As you can see…our next leg will be to hit south and central America either starting in Mexico and heading south to Patagonia or the opposite way around…depending upon the weather in the month that we start.

In order to achieve this we will be settling in to learn some vital elements for our planned trip. The first of these is obviously to gain a working level knowledge of Spanish (apparently dos cerveza por favor is not enough) and the second is to learn to ride motorcycles (properly) The plan is to buy two motorcycles and make our way through the continent.

Anyway…watch this space.

    Hi Richard and Jill
    It was great to discover your blog as we are 6 weeks into a trip similar to yours.
    If you are interested we are: https://oldenoughtoknowbetterblog.wordpress.com/
    It has been reassuring to see we are not the only slightly older people out there!
    We started in Sri Lanka and are heading across India and SE Asia and eventually to New Zealand and Australia.
    Hope your new plans are coming along and any tips would be gratefully received.

    • Sorry for the delay… We got back and basically stopped blogging so I missed your message…but I found it and am now reading along with your exploits…

      Seems like you are having a ball…I have only read the first 2 months but I will have caught up tonight…

      It seems as though we have similar views in hating the touristy bits and my wife’s love for trains.

      Good journey.
