Our itinerary has been revised multiple times, but surprisingly not too drastically. For example, we knew we’d go to India, we just didn’t know when. And for the most part, we have arrived in many locations near the time we expected. What has mostly changed is that we have decided to slow down and take our time in some countries. Between that and trying to maintain an endless summer around the world, our departure and arrival dates have been slightly altered. The map and everything in bold in the chart below show you where we’ve been. Placemarkers on the map indicate our point of entry for that country or region. If you click on the placemarker, you’ll see which cities we’ve visited. Enjoy exploring our route, and let us know if you have suggestions for upcoming destinations!
