Route

Bereits einige Monate vor dem Start versuchten wir unsere einjährige Reise zu planen, was bei zwei eigensinnigen Köpfen wie uns nicht immer ein einfaches Unterfangen war und immer noch ist. Einig sind wir uns vor allem, dass wir uns nicht im Detail festlegen wollen. Die Reise wird also unter Umständen ganz anders verlaufen als geplant. Wir halten es aber mit Paul Theroux, weil wir in Auckland (Neuseeland) starten und die Reise auf Hawaii beenden wollen.

Though task to describe our planned route in advance. We are still arguing although we have been planning our trip for some months now… Anyway, we agree that we do not want to plan the details but keep freedom to change our itinerary. Our boundaries are that we stick with Paul Theroux starting our trip in Auckland (New Zealand) and ending our odyssey in Hawaii. Everything else in between can be followed on the blog.
