When we set off in October 2011 we had a vague plan. It was to head south to the Algarve region of Portugal for the winter, then head east to Italy and Greece and then back to the UK. We thought our savings would keep us on the road for about a year, but little did we know just how many free places there are to park overnight in Europe, or how cheap wine is in Portugal!
We’ve just set off for our second year on the road. Our plan is, as usual, flexible. We aim to travel south through Italy and Sicily into Tunisia, then back into Italy to Greece, and finally north through the Balkans. If time and budget allows, we’d like to visit Norway en route back to the UK.
The map below shows our latest adventure starting in September 2012 along with the locations we have stopped at. If you click on any of the locations (either in the list or on the map) it will take you to our first post from when we were there – you can then click through to get to later posts which may have more info after we’ve had time to explore a little. The posts will give more exact details on the location we stayed in – there’s a link in the first sentence of each post (we started adding GPS details from Cudillero, Northern Spain – Nov 2011).
