What do I mean by overland? Actually, what I mean for this trip is travelling by means of Train or Ferry/boat, as much as that’s possible. There’s a couple of places where neither will be possible – but it’s only going to the actual non-existence of these means of transport or safety considerations of a pretty extreme kind (or something that is truly out of the budget or untenable) that will incite a deviation from this plan!

Okay, so first thing’s first -It’s a really long way! Have you ever looked at it on a map?

It’s roughly 16974 kilometres or 10551 miles from point A to point B. Usually I fly, and the map looks something like this:

Tamworth to London

There are lots of different paths to take. And some decisions need to be made. This is the rough itinerary that I have at the moment. The Preparation page will give more details of my plan and maps of each stage.

I’m trying to keep a record of some of the more interesting numbers on the trip.
