My partner Jools and I are about to embark on a trip to Uzbekistan, Greece, Spain and north-west USA.  In due course I will post for each part of the journey under the maps below.  I may produce some temporary posts as I go but only if I have sufficient time.  Final posts will appear later (and I still have to finish final posts for Cuba and the Caribbean).

Links for summary posts and then final posts will appear under the maps in due course.

      Well, I spent probably about three months preparing for this one. And the finances are getting somewhat more strained so I may have to slow down.

      Prague should have been pretty amazing though. So’s northern Scotland for that matter.
