Land's End to John O'Groats (the long way round)

so this is as far as the plans have got using the time honoured tradition of a map and pins on the wall...

it's not so much an itinerary at this stage as an intention and without even a working engine, let alone a leave date fixed, much could change en route....

12 months (or so), 28 countries (although some of them are very very small!), an estimate of 15,000 miles (or that's what we've told the insurance company...), the current plan is to come home when we get bored, run out of money or hate each other - whichever happens first!

We plan to have enough of a plan from time to time to enable those that can and want to, to find a cheap flight and come visit us (with a bit of notice) and all welcome!

If anyone has been to any of these countries and can tell us their "must see's" we are definitely up for any and all suggestions either now or nearer the time - always remembering my father's sage advice...

"cheap is good and free is as good as cheap gets..."

As and when we have internet access, you will find us here or at

Looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. but your route misses out the vital first step from Cambridge to land's end... looks like you will spend your year of early retirement stuck on the drive in Balsham.
