Mr Palin himself would be proud...the deserts of Western China

The Plan Actuality

Not too different from the original plan, but had to ditch Middle East & Vietnam due to time constraints. 4 months is not long for a global jaunt. Neither is 6 if you're doing some kook-eyed 6 countries in 2 months gig...

A Michael Palin-style jaunt through places of variety, departing in summer & returning in winter.I hit the road in early June 1999, stomaching 6 weeks in Indianapolis, finally heading back to Blighty for a wedding in mid-July before going on a jolly in San Diego. Technically, the circumnavigation commenced in August with Denver as a springboard.


Start/End in Denver, travelling West->East.
