We are making our dream happening setting off for 10 months, travelling around the world. Starting from France in August 2018, will go in an easterly direction via Central Asia ending our journey in Africa. We have over 20 countries on our bucket list and many stopovers planned. Because we are travelling on a budget, we will be looking at going to places off the tourist trail and to remote places in the world not yet widely explored. Here is our journey.
AUGUST 2018 : CAUCASIA
