We made it!!
After four and a half years on the road we did it! We reached ‘home’ again, right back where we started, where we hugged our families and waved goodbye as we set off on an adventure of a lifetime. We had lots of dreams and lots of goals but one goal would only be complete if we got back to where we started:
We’ve crossed every line of longitude
We’ve crossed the equator twice – once in each direction
We’ve covered enough miles to drive the grand circle (distance round the earth)
We’ve arrived back where we started
And we’ve visited two points on the planet, on land, exactly opposite each other – the antipodal points. The first in Mongolia just outside Ulaanbaator, the second in southern Chile.
We’ve discovered new favourite places, new favourite wildlife, and made lots of new friends.
It’s not always been easy. The finances have taken a battering and our poor old Landy needs some powerful TLC. Would we do it again? You bet.
