Route Details for Each Year

Please note that this is just one of our many projected routes, twice around the world.  Yes, this is currently our favorite route, but changing politics, unpredictable weather, unforeseen repairs, health, or just because we change our minds, we might take a different route when the time comes.  Still, this is the route we plan to follow, at least, for the moment.
