One month and counting

It is exactly one month until Elizabeth and I fly the London nest and start our journey east along the Silk Road.

We are madly trying to wrap our lives up here in London and also starting to plan our return to Sydney. Elizabeth has an enormous spread sheet with actions to do and we are slowly ticking them off.

There are so many more things we will miss and likewise some things we won’t, but I will save that post to closer to our departure.

For now I want to share our itinerary as it currently stands (excuse spelling mistakes and it is far from final yet). Any advice people have on the itinerary or suggestions for other places to visit would be really appreciated.
