200 Days of Travelling


Posted on May 19, 2014

Today was our 200th day on the road! We arrived in Lhasa, Tibet around 6pm after spending all day on a bus driving from Gyantse through the most amazing scenery. We crossed a pass which was 5,000m above sea level and climbed the hill next to the road to get incredible views of the lake in the valley. In the next valley we drove alongside the Yarlung Tsangpo River, which is called the Brahmaputra River further downstream. This is one of the major rivers of Asia! Overall we had a great day, lots of driving but amazing scenery, interesting things to see and do and visiting some famous places. Today roughly sums up the trip as a whole. This is probably the midpoint of the trip. When we left home back on November last year our estimate was 400 days of travelling. So in the first half of the trip we’ve seen Moscow, some of China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Philippines, Nepal, Tibet. The second half will hopefully be more of China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. We’ve covered 18,000 miles so far and only flown to and from the Philippines and once in Vietnam to save time. Hopefully we can keep the flying to a minimum in the future too. I hope you all enjoy reading about this trip and will continue following us for the next 200 days. We’ll try to keep the content interesting and informative (which the odd post or two hasn’t been) and will aim to get great photos of the places we visit. Enjoy!
