Round the world

We left France, on 30th September 2012 for a one year trip in Asia and South America.
We started with Sri LankaMyanmar (Burma) , Thailand , Laos , Cambodia , Vietnam and the Philippines .

After a short stopover in France to rest (oh yes we needed that), we flew to South America. In the program, Argentina (especially Patagonia), Chile , Bolivia , Peru and Colombia .

The map below shows our itinerary. You can click on one of the destinations to view the post.

—- January 2012 update———
We decided to spend a week in India (rather than to go through Sri Lanka again) before returning to France in March.

—- June 2013 update ———
Well… we extended  le Big Trip by 1½ months. It’s not everyday that we do a round the world trip and have no obligation in regards to the return date. We decided:
– to spend a few days in Ecuador,
– go to the United States to visit some national parks (Bryce, Zion, Yosemite, the Grand Cayon … ) and a few cities (Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York)
– and visit Montreal! To finish with a good poutine with friends we haven’t seen in ages, before returning to France.
