My first overland travel map was as rough as you see it now to the right. It was a long time ago and I was inspired by the idea of going overland in a near straight line from West to East. The idea was as simple as that. A beginning.
My actual overland travel map ended up not so different in terms of direction - My huge overland travel map.
A beginning and an end. This is at least a start. We'll work on the practicalities later. For me it would involve starting in Sintra, and heading across Europe, into Russia via the trans-Siberian and over to the far east of Russia (Magadan).
The trip was fine, the problem was the end destination. East Russia, to get to the furthest east one would need to have a fixer and / or speak great Russian. Not to mention own a 4x4 for the terror roads, or lack of them. There was also that little thing called life that got in the way... It wasn't the best route to find a home, but it was a start.
For me I would change this route with a different overland plan. More on how to plan an overland travel journey
