Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, Australia

Number of Flights: 38
We flew with 15 different airlines over the year for our 38 flights, and spent nearly 7 days in the air flying (not including time spent in airports… I don’t think we don’t want to know how much time was spent in airports…).
Total kilometres flown: 116,204 km (72,205 miles)
That’s roughly three times around the Earth, or a third of the way to the moon.
Number of Night Buses: 12
Number of Night Trains: 5
Malaysia to Singapore, and Tangier to Marrakech in Morocco. They were rather comfortable and a much nicer way to travel than the night bus (you get a bit more sleep, and it’s a lot more comfortable).
Number of times Takeshi was asked if he wanted illegal drugs in Morocco: 10
This was actually rather amusing – we’re not exactly sure why he was such a popular target to ask though. Portugal was definitely the hot spot in terms of total number of times; however, honourable mentions also go to Portugal (9) and Nepal.

I’ll admit, I had a bit of a problem with taking photos. I thought I’d slow down more after a while, and yes that did happen a bit, but I still took a lot more photos than I anticipated. Would have been better if I had kept up to date with sorting and editing photos while we were on the road a bit better too…
