The first part of this journey is around New Zealand, Fiji and Australia. The map below shows the basic outline of the entire trip which run for ~16 weeks across the 3 nations. Now I may or may not complete everything, but from my planning, it seems possible to cover the distance within the time frame.
The biggest worry I have is getting bored, so I try to mix various activities along the way to spice things up a bit. There’s less emphasize on food hunting this time, but if you do have recommendation on places worth trying, hit me.
I am hoping to learn more about photography during this trip and will start shooting manual mode and in RAW format. Combination of long-exposure, landscape, underwater and astrophotography would be interesting.
I’ve planned daily driving on google maps, which is will be primary navigation system. Data access should not be difficult nor expensive so google maps should work perfectly. A garmin will be the back up in case there’s no cellular coverage, happened before!
Stay tuned for regular updates!
PS. I spent hours researching how to put all the places under 1 map and route in google maps, something like this http://rhiever.github.io/optimal-roadtrip-usa/europe-trip.html (this trip is a serious contender for 2016) but couldn’t figure it out. Wouldn’t mind some tutorial!
