As for the trip itself, there's only so much planning that can be done. Following to the letter all the advice about not trying to cram too much in, we are looking at about 12 months of trip into an 8 month timeframe. Something has got to give! Unfortunately, we are heading the same way with the packing and will probably be forced to 'uncram' soon.
The plan (v.21) is as follows. I'm sure it will change again (and some dates are very much approximate)but it gives you an idea of the timings (especially useful for those of you we expect to meet / stay with).
