I know that some people like to know how many, how far, how much, etc. And as a mother of a PhD graduate of mathematics, it really is my duty to publish such information, so here goes.
We left home on 31 August 2014 and flew to Hong Kong. From there our real journey started. Using a combination of road, rail, sea and air we travelled 22,623km to Istanbul in 95 days, of which 49% was by road – sitting in the back seats of cars on often bumpy, dusty roads.
But we didn’t stop in Istanbul. We continued to Barcelona, then on to London via Paris, popped across to Iceland for Christmas and back to London. By the end of 2014 we added 9,500km to our travels in just 18 days. Road travel dropped to 37% but air travel increased to 60%. We love train travel and stayed close at 24%.
In that time I added 15,828 photos to my album, of which 10,376 were on my now struggling Sony HX-300. Evan provided the most astonishing statistic, raking up 2261 of the 4486 photos the family group took in Iceland. But then again, I don’t have a count on Bruce’s photos, as yet.
Here are a couple of table to support the numbers.
