The above photos only illustrate parts of the trip.  For more of the trip photos, have a look at my FaceBook photo album. The links in the text lead to Google Maps etc., and you may need to zoom in/out to get your bearings if you do not know the area.  Our routes had the odd extra miles and U-turns thrown in depending on who was leading and how slavishly they followed their GPS in preference to the direction signs... which are actually very good.
