The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour

This trip was some 3 or 4 years in the planning and arranging phase.

It takes that long to work out where you really want to go and how you will make it all happen.

As it happens the trip coincides with several auspicious and fortuitous events,

  • 2013 is the year of my 40th birthday, so its a fitting brithday celebration
  • My brother, Lukasz,  decided to get married, which have forced us to re-jig the plans an little and extend the trip by an extra continent.
  • There is a travel photography course and guided tour being run in Istanbul (more about that below)
