The tour

Our plan is to travel for 10 months from March 2024 until January 2025. During that time, we'll be taking in parts of Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa and finally to Australia, back home after more than ten years living in Hong Kong.

The difficulty in planning a trip like this is not just where to go, it's how long to spend in each location. We know where we want to start, India and we know where we'll be ending; Sydney, January 2025.

Since we started planning, the itinerary has changed and will no doubt, keep changing; if there's one lesson everyone must learn on a travel adventure, it's to be flexible.

You haven't really visited Barcelona unless you've paid a visit to Gaudi's magnificent but unfinished, La Sagrada Familia. Nearly a century after Gaudi's sudden death, this magnificent cathedral is still under construction but is said to be completed in 2026. Also on the agenda, a stroll down Las Ramblas and a visit to the Boqueria Market to sample some authentic Catalan flavours. There's a food tour planned as well as a paella workshop. We might even squeeze in a flamenco lesson to work off all that patatas and churros.


They say the best way to experience Madrid is to bounce between the traditional and the alternative, so you can appreciate the city’s historic legacy alongside its contemporary creativity. First stop will be a visit to the Prado Museum, also known as Spain's treasure chest. A stadium tour at the home of Real Madrid is also on the cards. Plus, wandering the streets like a true ‘madrileño’ sampling tapas from from tucked away wine bars that litter this magnificent city.

O Cebreiro

This ancient Spanish village in north west Galicia marks the start of our Pilgrimage along the famous, Camino de Santiago or Way of St James. We won't have long here, just a day to take in the cobbled streets and traditional pallozas before heading off on our journey, a 150 kilometre walk over ten days and finishing at the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.

Santiago de Compostela

There are many different starting points for the Camino stretching across Europe but we're taking the Camino Francés. As other pilgrims have pointed out, the "way" itself isn't particularly difficult but walking every day for 1o, 20 or 30 days to complete the 780km journey is physically challenging. But that's the point, we want to push our bodies while at the same time learning how to just "be" with ourselves, with nature and with the One who guides us.

Bilbao and San Sebastian

After 10 days or so of trekking, it'll be lovely to relax and recover in the coastal surrounds of San Sebastian followed by a few days in contemporary Bilbao. The Guggenheim has long been on our list of museums to visit but we're also excited to immerse ourselves in the architectural splendours of the old quarters as well as indulge in delicious Basque cuisine.


Yes, we will be there during the San Fermin Festival but no, we won't be running with the bulls. There are plenty of other delights to explore in this 3000 year old city. The Casco Viejo or Old City of Pamplona is said to be charming and of course, historic. Then there's the many Pixtos bars to sample some delicious bites.
