The Adventurists refer to an ‘un-route’ , which we think is a very apt description since we really have no route plan. But we will have one at some point before New Year’s Day and we’ll keep you posted right here.
Suffice to say, the journey is completely independent and unsupported, so you can go any way you please. We start in Jaisalmer in the desert state of Rajasthan and finish two weeks later in Cochin in lush, green Kerala in the south. In between lie the states of Gujurat, Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka (the most direct route as the crow flies). For those who are unfamiliar with the geography of India (Claire and Erica take note!), see the map above. We’re planning on buying a slightly more detailed one for route planning.
It’s a very long way indeed. Mon Dieu.
