Name: Kathy and Sharon round the world

From: United Kingdom

About Me: We quit our jobs in July 2005 and then took 14 months to travel the world and see & experience what we could. Our plan was to try and fly as few times as possible and we promised to upload many photos and diary entries!

Hope you can enjoy travelling with us via the virtual world. For a detailed route map go to

We really look forward to your messages so do keep them coming! Glad you love the website - we are still amazed by the number of hits we get!

Since our big world adventure we have travelled some more. Globenotes seems the best place to record those adventures.We hope you can continue to sit back and enjoy the ride!

Iceland was always meant to be on our round the world tour. But with its geography and soaring costs, it soon became clear that it wasn't going to happen on the original RTW route. However, we have managed to save some pennies and finally get here.
