My tour

I've been on a world tour. I left on the 13th of April 2001, and returned on the 16th of June 2001, and in that time I visited Germany, Switzerland, France, Canada, the USA and the UK.

I flew 41 300 km. I travelled by motor-car, train, tram, bus, bicycle (tandem and ordinary), taxi, ferry and funicular. I experienced snow and brutal heat and humidity. I survived two general elections.

I kept an on-line journal.

I've compiled a list of travel tips.
