Books and Maps

December 7, 2012

Finding our way from England where The Turtle V will be shipped to and on through Germany, Switzerland and southwest to Lisbon, Portugal, and then east crossing 26 very different countries all the way to Beijing, China will be a daunting challenge. Thanks to Lonely Planet travel and guidebooks and our Garmin GPS, we at least have a chance of not been lost too many times. Of course, lost is a relevant term. I’ve been lost in a big hotel in Las Vegas. If we know we’re in Turkey, we’re not lost. Maybe temporarily disoriented, but not lost. We’re in Turkey, right?

Lonely Planet has a detailed guidebook for just about any country in the World.

Can you believe it? The microchip on my finger has all of Europe including Turkey, city-by-city and turn-by-turn.

As we travel through 26 countries following the Silk Road, Monika will have her hands full as Chief Navigator. My question: “Are we there yet?”
