Round-the-World Plan for 2002-2004
On 3rd October 2002 I left the UK for Australia. I travelled with a company called BUNAC, the same company that I traveled to the USA to work with in 1997 once I had finished University.

The options which I had to choose from for return flights are as below. I made the decision to travel via Bangkok on the way, and via Auckland, Honolulu and Los Angeles on the way home.

I travelled clockwise around Australia, including all the major cities, as well as Tasmania. The rough route was:
Sydney – Melbourne – Tasmania – Adelaide – Alice Springs – Uluru – Perth – Broome – Darwin – Cairns – Brisbane – Sydney (for onward flight)
I stayed in New Zealand for 4 months from September 2003 - January 2004. Travelling on I went to Hawaii for 3 weeks before heading over to Los Angeles.

I had a week in LA before joining a trip which lasted for 6 weeks and took me down into Mexico.

I flew back from Mexico City to LA and caught a connecting flight to the UK arriving home on 12th March 2004.
