We're not alone !

When planning a trip it is useful to get as much information about where you are going as possible. As well as the usual books and magazines we found other peoples websites to be a valuable information source. We were a few months behind Viking and Chief and made the most of some of their recommendations.

We have met a variety of other people during our travels. Some were on short trips, others were on lengthy expeditions and were writing of their adventures.

The following lists the websites of some people we met and others that we have heard of.
