Places and plans

I started my 6 month adventure on 16 April 2018, after many months of planning and years and years of dreaming. I’ve left my job, friends and family, and for the next three months I’ll be travelling overland between Croatia and China, taking buses and trains to go from city to city.

My current itinerary is below. Any recommendations for nice veggie places to eat, cute but cheap cafes and coffee shops, quirky places to visit and awesome museums would be much appreciated!
