Sailing journeys around the world is carried out by many boats every year. Which route they follow varies, but one factor is the same, the route is laid according to the wind seasons. Since 2/3 of the worlds surface is water there is unlimited of places to travel, so the task of picking out which places to go is tough. The important thing for me was to have enough time; I do not want to hurry to get to see most countries in the least amount of time. I see no point in rushing through paradise. I rather spend more time at fewer places.
My original plan was to do an circumnavigation around the world via South Africa in 40 months, but after sailing for a while I realized that this would be too much ocean and too little experiences ashore. If I have enough moeny, I will be sailing for 52 months and have therefore decided to sail to India, up the Red Sea and through the Suez Canal. Then go to the Black Sea and through the canal system to the Baltic Sea. There are many different canals to choose from, and I have not decided which it will be yet. From the Baltic Sea I will take the Göta Canal from Stockholm to Göteborg and follow the Norwegian coast back to Karmřy. Plans are made with the purpose of being changed, and it is good to have this freedom. So the final route is not final until I am back in Norway.
The green line on the first map below marks the distance sailed so far, and the red line shows where I plan to go. Below this is a more detailed map of the region where I am in now.
