Planning for extended travel around the world is pretty different from planning your standard American 10-day vacation. The most challenging part is deciding to take the plunge in the first place.

In our case, the game plan has changed several times, and we've learned that the most important tools in our arsenal are flexibility and patience!
The following sections have some further info on our plan of attack:
- Research - how to get started and stay inspired!
- Finances - oh yeah, we have to fund this trip somehow...
- Route - choosing our destinations
- Gear - what to bring, what to bring
