I now have a good selection of maps with which to begin fine-tuning our route for the expedition. We already have a general country-to-country route roughed out but that has been primarily achieved by looking at an atlas. Now that I have the maps, we can begin to develop a more detailed route that includes cities and places of interest as well as the border crossings and the possible roads we’ll take.
I bought maps of Russia, the Baltic States, the ‘Stans’, Mongolia and Europe that cover the vast majority of the areas we’ll be visiting. All of the maps were purchased online from Great Journeys.
