While the romance of a long-term non-stop round-the-world trip is intoxicating, the reality is that not many people can do it due to time/money/logistics. I am thankful that I can rely on modern air travel to whisk me back to family and work (and then back to my bike) so that I can do a trip in stages. It's not the way I originally envisioned my trip, but it allows me to do it now, rather than wait until "I have the time," which might never happen.
Keep having fun and stay flexible with your plans, and enjoy the fact that you can be as flexible as you want.

It allows for tghe possibility to get to India during there summer season.....
I had come to terms that this journey does not need to be continuous. Talked with another long term rider about this, and there are times on the road that you get tired out, and need to take time staying in one place or returning home to regroup before continuing. No rules in how to do this kind of long distance travel, I have found that I will need a break somewhere along the trip.
We will all see what happens!
