Welcome to Polly and David Bean's Round the World blog

We are doing our best to post items here as we arrive in new places and also to give quick access to any trip highlights. Hover over any photos in the blog posting to get more info about them.
 
We are also taking photos as usual and uploading them to the main part of the site, as we get them processed (our success at any kind of posting and uploading depends on the quality of our internet access from place to place). You'll find the photos under the Photos menu at "2014 Round the World". We'll also announce them in the blog.
 
Please join us on our journey!
