In 1989, when I obtained my pilot's licence, I said I was going to fly round the world. Since 2018 I have been planning my round the world adventure. originally with a departure date of May 2020. The pandemic stopped everything in 2020, so I delayed my departure for 12 months, not believing it wouldn't be all over. Last year I also postponed my trip for the pandemic. This year I was ready to go when Putin invaded the Ukraine. As I have to fly in Russia to complete the trip, I was faced wit h the choice of delaying the trip again or cancelling it entirely. Not wishing to do either, I have now planned an alternative - 10,000 miles around Europe. Pretty much from as far North as I can get in Europe, to as far South as I can go and perhaps just into Africa with a visit to Morocco. I will also go as far East as Romania. It no longer counts as a round the world flight but it is equally as adventurous.
