Planning a multi-month road trip doesn’t happen over night (specifically, if you are on a budget). Make sure to start the process early to provide you with sufficient time for research, discussion and revision.
STEP 1: Decide on what country / countries you want to travel.

- Healthcare: Given the length of our trip it was important to us to avoid any countries with chronic diseases (e.g Malaria) to minimize the risk of exposing our sons to something that they could struggle with for the rest of our their lives.
