The Continents





Introduction to the Continents

There are only a limited number of continents and a lot is known about some and less about others.

I don't intend to write an extensive introduction about continents here as there are much better sites for that.

Suffice to say that I would like to eventually visit all of them including Antarctica.

Accordingly, I have set the basic structure up to allow for this ambition, even if I have nothing significant to say about them at the moment.

Whilst the structure of this travelogue will be a combination of Continents and Oceans, and this is the Continents segment, there are exceptions. For instance Great Britain has it's own sections for holidays, or short breaks. After all, it is my home country. Another exception is The Grand Tour, but this is just an alternative route in the menus to the same trips within the respective continents.
