    Great photos. Makes me ready to do some traveling!

    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

    I am assuming your Honda did good. Pretty impressive considering the roads. You should send a write-up (miles, mpg, oil changes, etc.---just like here) and those pics to Honda press/PR/etc. dept here in the US. I am sure they would love to see their vehicle taking on this adventure with you. It's good PR for them. Who knows...you might get some Honda swag from them.
