I am currently starting to plan a year long trip for June 2011, starting around Europe, heading on to Australia and New Zealand, and then finishing off in the US. I am hoping to spend 4 months on each continent, which should allow me enough time to get to all the places I want to go to, I have a lot of miles to cover lol!
I would like ideally to fly from Australia and land in California, and to drive from San Francisco up to Vancouver [the ferry terminal], is this do-able? If it isn't, then how would I be able to do this leg of the trip without a car? Can I even rent a car on a British Drivers License?? I want to do this route because there are a few places along the way that I want to see, Fortuna being one of them, as I heard it is the place to go to see the Giant Redwoods! The round the world ticket only allows so many stops, and I have to be careful how I use them to get from one corner of the earth to the next.
Please offer mee advise if you have the time! It would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
