Welcome to our blog site, This site belongs to us, Dan McDonald and Yumiko Eshima, and is therefore  unsurprisingly about us. For those unfamiliar with the Japanese language, the “sekai” of our domain name is simply the Japanese word for “world”. The characters or Kanji for “sekai” are 世界, which appear in the title.

The purpose of this site is to document our trip around the world by surface; that is, by land and sea only–no airplanes. The trip began on 14 January 2008 from Naha, Japan, and on 5 August 2009 we reached Tokyo, our final destination, and so completed our trip, but you may find further details of our trip in the “Information” section, where you can also follow the course of our trip.
