Damian rec­om­mends con­sid­er­ing the prox­im­ity of your lodg­ings to each des­ti­na­tion on your itin­er­ary, as you’ll have to fac­tor in travel times and make sure you un­der­stand your route, “as in­vari­ably walks/drives in and out will take place in dark­ness.” In the run-up to the Af­fric trip, he printed off OS maps (from Bing Maps) for each area he was in­ter­ested in and marked the di­rec­tion of sun­rise and sunset with di­ag­o­nal lines. “I also pen­cilled in the spe­cific van­tage points I wanted to get to and cal­cu­lated how many of these spots I could fea­si­bly get around in a short win­ter day.”
