Elly will travel down through the islands that now make up England, her first stop being Stonehenge before seeing the shockingly little that is left of London. She will then travel to France to visit the Eiffel Tower, 1/3rd of which is under water. Then she’ll cross Europe to Greece, see the Parthenon then travel to Italy for a boat tour of Rome before heading to Tunisia and along what’s left of the Barbary coast towards Morocco.
She will travel down through West Africa to South Africa and visit Table Mountain, now an island. After seeking out the last remnants of Africa’s famed wildlife she will brave the journey up the east coast to Egypt.
She’ll visit the pyramids (the little one is visible at low tide), then continue to Jordan for Petra, through the Arabian desert to Muscat, from where Elly will take a ferry to Gandhinagar in India, a port that just 30 years earlier was hundreds of miles inland.
India is now home to over half a billion climate refugees from Bangladesh and West Bengal. Elly will do her best to visit the Taj Majal before crossing the Himalayas — Nepal to Tibet — and down to where the Great Wall of China disappears into the sea.
After making her way down through China, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia, she’ll pass the submerged skyscrapers of Singapore as she makes the journey by ship to Australia to visit Uluru… if that’s even possible in a world in which the temperature of the Red Centre routinely tops 55°C.
She’ll then head east to the new New South Wales coast, and will take a sail boat across the Pacific to South America, hitting New Zealand and some remaining Polynesian islands along the way.
She will land in Chile and forge a path northwards to Peru, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, long abandoned and overgrown. Elly will then travel up to Iquitos to see for herself the vast desert that once was the Amazon Rainforest.
Returning to the long spine of Andes, she’ll travel up through Central America, visiting the great pyramid of Chichén Itzá en route to New York to see what’s left of Manhattan, now submerged beneath 65 metres of relentless waves.
