Every time I do one of these maps, they're travelling west - exactly the wrong way for the natural left to right scanning of the eye as you read...

Next time I'll have to make sure they're going to New Zealand.

And a sharp-eyed reader has pointed out that in the last map, #254, they were actually travelling east. Actually going through all the strips and checking continuity is too much work for me... especially since I know a reader will find out the truth. :-)
2013-01-28 Rerun commentary: The route is: Flying in those days must have been a real adventure in itself.

Notice the guy in the turban on the plane - since they're leaving India. (Sitting next to Ron Weasley, for some reason...)
