Hi, it is currently one year out from my departure for my world tour! The saving is coming along great ($50k AU saves thus far) and I have begun to roughly map out the course I want to take. This map isnt by any means bible but more a rough track on the directions I want to go through the countrys.
If you have visited ANY of these countrys and can advise me on the best travel types or ways to go the please do, I am going to need all the help I can get!
heres the map and outline - http://www.travellerspoint.com/member_map.cfm?itinid=174999&tripid=174999
thanks in advance!
Well, shitfire...I never even knew this option was available.....I like this site more and more all the time. Let me examine and see what I can give ya. Looks like a fun trip.
$50k is a lot of money - you'd probably spend half of this or less, unless you need to hire some sort of entourage to get through Afghanistan and Pakistan :P
I'll assume you know of the risks in these countries, especially Afghanistan. It may also be hard to travel here without some sort of guide/security or something - the borders are probably secured to the teeth. 2010 is also a while away, and considering the political fragility and the fact that the number of military troops in Afghanistan will increase in future, I'm not sure how pretty Kabul will be. But since you've taken an interest in going here you're either very naive or know more about it than me
Another option might be to go from India to Nepal, Tibet, and through China to Kyrgystan or Tajikstan (if all this is possible). I think it'd be almost criminal to see all these places but not the Himilayas!
