Yes, so I have this reasonably big plan of making it to Tibet without a plane. I would like to start off in Berlin, then make it through Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia to China and then to Tibet.
This is the trip, roughly:
Alright, so please, if you're just going to say something along the lines of 'idiot', 'not possible', 'insane', then please spare it.
I do not know a lot about geography, I don't even know if the tour on the map is crossing any mountains that you can't really pass or any other stuff one might be expected to know when he or she has planned such a huge trip. If anyone of you has info on crossing some of those countries I'd be glad to find out more about that. Even if it's only say.. Poland->Lithuania or Russia->China.
The choice of countries was due to me being a European citizen, I therefore won't have trouble travelling up to Latvia, as it's part of the EU. I would then need only a VISA for China, Russia and Tibet. I don't even know if you need a VISA if I just want to pass through Russia, then again, with tramping it will probably take a very long time and therefore I'll prolly need a VISA.
I'm aware I'm not very well informed, that is why I'm coming here. If you have advise, tips, anything, I'd be glad to hear it. I will obviously gather more information before starting the trip, but maybe some of you have already gathered some information that I need and could spare me work.
All the best to all you travellers,
Ps.: I wasn't sure where to put this, as it is Europe and Asia, but also not a world trip.
Ps.: I am in the process of informing, hence it is no wonder I do not know a lot, I just wanted to stress that once more. I just checked and it doesn't seem like it would work out very well to cross the Russian border to Chian via the small gap between Kazahkstan and Mongolia.... but I'm not sure yet.
