I am currently planning a backpacking experience from England to Australia /New Zealand to be completed durning 2014. During the Asian leg I am looking to travel on either the Silk Road ( Istanbul to Beijing) or the Trans Mongolian ( Moscow to Beijing) routes. Ideally I want to complete this leg independent of travel companies to enable flexibility and to make the most of the experience without being restricted to particular times.

I would welcome contact by any other independent travellers who are interested in the same type of experience. I would also welcome any advise from individuals who have travelled these routes.

In Moscow to Beijing:
