My friend and I (2 women) are planning a backpackers trip from Cyprus to India overland, next summer 2008. Any ideas how to achieve this please?

First build a bridgje between Cyprus and Turkey.

Ok, seriously.
First go to Turkey and travel by train/bus to Tabriz in Iran and overland through Iran, Pakistan to India.
Then only trickey part will be the Iran/Pakistan border (baluchistan), the rest is safe.
I guess this is the only possible route, because other routes more south means you will have to pass Iraq, Saudi Arabia or Sudan in some way.
Although a nice detour could be to go to the caucasus countries, take a ferry from Baku to Turkmenbashi and travel to Central Asia, China and down south to Pakistan or Tibet and then on to India. But you need more time, more visas etc. etc.

Have fun!
