Hi Guys,

I am going from Europe (Spain) to India, Thailand and China by road (car, bus, train, bike, boat, hitch hike...anything but a plane!) - once there I will be staying for an indefinite amount of time in all three countries to study various massage techniques.

I wanted to get any kind of advice from anyone who has done a similar trip, passing through the Middle East.
I am going to start to learn Arabic as being a solo female traveller, I'd rather like to be able to speak the language!

What I'd like pointers on would be:

  • Political restrictions crossing borders (eg: borders that are permanently impossible to cross) or local politcal issues...
  • Languages spoken across from Turkey to India (which Arabic would be most useful or other language that I could get by with)
  • Visa issues for British passport holders (this is not so important, I will look into that later)
  • Recommendations of countries/places not to miss (I'm a nature freak! :) or any crazy ideas welcome!

I'm starting to think about biking my way there and fundraising. WOOFing is also an option.

Anyhows, thanks for any replies!

Bless

Shazer
