Click here for a Google map of my route with some approximate dates in the notes attached to each location, or try pasting this link http://tinyurl.com/DescendingMap

In words:

  • London-Istanbul 8th – 12th November
  • Istanbul-Tehran 12th – 15th November
  • Tehran-Zahedan 15th – 21st November
  • Zahedan-Lahore 21st – 25th November
  • Delhi, Rishikesh, Dehadrun in India 25th November – 8th December
  • Agra, Varanasi, Sikkim, Kolkata in India 9th – 19th December *

* yes, I will  be flying Kolkata to Kunming. It is impossible to overland through Burma, and the alternative route through Kathmandu, Lhasa and Lanzhou (north/central China) is really a huge effort (esp. visas, freezing weather, likelihood of altitude sickness), expense, and several thousand kms to get back down to Kunming…

  • Kunming, Lijiang, Tiger Leaping Gorge 21st – 27th December
  • Jinchuan, Shaxi, Kunming, then down to Yuangyang 28th December – 3rd January
  • Yuangyang to Luang Prabang (Laos) 3rd January – 7th January
  • Luang Prabang to Vientiene (Laos), NongKhai (Thailand), then in Bangkok 7th-11th January
  • Bangkok to Singapore from 11th Jan to 13th January
  • Singapore to Denpasar (Bali) via Jakarta 14th-20th January
  • Bali 21st to 25th January
  • Bali to Darwin, arriving 26th January *

* the only way to get to Australia now is to fly.

  • Darwin to Sydney on train/bus (via Adelaide and Melbourne!) 28th Jan – 1st Feb
  • Sydney to Melbourne with Hallbarhet2009 3rd – 13th February
  • Melbourne 13th – 18th February
  • Melbourne to Perth 18th-21st February
  • HOME! for my brother’s engagement party…
