I was able to connect up with a whole series of trains, which took me virtually all the way from London to Sydney and beyong. It wasn't a made up TV adventure trip with a dozen hidden fixers, nor was it a series of mad antics, dangerous pastimes, and it did'nt piggy backing on any fund raising scams.
It was an everyman story that anyone could do and was the best way I know of travelling. If I had rushed I could have made the trip in 3 weeks but that would have made a nonsense of why I wanted to do it overland, so I spent 3 months and stopped off whenever I felt like it.
Starting from London my route crossed Europe into Russia, east across Siberia, south through Mongolia and into China. From Beijing I trained it to Hanoi and then took the Reunification Express to Saigon, with a few stops on the way. I followed the Mekong north through Cambodia, onwards to Bangkok in Thailand and down the Malay Peninsula to Singapore. My only flight was from Singapore to Darwin and then it was trains all the way to Sydney and Perth.
