Hi Idan, I'm heading to Oz in May (from Scotland) but won't arrive in Australia until Dec 08/jan 09. Belgium/Germany/Czech Rep/Austria/Poland/Ukraine/Russia/Kazakhstan/China/Vietnam/Cambodia/Thailand/Malaysia/Indonesia - Australia.

Get back to me and see what you think, if we are heading the same direction?

I will be doing a lap of Oz starting around beginning of July. This is the ideal time to travel the northern part of the continent as it is a lot cooler.

I have no specific time of leaving at this time, but am heading North from rockhampton, this is on the Tropic of Capricorn on the east coast.

I will be travelling through Kazahkstan, China, Loas and all the way to Oz as well, be in Kazahkstan around May I would think, when do you think you will be there. So far for China I am going to try just giving it a go and see what happens, are you going to get a guide or the approriate stuff needed?? Think I will be going to Mongolia at this stage as well

No Go!

Hi Idan,

I don't want to dampen your plans mate but being Israeli you won't be able to travel in some Asian countries. Namely Malaysia and Indonesia. You can ship from Thailand though which will probably be better for you.
