OZ to UK, 2003

Would like to leave OZ for the UK around March/April. Haven't done any concrete planning yet, just dreaming and reading, but need to start. If anybody is planning on leaving Darwin for Asia around the same time let me know and maybe we can swap stories and provide encouragement.

Hiya!
Great stuff. Hope you get started really soon.
Im from Singapore and will be doing my trip from Singapore-Malaysia-Thailand-Myanmar(if possible)India-Pakistan-Iran-Turkey-Bulgaria-Yugo- all the way till Ireland. My departure date is sometime end Feb to March 2003. Im awaiting my carnet paperwork, and will be apllying visas for 5 countries that i need. Myanmar, India, Pakistan, Iran, Bulgaria. I suppose you'll need the same visas too.
My bike ('89 Dommie) is now being prepared, waiting for new gaskets before we sew her up, and then to make some racks & panniers and i will be ready. Lets keep in touch.

Cheers
Dalbir

Thanks for the replies. Dalbir, sounds like your well advanced with your planning. Pretty exciting time eh? Mark, have emailed you. Hi Carol. Having followed the HUBB postings for a while I think you win a prize for being most keen to do it all again. Will certainly contact you soon and greatly appreciate the offer. Also nice the offer to show me where to go. I usually just get told where to go!!!
Current plan is to leave Darwin for East Timor and Island Hop from there. Anybody know why this can't be done?

Regards

John
