Just sitting in Singapore at the moment waiting for our bikes to arrive (via Qantas freight from Sydney).
Clarissa and I (Neil) are travelling RTW in the following fashion;
South east asia (May2012 - Dec2012) - Malaysia (3 months), Thailand, Laos, Cambodia loop then some more Thailand for meeting with Family and friends in December. Which we shall then either fly from Bangkok or ship from Cambodia to Japan (maybe South Korea then Japan?)
Japan (Jan2013-Mar2013) - exploring for just under three months before heading over to Vladivostok. Have to be in Vlad by mid April as Carnet will run out.
Russia/Mongolia/Kazakhstan (Apr2013-Oct2013) - Exploring over a number of months to soak this big part up.
Europe/Turkey/Europe/Egypt etc (Nov13-Aug14) - Wandering around the EU for a while with a pilgrimage for ANZAC day 2014 into Turkey. We've planned little past Russia at this point so exact places where going will be purely what catches our eye and front tire.
Canada/US/Alaska (Late 2014/2015) - As much as possible of these areas depending on the visas we can obtain.
South America - Will be our last area of interest, no Africa on this trip, or India/Pak/Iran (carnet/timing for SEA issues arose).
We are keeping a blog at whatwouldulike2do.blogspot.com.au with the spot tracker to be going as much as AAA battery possible. Always love meeting new people and sharing a
with anybody, biker or otherwise.
It will be hard missing us on the road with the big tanks and headlights but if you would enjoy having yarn or a carbonated beverage or two let us know and we will try our best to say G'day. This trip is certainly flexible so the above route and times will be very groovy to say the least. We shall go with the flow and see where our budget takes us! In saying that, we won't be camping throughout SEA but shall be from Japan onwards.
Take care and safe travels,
