Smile Uk To Oz In Small Van

Hi , i am teresa, from suffolk uk. im planning a trip in a small diesiel van. My aim is to get to south east asia, and hopefully to oz, or how ever far she takes me . hoping to leave late december early january.

All info you need on Carnets is on this site, just do a search search. Myanmar (Burma) is a no-no for vehicles so you'll need an alternative route. I guess you could ship from India to Malaysia (e.g. Port Klang) or if you've got £££s, you could try China. You could prob also ship from Pt Klang to Oz as I believe Singapore is a bit of a pain for vehicles.

SEEING WHAT TRIP INTAILS, HAVE GOT A LOT TO SORT OUT BEFORE I LEAVE,THIS TRIP IS BASED ON ME GETTING MY COMPENSATION SETTLEMENT, WHICH HOPEFULLY WILL BE CONCLUDED BEFORE XMAS. THIS HAS NOW BEEN GOING ON FOR 4 YEARS, SO AS SOON AS I RECICIEVE THE CONFIRMATION I CAN MAKE THE EXACT DATE FOR LEAVING. CANNOT WAIT TO GO , TRESS.
