Hi there,

I say just go do it, don't worry about the planning too much, or money...screw it, figure out the basics and take off!! I'm in the middle of kinda planning the same trip, eastern europe over to russia to mongolia to china. I'm in Switzerland now having been through russia and half of eastern europe so far. I was only planning on being gone for a few weeks and here I am a few months later looking at a few more!

Money-wise I think I have a bit less than you and I am hoping that will get me through to china from here! Who knows, all I can say is your most careful plans go out the window after the plane takes off!

Best wishes,

We have one thing in common: I love to read travel blogs.


Posted by: myworldtotravel on March 16, 2005 12:41 PM

Tristan: I am so tempted to just go now. I am extremely impatient.. but then I think about the amount of time I'll be able to spend on the road with the money I have and I decide to wait. I'm gonna earn some more...but if I fall into some extra cash...IM OUTTA HERE BABY! haha
:) I've been cutting out quite a few western european countries cause they are expensive, this will allow me to leave with less money..therefore leave sooner! I believe the bulk of my trip will be spent in China and SE Asia, mostly Kuching Malaysia...because I lived there for 4 years and I still have a few friends there. I had a dream about the place last night!
Thanks for checking out my blog!!!

MyWorldToTravel: Oh yeah! I can't stay away from the damn things, like The Global Trip blog, that one is very addictive! I guess I'm just living through other peoples travels until I can get out on my own!

Posted by: Kailani on March 16, 2005 03:47 PM

Cutting out Western Europe is definitely the way to go. One week in Paris would be like a month in EE! And Asia, not counting Japan, will be even better!! I will probably be taking the trans-siberian to Mongolia around May or so, at least that is the plan so far.......who knows

Posted by: Tristan on March 16, 2005 06:08 PM

Tristan: Same here, I'm doing the Trans-Siberian through Mongolia as well, actually I am going to do point to point tickets so I can stop and spend some time in Irkutsk and Ulaan Baatar, I'd like to see Lake Baikal as well as spend a little time in the Mongolia outdoors. I'll probably be travelling that leg of the trip in Novemberish- early December.

139 Obscure facts about yourself takes quite a lot of introspection! I find a lot of these rather interesting.
11: I'm of the opinion that its more then just George W alone. It is probably most of his Staff and many leaders of other countries as well. Don't forget about American society either. I think our society is just as much at fault for letting things like Bush happen while Clinton was almost impeached for an affair.
20:I'm just the opposite, I like some rap lyrics(like Eminem), but not really any of the music.
21:LOL! thats absoluetly hilarious.
25: I do this often. Uasally when I think of something that could have happened that would have been funny.
49,50,51: Ahh the percs of being a smart kid. I got a 28 on my ACT and i smoked a lot that morning. And it wasnt tobacco....
53: iPods rock. I call mine Westinghouse.
55: I like diesel exhaust.
63: I play a lot of RPG's, and I dont think I could watch someone play. Especially the menu-driven ones. Although maybe FFVII....
65: I play Halo2, a bit different game, but still FPS.
91: My friend and I (back when I had a job), used to go on what we called drives. We'd get in my car, put on the iPod, and drive for hours in one direction, trying to get to stars(this close to Chicago, you can hardly see the north star sometimes).
