Product description

Product Description

Flying to Australia is boring, especially if you think of all the fascinating countries you are bypassing - that are out of sight below the clouds. Like millions of others I’ve flown to Australia, and been bored stiff, but this time I’m going overland by train.

I was able to connect up with a whole series of trains, which took me virtually all the way from London to Sydney. It’s not an artificial TV adventure trip with a dozen hidden fixers, nor am I doing mad antics, dangerous pastimes or piggy backing on some fund raising scam. This is an everyman story that anyone could do and is the most brilliant way to travel. I could potentially have done it in 3 weeks but I spent 3 months stopping off wherever I felt like it.

Starting from London my route crossed Europe into Russia, east across Siberia, south through Mongolia and into China. From Beijing I trained it to Hanoi and then took the Reunification Express to Saigon, with a few stops on the way. I followed the Mekong north through Cambodia, onwards to Bangkok in Thailand and down the Malay Peninsula to Singapore. My only flight was from Singapore to Darwin and then it was trains all the way to Sydney and Perth.
