Beijing to Istanbul overland, then India and Nepal

Beijing to Istanbul overland, then India and Nepal

Will update when I can, but there will probably be quite a lack of computers for the middle section of the trip.
Some posts will be skeleton entries as I need pics to remind me what was going on.
I won’t sent each entry as an email so you’re better off using an RSS reader and subscribing using the link on the left.
15/8 – still having trouble getting pics on the site, but at least I know the little hard drive is working, so can have about 22,000 pics in all.
29/8 – ooh photos, but they take ages to upload
As much as I love TravelPod, it was an awful lot easier to upload photos to Picasa: http://picasaweb.google.com/swhale

(His Kyrgyzstan album is: http://picasaweb.google.com/swhale/03Kyrgyzstan#)

Kyrgyzstan entries include:

Getting out of Kazakhstan and into Kyrgyzstan through the border at Kegan was even easier than getting into Mongolia, we are starting to enjoy this. In total it took 15 minutes for both borders, unheard of in this part of the world. Maybe because it was a Sunday?

Along with one of my best mates – Londoner Indie Shah – I plan to travel from London to Beijing and back, via Saigon and Moscow. We’ll be experiencing several countries, including China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Russia.
