In May 2014 I joined a small group (16 passengers 2-3 crew) travelling overland from Istanbul to Singapore.
The trip would take us six months and we would travel by a customised truck from Istanbul to Calcutta. In South East Asia we would use a variety of transport as the truck wouldn’t be coming with us.
For reasons that I may or may not reveal in this blog, I missed* the first six weeks of the trip and joined the group in the extremely strange city of Ashgabat in Turkmenistan. Every day of this trip was amazing. I loved every minute of it and thoroughly recommend anyone (and I mean anyone) to go overlanding. It’s a fabulous way to travel and on this blog I will try my hardest to write about the many experiences I had.
I travelled with a UK based company, Odyssey Overland. I highly recommend them, go on….check ’em out!
