Kristina's 1 Year to See the Mainland -Bangkok to London Overland
A trip from July 05, 2009 to May 25, 2010, travelling to Atlanta, Nadi, Auckland, Sydney, Darwin …

I have always wanted to do it and now I am really getting underway. This is a mostly overland trip with a bit of a jump over Iran/Middle East. There are a couple of flights in Asia but mostly try to get around on my own.
I want to have a go at Australia while the currency exchange stinks for them. I would love to go to all those lovely places that I haven't before, Uluru, Kakapo, Adelaide, Cairns, whatever is convenient. Probably 3-4 weeks here. I will most likely have a flight from Auckland to Sydney, then from Sydney to Bangkok.
I figured out that i can buy a country train pass and go to the Alice, Adelaide, Melbourne, Darwin and Perth for only 590AUD which is a couple of night accommodation too (granted in a reclining seat). I plan on going to Kakadu for sure.
I would love to go on the Annapurna Trek but any trek will do - right now we are going for thirty days of walking in the himalayas - which is so awesome. Spend about 3-4weeks here. The flight is from Bangkok to Kathmandu. You can supposedly take an elephant ride down into Delhi. This is preferable to a flight of 500-600 dollars.
I want to spend about three months in India, doing whatever. I found that there is an organization that will get people up to volunteer for free around the area - this is of course much preferable to paying thousands of dollars. So after Alix leaves or before it is definitely an option.
I really would love to go here, but getting a visa as an American may be really hard. I may also need to wait until it is more spring to get here. I want to travel through the Mediterranean not sure which way. Emay will hopefully join me here.
