A diary of my attempt to travel from New Zealand to England without flying.

Now feeling well-rested after three nights in a hotel in Bandarlampur. Tomorrow, I'm going to try to get to the west coast of southern Sumatra to visit a mountain lake called Dunau Ranau. This will involve a train trip, a bus trip, and a minibus and I might have to stay a night in Baturaja if it's too much for one day. I'm going to be heading further off the beaten track so will start taking malaria tablets.
I haven't had much of a look around Bandarlampur. Had a walk around the polluted city centre today and didn't see a single other caucasian face.
Might be outside internet coverage for a few days.
Travel by freighter from NZ to Australia, then after touring around for a bit, by sea to Singapore. From there, trains and buses through south-east Asia into China. Taking the Tran-Mongolian railway from Beijing to Moscow. Trains and buses through eastern, central, and western Europe and then a boat or the chunnel to England. This plan may change if I feel like it (especially since I might go to India). Keep reading the blog!
