The Summary

In 2010 I travelled from my hometown to Kuala Lumpur, almost entirely overland, using mostly public transport. The first part of my journey followed the route of Marco Polo, Istanbul to to Kashgar, and on to the upper Silk Road in Kazakhstan. Then I flew to India for my second part of the trip, crossing through Nepal, Tibet, China and on to South-East Asia.
