Not sure if lots of planning is always the best path to tread when you're Treading Your Path @juan_p One of the best trips that I ever made was overland to India ... long ago in the late seventies. Just set off with a rucksack and bus ticket to Thessaliniki in Greece - which, in the event took me to Athens, and from there found a cheap bus to Istanbul. By chance met three lads there who were headed Eastwards in a very beat up old VW van and joined them as far as the Indian border, then went off on my own. It a great trip - took in Greece, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. None of it was planned ... the rucksack was abandoned for a shoulder bag along the way - learned to travel light. Some of it was dangerous, all of it was fun, and to this day I'm glad I set out. Saw amazing things - the Acropolis at night, the dawn coming up over the Silk Road in bandit country in Eastern Turkey and many, many more. Had some amazing experiences - like being chased by sword-wielding Afghanis and driving down the Khyber Pass. Stayed in very many incredible places, one was a village in the hills of Northern India, within walking distance of the Dalai Lama's home ...
Then there was setting out for Japan with a one way ticket, no visa and nothing really planned. That was 34 years ago and as I type this the stunning Tokyo night skyscape is stretching out to the horizon below the balcony.
