This is a dedicated blog covering my overland rail trip to Australia departing from London on 27 August 2011. I’ll be travelling on standard trains, overnight sleepers and a couple of luxury trains, if I can connect up with them in time.
It could comfortably be done in 25 days but there are just too many fascinating lands between Europe and Australia so I’ll be meandering slowly across the planet.
I aim to roll into Sydney in early November but journeys end will be Perth in mid November.

Got my visas
Hooray I've just picked up my passport with all the necessary visas in place. Bit of a last minute panic but I could'nt have got them all in time without using a visa procurment agency - but what a price! Just need a few tickets now.
