Hua Hin to Almaty by train

Post by Jools » Sun Jun 12, 2016 7:01 pm

Much similar to Henry and Linda in 2014, and I can't thank them enough for their support, information and encouragement to do the trip, I am travelling through to Almaty, Kazakhstan by train.
I have set up a website cum blog for the journey and will post onto the website as often as possible.

I hope the forum moderators won't mind me posting this information.

Have a good trip, Jools. We look forward to reading your trip report. We have photos of our trip as screen-savers on this computer, and I just want to do it again. Enjoy every moment, and savour every experience.

Linda & Henry :cheers:

Have a great trip Jools. I didn't manage to follow Linda & Henry's epic trip "live", so look forward to doing so with yours. :thumb:

I'll be very interested to follow your trip on the web site posted, but do you think it is a good idea to post picture and give the address of your place in HH.

Seems, it's sometimes quite hard to be a solo traveller in China, particularly if you don't know any of the language. :D

You're very right there Bamboo. Most of the time now seems to be getting any motivation to do anything. Think the trip would be a lot better with travel mates in whatever form!!

Very good reading, though and brings me memories when I traveled in China by train in the late 80's. I had knowledge of some Chinese so it wasn't as difficult for me as some things have seemed to be for you. Just being able to read is a big advantage. Your trip to Urumqi reminded me of my trip when I did some translations between two Chinese and one Japanese. It was a bit embarrassing as the Chinese were accusing the Japanese about the happenings during WWII. The Japanese apologized but said that he wasn't even born in those days.
