Off to the other side of the world - why not take the bus!

I really enjoy travelling and love to see new sights and places. So these three bus trips really caught my imagination.

The London To Sydney Bus Service - what a way to see the world - 132 days onboard a bus travelling from one side of the world to the other.

Visiting places like London, Bruges, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Istanbul, Goreme, Cappadocia, Esfahan, Tehran, Lahore, Delhi, Taj Mahal, Agra, Varanasi, Chitwan National Park, Kathmandu, The Himalayas, Bangkok, Ko Samui, Penang, Sumatra, Bali, Kakadu National park, Ayers Rock (Uluru) and ending in Sydney.

And for those who don't like their water going down the sink the wrong way the same company now offers a London to New York route. Only 95 days mind you but you do get to see all of these places:

London – U.K., Bruges – Belgium, Berlin – Germany, Prague – Czech Repbulic, Warsaw - Poland, Vilnius - Lithuania, Riga - Latvia, St Petersburg/ Moscow – Russia, Ulan Bator - Mongolia, Beijing – China : including visit to the Great wall of China, Xi-an – China : including a visit to the Terracotta Warriors, Busan – South Korea, Vladivostok - Russia, Sapporo - Japan, Anchorage - Alaska, Vancouver- Canada, Yellowstone Park - USA, Niagara Falls - USA, The Great Lakes – USA and finally New York City.

And the baby journey, at only 48 days, but I am sure just as interesting is the Hippie Trail, following the original Hippie Trail route from Istanbul to Kathmandu. This bus trip takes in Istanbul, Cappadocia, Mt Nemrut, Tehran, Esfahan, Lahore, Golden Temple, Jaipur, Taj Mahal, Varanasi, Pokorah, Chitwan National Park and Kathmandu.

For all three routes, just image the diversity of sights, smells and cultures you will experience along the way. This will surely be an experience which stays with you for life, as will many of the friends you meet on route!

You just need to be careful you get on with the person you sit next to!

And probably not a good choice if you suffer from travel sickness!

Now should I buy a one way or a retrun ticket?
