ClareBear So I am really interested in to the itinerary of this trip. I cant attend because I have to go during the summer, but I would love to see your plans and maybe try them out myself.

Stefan Hi. I haven't planned this trip myself as I am no longer sure whether it will go through. Circumstances/plans change as well as finances and time frame. I may still do it if I am with the right people and the schedule works. If I was to do it I would be more inclined to do it during summer 2012.

Anyway check out http://www.seat61.com/Trans-Siberian.htm for a lot of good information on how to do it. Personally I planned on zigzagging my way around Europe on trains before starting the "journey". Slowly take the Trans-Siberian, stopping at the major attractions along the way for a rest/sightseeing. When I am in China it would start to become more of a "go where you are taken" type of travel (it is Asia after all). Maybe ditch trains when in Hanoi and motorbike to Saigon (its a very popular adventure and looks great). The rest would work itself out pretty much as planned.

I think the total cost of trains to go direct (as in no extra trains in Europe) is around 650 pounds. Depending on whether you would get a Eurail/Interrail would increase the price. It could be a relatively cheap trip if you were to Couchsurf for a bit in Europe etc.

ClareBear Well if you do plan to go during summer 2012 I would love to come along. This sounds very interesting. I originally only wanted to hop on trains and go around Europe, but Asia would be fascinating.

ClareBear I am 20 and I was originally planning a trip for summer 2013, but something came up and I am very interested in traveling with you. I too am ready to have a good time, but being responsible is definitely number one. Please let me know some details! I would love to hear back!
