Posted:Now this might appear strange, but I need to find all possible ways:
I'm on the verge of moving to India permanently (or "as permanent as possible"), this means I have a lot of stuff to take from Germany/ Europe.
If you know of anyone who is taking the road to India, please let me know. For example I do have two amazing crystal singing bowls that are too big as carry-on and too delicate as check-in baggage on the plane... so I need them get to India by road...
I'm ready and happy to chip in for the fuel or compensate in any other way, as it's a transport (dry and simple).
Thanks for reading and thanks for keeping me in mind/ remembering this post when you hear someone coming up with the idea of going to India by road...

Posted:There's a load of HoPpers who just came back to England from India by Land (and yet somehow managed to avoid all suicide bombers, thefts and even death by the way and what exactly is a bob blast? ) Try getting hold of Ros (fluffy napalm fairy) or via Rob Bluecat if you don't have her number, or Sandy, Twobags. If you need better contact info other than PMing them just PM me
Posted:errm, venkat - as some have proven, the road to India is still open. Pakistan is the least of your problems - just make sure you're not stopping for police in Iran. Afghanistan might be best to cross at night - whilst having full moon - without turning on the headlights.
However I heard it might not be such a good idea with a UK or DK number plate at this point...
