A couple of details regarding the Chinese visas might have been handy before attempting to spend 6 months travelling through the country … the six month multiple entry visa only allows stays of up to 30 days at a time (as does any Chinese visa apparently). It’s also only available to residents of Chinese territories. Double entry was the best I could do.
It’s going to need some creative planning to dip in and out of the country without involving an insane amount of flying and expense … I think I’m up for that challenge 🙂
First stop, the northern deserts sandwiched between Tibet and Mongolia.
