Picking a route

 

I will be traveling generally eastwards. After flying from Vancouver to Amsterdam, I'll go overland to Nepal, then from Thailand to Laos and beyond. Various details are described below, per country. If I find valuable info for other travelers, it will be posted here.

 

I will be using a GPS during the trip. Here's how.

 

Below is a list of countries as I plan to visit them, roughly.

 

The Netherlands

Italy
Greece
Turkey
Syria
