Bad Boys back together again

Planning and all that

Despite the pain of our last trip (great fun actually!), Lick has agreed to rejoin the Bad Boys Tour for Part 2. We have agonised for weeks over destinations but finally agreed to travel to North West China to follow some of the old Silk Road and surrounding sights. Transport arrangements have been severely delayed because of poor customer service from Lastminute.com, an alternative flight took six weeks to arrange so we couldn’t book anything else until we knew that part was confirmed. However they have finally gotten their act together so we have now built on our itinerary. It hasn’t all been plain sailing with our latest travel booking site either but we are getting there slowly, two steps forwards and one back at present. There isn’t much time left, less than one day, itinerary revised to take account of some local travel developments, but it looks like we have something that should work, we hope!

We did some training at the beginning of May but hope for no rain on tour, in fact it could be very warm Around Turpan and Kashgar by the desert.




We can hopefully update you during the trip but political sensitivities may prevent regular entries but we do hope to show you some amazing places. The map shows our projected route and mode of transport. See you all soon, Hong Kong first stop with our Morrisons shopping goodies!
