But it wasn't long before she was carefully plotting a route that would cover 45, miles - almost twice the circumference of the earth - coasting along the world's most remarkable railways; from the cloud-skimming heights of Tibet's Qinghai railway to silk-sheeted splendour on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
Packing up her rucksack - and her fiance, Jem - Monisha embarks on an unforgettable adventure that will take her from London's St Pancras station to the vast expanses of Russia and Mongolia, North Korea, Canada, Kazakhstan, and beyond. The ensuing journey is one of constant movement and mayhem, as the pair strike up friendships and swap stories with the hilarious, irksome and ultimately endearing travellers they meet on board, all while taking in some of the earth's most breathtaking views.

This was where the serious part of the journey took place and I spent ten days in North Korea followed by a period in Tibet and then in Xinjiang Province in northwest China. From there I travelled across the border to Kazakhstan then back home through Russia and Europe again. It might seem like a zig-zagging route to some, but it was the only way I could stay overland as much as possible and wind in the specific areas I wanted to visit while treading within the lines of visa restrictions.
