 We flew from San Diego to Beijing and visited for a day. We took another flight to Lanzhou. From there our transportation was by car and twice a night-train through China into Pakistan. From Islamabad we flew to London and from there back to San Diego. Our first trip around the world. We combined two modified Silk Road trips offered by the London-based company Silk Road and Beyond . They did an incredible job and we had an experience of a life-time.
