I'd say your best bet would be ferry to Russia then along the trans siberian highway which might take about 2 weeks as it takes about a week on the trans siberian railway and it might be cheaper to just fly.

Yeah also what will you be driving in cause when you're taking a trip through different countries the roads won't always be good so you might wana take something hardy but easy to fix and find parts for.

looks like about 9000 miles, average say 35 mpg means about 1200 litres of fuel, at uk prices (£1.40ish a litre) £1680 in fuel alone

edit, oh yeh you gotta drive back too ;)

bing is your friend here, unfortunately google maps is useless at any trip over a long distance.

you can drag the route to places you want to see and bing will work out all the details for you :)

uk prices? isnt it like 2thirds cheaper in the rest of the world haha .... also 3 of us maybe going...and have about 3000 each to spend (cant drive by my self would take longer and i would die ... lol ) ... also il probs find a standard car make for the trip like a ford or something (easy to fix and to get parts, maybe even a jeep cause they go for miles)..

Like my uncle use to say, if you have to ask how much it costs then you probably can't afford it.

Takes about 5 days non stop 24 hour driving according to bing maps. On a side note I would love to make a trip like that in my car. Just me and maybe a friend (preferably someone I can have sex with on breaks) and the open road.

Also, good luck getting a visa to go through Russia, if you have no one to sponsor you then its most likely not going to happen.
