When you enter Tibet from Kathmandu you first have your baggage checked by customs, they saw my China LP & had no problem with it, they did however confiscate the Tibet LP which had the picture of a monk on the cover.

After the customs check you go through a duplicate check by the police who confiscated/stole my China LP because the map of China on page 2 or 3 included Taiwan, then had the nerve to tell me I could buy another in Beijing. Another of our group tore the map out of hers, put it in her pocket & made it through. :roll:

I made a thread on how to travel completely around the world for ~$2,000 USD. This is strictly talking transportation and nothing else...

BUT...it really shows how easy it is to travel completely around the world and not break the bank.

If you started with 16k, you'd be left with roughly 14k/365 = Right around $40USD/day. You can easily get by in a lot of places on 40USD per day...especially if you have some days where you arent doing much more than eating and walking around a new city...Days like that will bump your budget up for other days where you want to do excurions/tours...
