Without flying

Travelling from Australia to Europe without taking a single plane, what a crazy idea!. Or is it?

The internet is overloaded with informations on what vaccins to get to go to Thailand, what is the best season to visit Bali, what is the cheapest flight to Shanghai, how to make the most of 15 days in India, but it is really hard to find anything about overland trips.

How to travel from Indonesia to Malaysia on a boat? Is there such a boat? How much is a 15hour train ride in Java? How to find a sailboat for a trip from Australia to Indonesia? How to not get ripped off when booking a bus in Vietnam? What traps to avoid? What expenses to expect? Is such a trip even possible?
