This sounds like a trip of a lifetime. I expect Jokhang temple in Lhasa will be the tip of the iceberg for this spiritual adventure. I foresee tea breaks outside Cheng Du's Tian'gai Temple. Don't forget to explore the Foreigners' Cemetery on Changzhou Island, om Guangzhou, China. You may wish to take a boat down Pearl River in the Guangdong Province and savor the tranquility.

I know a very good hotel in Budapest in the city centre. I stayed there last year and I only paid 15 EUR per night. The hosts were very nice to me and the room was good. For further information watch this funny video: http://uk.video.yahoo.com/watch/3049615/8703000
Enjoy your stay
