Eastbound, to the Stans
Happy Holidays Inmates,
The festive season seems like the perfect time to start writing another ride report. I will take you on a four months ride from Germany to the Pamir. Compared to my last ride report this one will be fewer words and more pictures. I won’t be giving a day-by-day account. So it will be much shorter.
It seemed like too much time had passed since my last big bike trip to Iran and I was itching to get on the road again on two wheels. I’m a bit of a visual traveler. I read a lot, both online and offline, and if I like the look of a place, I kind of file it away in the back of my mind as a place I want to visit. For this trip, I just had a rough idea of heading east and wanting to end up in one of the Stans. I didn’t have a fixed time frame (other than the limitations of fall and winter) and I didn’t plan all that much as far as routes go. I only got Russian and Kazakh visas before leaving home, everything else would have to be sorted out on the road. I learned on my last big motorbike trip that traveling solo, open ended, and with no fixed route is a good recipe to have some adventures.
Here is a small selection of teaser pictures to whet your appetite:
The report will have high resolution versions of these pictures and many more. I hope you’ll be along for the ride.
