I'm on my way to Nepal

I started about 2 weeks ago from The Netherlands on my Africa Twin.

I'm now in Istanbul, Turkey.

Final destination: Nepal via Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan (Pamir Highway), Kyrgyzstan, China (Kashgar and Taklamakan Desert), KKH, Pakistan and India.


When I get back to The Netherlands (July), I'll post a full report on advrider. For now, have a look here:

BR,

Emile

wow!! best wishes for a safe journey! Thanks for the link to your blog but it doesn't seem to work.. The link isn't connecting it says:

"There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file."

we hope you can update this thread from time to time

Works fine on my system. Try clicking the "Trip" link and then going back to the original page, that seemed to resolve a couple picture problems. But otherwise it seemed to work fine.

Blog back online

Sorry guys, I was updating the server software (WordPress) to a newer version this afternoon. And as expected, things didn't work right away.

The site should be ok now. You may need to hit 'Reload' in your browser.
Please let me know if it's ok now.

Yes, I'm still in Istanbul .. I really enjoy the city and decided to stay a bit longer. I'll be off tomorrow further east (Göreme). Should hit the Iranian border in about a week.

Great trip, I'm very interested on how you progress through China. If you can leave from a different border crossing and don't need an escort along the way, then I'm very interested!

Good luck and I will follow your blog.
