Ow, I see your report wich is quite nice. I started to read, but i'll finish it later.
It woud be great to speak with you in person, or even on the phone.

You live in Antwerp i suppose...

I won't be in Antwerp for the next year... Currently in Canada and going south on a trip for the next months, so no can do... ;-)

Just finally caught up with this report after a few days. Wesley, thanks for putting this all out there - its truly an inspiration.

While I generally hold the belief that people are for the most part good - I am sure your luck with accommodation and friendliness is a mirror upon yourself and your personality. It is easy to tell from your stories that your positiveness and openness to new people and experiences pretty much carries you on this trip.

This is more than a ride report - this is a lesson on how to live a happy life! :

Pretty sure I would have risked it and stayed in Astrakhan for at least one night.

So what's new, Wesley?
I do believe you are now somewhere in central Asia
I just got back from a trip to Nordkapp and then Murmansk, St Petersburg and so on.

Im so glad your back Wesley, (exhale) These latest photos are breathtaking, and of course it looks like you havent had any problems making yourself at home with the locals. Those Kirghiz seem like a real friendly lot.

I take it the people in the photos eat a lot of horse meat? I don't see any signs of any other indigenous foods? I have been away myself and may not be up to speed on your report. What language do these people speak? Thanks.

I did that road, but in the other direction, in 2012. Stayed on the potholed road though and completed the journey in 14.5 very hard hours, rupturing my auxilliary fuel tank. ADV Blog here
