Spring Ride March 2019

Everyone around says that spring it’s here. So we went looking for it and some snowdrops. But we somewhat missed the part where spring it’s a bit shy in the mountains side, so we ended up finding ice-falls instead of snowdrops.

Part 5 – video crossing South Kazakhstan

The next day though was one of the first decision point of the journey. All the the gang was planning to stay for one or more days on Aktau, to rest and/or take care of visa papers for the next parts of their journey. But I was already very tempted to push forward so that I could have a chance to get into Mongolia in time for Naadam, their national festivities.

Part 3 – crossing Georgia on fast forward

Here I am at the border between north Turkey and Georgia. Even though it was a long ride I have taken advantage of the fast (and police free 🙂 ) roads of Turkey and arrived quite early and quite rested. After a very uneventful exit from Turkey and an even easier customs on the Georgian side, I had the first stumble of the day: in order to ride (or drive) in Georgia you need an insurance for your vehicle.
