Barcelona to London, Sun, Sand and Plenty of History.

When I arrived in Barcelona it was Sunday, the temperature was in the high twenties (Celsius) and due to a Triathlon closing the main roads the traffic was chaotic, this was my initial view of the City.   After finding some fuel and lunch it was time to get out and head south along the coast. Spain just likeContinue reading “Barcelona to London, Sun, Sand and Plenty of History.”

Berlin to Barcelona, An Eagles Nest, Stunning Mountains and a Leaning Tower.

So after 4 days in beautiful Berlin it was time to leave and start travelling south where the weather should be a little warmer…hopefully.   Berlin was a great City, very easy to get around, friendly people and plenty to see but it was time to move, so I jumped onto the nearest Autobahn and rodeContinue reading “Berlin to Barcelona, An Eagles Nest, Stunning Mountains and a Leaning Tower.”

Bulgaria to Berlin and the Beautiful Balkans.

Moto Camp in Bulgaria is the kind of place you can stay for a long time if you are not careful, it has a never ending stream of Overland Travellers coming through the gates.   Shortly after I arrived Nick turned up from the UK riding a Royal Enfield, he is riding it to India throughContinue reading “Bulgaria to Berlin and the Beautiful Balkans.”

Batumi, Georgia to Idelivo, Bulgaria and a Beautiful Turkey In Between.

After four hot and humid days in Batumi I was happy to be leaving the crowds behind in Georgia and heading towards country number 13, Turkey.   I had no idea what to expect when I arrived at the border after nearly being crushed by an erratic Georgian Bus Driver.   It was very humid and had startedContinue reading “Batumi, Georgia to Idelivo, Bulgaria and a Beautiful Turkey In Between.”

Aktau, Kazakhstan to Batumi, Georgia, Four Months, Most of Asia and 20,000 Kilometres Down, Over Half Way There.

I arrived in Aktau on Saturday with the intention of getting on the Infamously unreliable Ferry to Baku, Azerbaijan.   The Ferry Office was closed on the Saturday so I decided to wait until they opened first thing Monday morning.   My first big mistake is assuming it works this way in Kazakhstan as the Ferry arrivedContinue reading “Aktau, Kazakhstan to Batumi, Georgia, Four Months, Most of Asia and 20,000 Kilometres Down, Over Half Way There.”

Dushanbe, Tajikistan to Aktau, Kazakhstan With a Big Hot Chunk of Uzbekistan Thrown In.

Osh, Kyrgyzstan to Dushanbe, Tajikistan. The Pamir Highway, Best and Worst Road Travelled.

After 5 days in Osh it was time to move on again, I would leave Osh and travel south into Tajikistan and follow the famous Pamir Highway south and then east along the Afghanistan Border to Tajikistan’s Capital Dushanbe.

Almaty, Kazakhstan to Osh, Kyrgyzstan, A Canyon, Beautiful Lakes and Nothing But Spectacular Mountain Ranges.

After nine days in Almaty I was bored and it was well and truly time to move on, Bike serviced, clothes washed and food stocked.   The day before had rained heavily most of the day so I was praying to the Rain Gods and to the Lunatic Driver Gods that I get out of AlmatyContinue reading “Almaty, Kazakhstan to Osh, Kyrgyzstan, A Canyon, Beautiful Lakes and Nothing But Spectacular Mountain Ranges.”
