Bucurii colaterale

Read the original post and follow IntoTheWorld's overland adventures on their website: Into The World.


Sunt motociclista incepatoare. Cand am plecat din Bucuresti, acum mai putin de doua luni, abia facusem 600 km pe motor. La volanul unei masini am facut chiar mai putin, poate vreo 100 km, si aia acum mai bine de o decada in urma. In mai aveam zero experienta in trafic si chiar si pe micuta mea Suzuki ma simteam un…

Dushambe, un cuibusor tadjik

Cica nu exista rau fara bine. Pentru calatori, a fi cu ochii in patru e musai: atentie si la pericole, dar si la oportunitati efemere (vocea unei femei care rasuna in fundul alei poate vesti o petrecere, un claxon de bicicleta poate semnala baiatul cu paine calda… si tot asa). In unele cazuri e o chestiune de “nas”, in altele…

Povestea celor trei orase – Samarkand

Samarkand… Numele e de ajuns pentru a face imaginatia sa zburde. Orasul care a supravietuit tragediilor si ambitiilor a doua imperii – cel al lui Tamerlan si cel bolsevic, e chiar si azi considerat un pol al culturii musulmane. Odinioara insa povestile despre aceste loc ii atribuiau un caracter nepamantean: Samarkand era o Mecca a epocii, un loc in care…

Povestea celor trei orase – Bokhara

Intre Khiva si Bokhara hotaram sa mergem in trei, si sa dam o raita pe la asa-numitele castele de nisip, adica ruinele altor orase antice. Stralucitoare odinioara, azi doar mormane – impresionante de altfel – de nisip si piatra.

 

 

 

Pistele de ajuns la castele sunt insa geniale. Iar localnicii sunt cu chef!

Imediat la iesirea din Moynak incepe dansul. Nu sunt bani. Nu e benzina. Decat de 80, si la bidoane la micii intreprinzatori, si la benzinaria din targ.

 

Mobrele gafaie si pufaie cu lichidul asta nenorocit in vintre. Parca si matele noastre fac a foame, si suntem nevoiti sa mai facem o oprire. Mancarea incepe sa sune a Asia: impartim…

Frontiera dintre Kazakhstan si Uzbekistan e cea mai imbacsita de pana acum. Vorbiti romaneste? intreaba chiar in graiul lui Basescu unul dintre camionagii din coada. De unde esti, intreb? Din Cernauti. Ce tare, ce transporti? Macarale. Uau, si unde dormi? In camion. Dar voi? In cort, normal. Si nu va e frica de scorpioni? Pai avem grija. Vedeti ca in…

Urmeza o serie de cinci ace de par. Unele sunt la deal, unele sunt la vale. Mergi usor, da? imi zice Ionut. Dumul nu arata incurajator, dar e uscat.

 

In dimineata asta suntem singuri pe munte. Ionut e in elementul lui.

Dintre toate aventurile pe care le-am trait in peste zece ani de calatorii, turul Africii pe motocicleta in 420 de zile a fost cea mai lunga si cea mai frumoasa.
Amintirile noastre sunt legate de exuberanta peisajelor, brutalitatea climei, dar mai ales de generozitatea oamenilor care ne-au primit, ospatat si ajutat, chiar daca eram niste straini. Am incercat sa povestim…

Romania 02 – 31/08
A durat ceva sa ne dam seama de asta, dar acum e clar: traversarea Zairului a fost momentul in care ne-am ‘shiftat’. Depanand amintiri din Congo cu Alper in Curtea de Arges, ne-am dat seama ca experienta asta continua sa dospeasca.
It took a while to see this, and now we do: the Zaïre crossing was…

Turcia/ Turkey – Bulgaria – Romania 30/07 – 02/08

Ca de obicei cand ne-a placut un loc, am stat la taclale pana tarziu, desi a doua zi aveam de taiat Turcia de-a lungul, din Cappadocia pana la tarmul marii Egee. Dimineata a fost panica.

Turcia/ Turkey 28 – 30/07

Pe la jumatatea diminetii celei de-a patra zi de cand suisem la bordul navei, nu mai eram singuri pe mare. Mediterana parea neschimbata, dar orizontul era intrerupt de siluetele catorva vapoare. In sfarsit! Am asteptat ca ceva extraordinar sa aiba loc, dar nu a urmat nimic deosebit. Viata la bord era prea usoara, iar trecerea…

Trebuie sa spunem asta de la inceput: am mers repede. Ne-a fost greu uneori sa tinem pasul, emotional si cultural vorbind, atunci cand tara in care ne aflam era alta uneori la saptamana. Ruta Est se spune ca e cea ‘usoara’. Partial pentru ca o poti faci cu o masina de strada automata fara probleme. Este asfaltata in intregime, cu…

Faptul ca Siria e o baie de sange ne-a anulat planurile de a traversa Orientul Mijlociu catre Asia.

Egypt, Aswan 11 – 17/07/2012
Ziua 398 din calatorie. Ajungeam in fata ‘Gaurii de sosire’ (sic!) in Egipt, dar cu mai bine de doua milenii intarziere. Egiptul antic era demult istorie, lasand mostenire civilizatiilor urmatoare comori nepretuite si mistere inca nedescifrate, de pe urma carora intreprinzatorii invadatori din sec. al VII-lea inca profita la maxim.
