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.

Kezbegi Mountains
The Georgian border was a formality in comparison to the Russian exit. I waited in a queue for 15 minutes, handed over my visa, told them where I was going and that was it. Welcome to Georgia they said and I was in. I had a simple check by customs which was basic to say the least. I…

Διαβάζοντας σήμερα για πολλοστή φορά τις δημοσιεύσεις αλλά και χαζεύοντας επί ώρες τις φοβερές φωτογραφίες του Νίκου και της Γεωργίας, που με το τζιπάκι τους άφησαν την ελληνική μαλακ… εεε … πραγματικότητα ήθελα να πω και ξεκίνησαν μια περιπέτεια απ’τις λίγες, με πρώτο σταθμό την Αφρική, έπεσα πάνω σε μια φωτογραφία τους στην οποία φοράνε τα…μπλουζάκια μας!

So the next morning we
woke up and left Istanbul in 2 groups as the 3 BMW riders had to collect their

healthy Burger King breakfast…
