Silk Road Adventure 2014: trip to the Stans part 1

Silk Road Adventure 2014: trip to the Stans part 1




Let me introduce a guy who has himself taken a trip from Poland to the Asia – as far as Kirgizia and back on his bike, taking these photos on his way and willing to post them for us all so we can see his road trip:

This May, I Stojan and 3 of my friends (Kasia, Janusz and Wojciech) went from Poland (I am from Croatia) for a trip to the ‘Stans’. It was a 2,5 months, 21000 km long trip. Unfortunately, due to the bad political situation, we had to skip Ukraine. We passed: Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Turkey, Bulgaria and Serbia. Here are a few photos, but just from the ‘Russian’ part of the trip. Hope you’ll enjoy it… I surely did!
