Re: (Cheapish) Accomodation advice for Mary and Turkmenabat

Hmmmm are we definitely talking about the same hotel?

Posof (TR) - Vale (GEO): border crossing reports

1. Did the border officials at Posof-Vale seem used to processing foreigners, or is it likely I'd be more or less delayed as a European citizen?

Re: Sarp border at Turkey/Georgia: reports & updates

I travelled from Kars, Turkey to Tbilisi, Georgia via the border at the Posof-Vale. It was a breeze. There is a direct bus from Kars to Tbilisi! All of that dolmus, taxi mumbo jumbo isn't needed.
