Re: Coronavirus: when can we start traveling again?

Mhm - after some initial optimism, I now believe tourism will be severely affected for very a long time. How long? Until we have a vaccine that works. It'll be interesting to see how things develop in China, where new infections appear to have (at least officially) been virtually stopped. As long as...

Re: Caravanistan improvements: suggestions?

Hi Steven,
the recently-updated pages link (https://caravanistan.com/recently-updated/) disappeared a while ago... Can I get my (almost) daily fix of what's new on your site in any way? ;-)
Thanks!

Re: Overstay Iran

Do you have check-in luggage? If yes, you probably won't be able to check in 4 hours before departure. Other than that, this plan *should* work since once you are past passport control, you are in transit and have effectively left the country. But I am no expert in this and have no personal experien...

Re: New Railway Baku-Tiblisi-Kars (Turkey)

Any update on this? I found this a while ago: https://jam-news.net/we-dont-leave-until-were-paid-workers-on-georgian-section-of-baku-tbilisi-kars-railroad-on-strike/ - there's also some interesting background information on the project and its impact (or lack thereof) on local communities. I'm going...
