Re: Embassy report: Pakistan visa in Tehran

Hey guys, just to confirm that this visa IS POSSIBLE. I personally talked with one spanish motorcyclist who has done it in early 2017 and have been told about a whole overlanding Argentinan family who got it in Dec 2017. But one thing needs to be clarified: The Pakistan consul is not asking for a LO...

Re: Zahedan - Quetta border crossing (IR -> PAK)

Re: Security Pakistan

Hi guys. We just spend six weeks in Pakistan. Traveling there is relatively easy, but there are quite a few security measures in place. This usually means you get a guard following you around, or that you're only allowed to stay in particular hotels. We've compiled a list of places we went, and whe...

Pakistan / Balochistan travel safety

So I just crossed from Pakistan to India this morning, after 10 days crossing the country by land from Iran through Balochistan, Sindh and Pundjab provinces. I just wanted to share my experience and the fruit of my research on the question of security in Pakistan. I felt like there was a gap of info...

Re: Indo - Pakistanese Border

Just crossed it today on foot from Pak to India. Nothing noteworthy to mention, it's a pretty normal border crossing.

Re: Iran visa prices

The price also depends where you're applying from. In Yerevan they charge 50 Euros for 7-day turnaroud, 75 Euros for 1-day turnaround although when I applied they said it would be 2-day turnaround but I came back the next day and they had my visa ready anyway. (Same fee for French, Austrian and Czec...

Re: Public libraries with free desktops for internet access on the Silk Road

Also, just to make it clear, because you're assuming a lot of things that you don't know for a fact. I don't *expect* people to help me on my journey. I *ask*. If they refuse, I thank them anyway and wish them the best. If I don't find food or internet for a few days, I live with it, mainly because ...

Re: Entering Turkey and Georgia with ID for Schengen states citizens

When exiting Georgia for Armenia, was your passport stamped by the Georgians? Curious to know if they'll place an exit stamp even without an entry stamp. Yes they did stamp my passport I tried to let the officer know I would prefer him to use my ID to check me out but he spoke no English whatsoever...

Re: Public libraries with free desktops for internet access on the Silk Road

That's up to them, not me. I help anyone regardless of creed if I have the ability to, but I don't teach other people what they should do, that's their decision. I mean, I'm guessing you're not traveling on a Somalian passport, does that mean you should not go anywhere Somalian could never dream of ...
