Re: Europe to S. Korea - Best Itinerary

Yes, you can go to Mongolia. The only issue will be the Russian visa, which is not particularly easy to get on the road (although Ulan-Bator is the major exception) and a tourist visa has a maximum validity of 30 days (for double-entry tourist visas from your first entry into Russia until your last ...

Re: Europe to S. Korea - Best Itinerary

Well, you should decide first if you are willing to spend thousands of euros to get your car through China (as self-driving without a guide is not allowed). If not, your only option to get to South Korea is the Vladivostok-Donghae ferry bypassing North Korea, whose fate is unknown as it is currently...

We have biked across the Baltics, Poland and now we are stuck in Ukraine because of the border closures. Our plan is to bicycle through the Balkans to Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbajdzjan, Iran...

Re: Visit Azerbaijan after visiting Armenia with a USA passport

From experience, I had no problems at all in December 2017 arriving at Baku Airport with a November 2016 stamp for Armenia. No questions, just happily stamped in. Visiting Nagorno-Karabakh as mentioned would completely disallow entry to Azerbaijan. Yeah, Baku Airport ist the most chilled place to e...

Re: Visit Azerbaijan after visiting Armenia with a USA passport

Under normal circumstances, you can visit Azerbaijan with an Armenian passport stamp, although you will probably be bothered/questioned/interrogated at the border. You can not visit Azerbaijan with an Nagorno-Karabakh passport stamp/visa though.

Re: Uzbek Railways Website Q&A

RF means Russian Federation, so I'm quite certain that that was the issue. Annoying that they still didn't fix the payment issue though.

Re: Uzbek Railways Website Q&A

Generally the website most probably has the script which checks if the ID number is valid (most probably against the UZ format).


Yes, but this script will not check anything if the traveler selects "international passport" as their ID document.

Re: Uzbek Railways Website Q&A

I understand the error message as "Error! In one ticket, there is an incorrect selection of document (type?) not matching the personal details". Is it possible that you selected your document type as anything but "International passport"? Probably, all other types of documents ar...
