Re: Q&A: Door to Hell

Another nice post MerijnM. What kind of rate were you getting? Meaning how much was 500 TMT? Thanks Thanks! We changed Euros to Manat in Ashgabat (Russian Bazar) for 1 EUR = 18 TMT. It’s better to change US Dollars since this is the same rate, so I would recommend to bring Dollars. 500 TMT is € 27,...

Re: Q&A: Door to Hell

Hi there! We just came back from the fire crater in Turkmenistan. Thanks Alberto for your suggestion. We did the same. In Ashgabat we went to the Intercity Taxi Terminal which is indeed all the way up north. A lot of taxi drivers were gathering around me, it was not that pleasant but okay (one grabb...

Re: Yazd: Iran visa extension

Extended my visa in Yazd with 1 month, very easy and smooth! Extremely friendly people (especially the bald guy). It took us around 1 hrs 15 min. And indeed, as a 'western foreigner' you get immediately priority. It was very busy at the time we were there, all Afghani people waiting for their turn. ...

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

We are now staying in Kars and our Turkish Airbnb guy called the buscompany VIPturizm and they confirmed to me that the bus to Tbilisi is now running only twice a week (on Tuesdays and Thursdays). I was surprised because it used to be a daily service. It is probably due to low season (March)... We w...
