Re: Car storage in Armenia?

[...] For information, the Eurasian Customs Union allows you to keep a vehicle for up to one year in for example Russia, but only if your visa is valid that long. So, last year I entered Russia with a 1 year visa with about 11.5 months left on it. My car was allowed in until the end date of the vis...

Re: Balykchy: anything to see / ruin porn?

Balychky? In my opinion, it is simply a not so interesting town. Not so much to see and not so much to do. I agree with Steven: ruins from soviet times can be interesting for some pictures or for some "look at what happened here in the past" article, but why limit ourself to this? There is beauty ov...

Re: Isyyk Kul to Uchkurgan / Uzbekistan

Quicker? I'm not sure.
More interesting? Yes, definitely.

From Chaek, to reconnect to M41, you have to turn north up to Suusamyr.
They are building a new direct road to Kazarman, but I don't think it will be ready soon.

Re: Handing over motorbike in India

I will try to answer to questions I have a reasonable answer for: Question 1: Does the Wagah border control mark my vehicle in the passport? No, they will stamp the carnet only. You can leave the country by air no problem. Bike should be exported in the next 6 months. Question 2: Can you think of an...

Re: Pakistani Visa for Italian Female

AFAIK, Milan consulate is ok if you enter the country by air, as I think your friend will do (I entered by land, coming from China)
Caravanistan used to provide LOI. I don't know if they still offer this service, but Steven can be more clear than me.
Never heard of people needing NOC to obtain visa...

Re: Qolma/Kulma pass (China-Tajikistan) border crossing reports

@Oldmanpedaling, as Steven already told you, you are wrong. @Felice I never heard of anybody crossing Qolma on own vehicle, but this doesn't mean it is not possible. I saw with my own eyes big custom buildings at the Qolma road/KKH intersection in Kalasu. Things are changing quickly in that region, ...

Re: Kazakhstan 2017 (Baikonur included)

This is really great, thank you! It is the first time that I see such a rich and detailed report about a visit to Baikonur closed zone. I tried with google translate, but it looks like he doesn't like Czech language that much. I really hope you will find time to translate your blog to english and I ...
