Re: Sentiment towards Americans

Hi there, I travelled around the Pamir Highway last May, albeit not on a bike (cheater, I know) and I can provide a bit of feedback on security and other things. The French guy you met is sort of right, in the sense that the Wakhan doesn't feel at all 'edgy'. The most security I saw was on the Dusha...

Re: Where are you going? Why?

Love your enthusiasm, Fabrizio! And love your taste in music! Let me tell you, Mulatu Astatke is still huge in Ethiopia (based on Ethiopian restaurant music, not on actual being in Ethiopia). And Tinariwen also magically fits as a soundtrack for road trips through Kazakhstan. May 2018 bring you (an...

Re: Where are you going? Why?

Hi Steven adding my 2p's worth. I'm Fabrizio, from Italy. Unlike most of the users of this fab website - we can't really thank you enough - I'm one of those sad souls with a job, 26 days' leave per year, a mortgage and other uninspiring commitments, so my trips tend to be dashes rather than long, le...
