Hi Steven and everyone!

I'm French and hitch hiking my way back to France from China. I planned it to last 5 months.

Your website helped me a lot making decisions about where to make the visas.

My plan :

Kazakh visa in Urumqi (I'm already waiting for it)

Uzbek visa in Almaty (I just sent a request on your website to get a LOI)

Iranian visa in Bichkek (I'm doing it with Pars Tour Agency)

Turkmen visa in Taschkent (Transit visa)

My questions : Obviously I won't tell the agency that I'm hitch hiking, but that I am travelling by train and bus. However, can I send them an itinerary that goes from the Turkmen border to The Turkish border or is it to risky? If not, should I fake to take a plane from Bichkek to enter Iran and leave the country by plane to Istanbul? Is there another way?

I saw that you advice to avoid putting border areas on the itinerary, which explains my questions.

I will put embassy reports for every step.

Thanks a lot for your website and your help!

Iran does not care if you go to Turkmenistan or Turkey, it's even pretty logical from a tourist point of view. So you can just write that imo.
