I am that Spanish guy in the beginning of a RTW trip... been posting here quite often lately.
I am currently in Beyneu Kazakhstan and need advice regarding my following weeks. I travelled fast up to this point because my visas for Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan are already counting, but now I want to take time and enjoy the Silk Route cities. Although I am afraid I don't have much time.
Also I have one big question regarding what to do after Uzbekistan. My plan is to go into Kyrgyzstan and spend a few days there. Then back to Almaty and leave to Russia before my Kazakhstan visa expires. But I have no clue what route to follow in Kyrgyzstan or what is worth visiting.
I am on a fully loaded r1200gs and can camp if needed and I have no clue what I am doing most of the time.
How do you see the following planning for Uzbekistan and how would you fill the days in Kyrgyzstan?
Thanks a lot!
