Antwerp to Istanbul, Armenia, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria - Oct 200
My brother and I (and a F800Gs and 650 Dakar) will be arriving in Antwerp via cargo ship from the US around Oct 6th, 2009.
We're planning on riding a clockwise loop around the Mediterranean Sea. We have a basic itinerary through Germany, CR, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria to Istanbul. Then along the Black Sea coast in Turkey to Yerevan, Armenia where we'll be spending about 10 days in late October/early November. After that, south to Tabriz, Iran (visas permitting) and across southern Turkey into Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and on to Morocco.
We're looking for people to meet and ride with anywhere along the way. We're planning on taking a 2-3 months to explore and are interested in finding off-road alternatives to highway travel. We're especially looking for riders and contacts in Iran, Libya and Algeria.
