Hi David, I am leaving Germany at 3.july to Italy, then Ferry to turkey and onwards Iran, Pakistan...., at least Australia. Trying to go from Australia to Southb Africa and the Eastcoast up home again. As I wrote before, you are highly welcome to join my "bye,bye party" on 14. May here in Hochheim. You can eiteher build up your tent or sleep inhouse, however youn want. Would be nice to see you, and we might find a place to meet for same way. Lots of greetings, Helmut
i wont be able to make your party but i will be coming through in early june , i will keep in contact , i have been in contact with punny pinia from india and really want to join there trip to the highest roads in india trip in september (posted here as well)
it may be a little early but you never know ,i will keep your email , i have to visit a few more people and get my bike sorted a bit more ,i think i will hit germany at the end of the month or early june ,which way are you headed first ,would definately like to catch up around turkey as i think some of the other countries may be better with two bikes
Hi Broesel, hey canoeguy,
I am trying to leave a bit earlier. But it wont be before 1st of June. Trying to catch the ferry Ancona to Cesme (Turkey) on 4th of June. Do you already have your Visa for Iran? Did you tried to get a Tourist Visa? I failed with my Reference-Number, and know it seems that I only get a transit-Visa for 5 days.
Would be nice, and a good idea, to ride partly together. There is a nice "Meetingpoint" in Dogubayazit (Turkey), next to the Iranien border..
Hey canoeguy and helmut,
I will hit the road this weekend and after a few stops I will probably cross into Poland first, that might be already next week and then straight south-east. If you, Helmut catch a ferry around the 4th of June, I think we should team up in Turkey and who knows, maybe canoeguy can make it too. That would be awsome. No, I don´t have a visa yet for Iran. I contacted key2persia, but I am still waiting for a reply. If that doesn´t work, I will pick up a transit visa in Turkey(hopefully).
Gotta go, keep in touch and good luck, ... I will be there.
Hi Broesel, you can contact me directly with the mail button. So it might be easier to keep in touch. I am on the way with laptop for emails. See you in Turkey.., and good luck for the Iran Visa!
