Germany - Eastern Europe -Iran May 2005

Hey everybody,
I will take off in Germany around the 15th of May and plan to go thru Eastern Europe and Turkey to Iran and will than set over to UAE and Oman. I am still on my own so far but would be interested to hook up with somebody for the whole or part of the trip. I have done quite a few solos, not on a motorcycle though. I have travelled a simmilar route thru Syria, Jordan and Egypt on a bicycle not too long ago, but I am fairly new to long distance travel with an engine.
Anyways, the downside is that I have a schedule, gotta be in Oman by the beginning of July and still have to get a visa for Iran (I think in Ankara). Anybody interested? Let me know.
Oh, one more thing. I am notoriosly cheep on the road. So camping, groceries and cafe latté will be on the agenda. There are great camping spots everywhere along the route.... and nobody bothers.
Ok thats enough of my incomplete english.

Cheers
Christian

Hi Broesel,
I think you are a little to fast for me. I am leaving in June (first week) in Germany, and you have to be in Oman in beginning of July. There are only 4 weeks...
The route beginning in Turkey is quit the same, and I also thought about visiting the Emirates and Oman. Why dont you stop on your way from Hanover south in Hochheim. Thats nearby Frankfurt and should be on your way? You are highly welcome..

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
