After having weekend meeting with couple of guys who are planning trip to same area, I’m now thinking of including Pamir Highway to the trip as well. This just means taking two extra countries to the list, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan…

So something like this:


This also means extra 2-3 thousand kilometres driving, but it should be worth it!

This coming summer the adventure will be one of a kind. Nothing like the journeys before to Spain and Creek.

This journey is called ‘Around Black and Caspian Sea 2010’.

Plan is to drive from Finland through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria to Turkey where there will be a stop for two weeks when my family is flying in there.

From Turkey journey continues through Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia back to Finland.

Here is a rough map of the journey:


My original plan was to drive only around Black Sea, but as Georgia and Russia have not opened the border for foreigners, I had to include Caspian Sea to the trip as well!

Trip planning is fully on...
