    Hello,

    I am a nube here, at last if it comes down to writing ;-) Have read a lot and love that site for its information.
    Currently I am on my second round the world trip. First one for my wife :-D and we started travelling the entire summer around the Caucasus Region since mid of May. Starting in Georia, staying for football reasons a couple of weeks in Russia, being 3,5 weeks in Azerbaijan and are now back on our way to Georgia after being for three weeks in Armenia. In October we are continiuing to Iran.

    We do have a youtube channel and publishing on a regular basis 5-8min videos from the Regions we have travelled. The entire Caucasus is worthwhile staying longer than just rushing thruough.

    Hope you enjoy the videos and the work I put into them.

    Here is the latest one:

    And here is the link to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPjtQGUf5alj6Bk_jVzO_Dg

    Safe travels wherever you are,

    Jan

    We rode the legendary road to Tusheti region in Georgia with its Abano Pass over 2950m all gravel. After we tried to find information from other travellers and the internet, we met a whole bunch of Heros ;-) who had ridden the enormous dangerous road… I think personally it is just a matter of you driving skills … anyhow it is a must for anybody visiting the region. Enjoy

    Further West of Tusheti are the Regions of Racha und Svaneti. From the Northeast coming we took the back door tu Ushguli and went offroad through the breathtaking high mountains of the Caucasus... enjoy!

    Further to Mestia we went and continued to leave the high Caucasus Region for direction of Armenia, but not without having a interesting and laughing chase by the georgian police through the forest :-)

    Last video from our time in the Caucasus region. Tomorrow we are entering Iran and are exiting for all new experiences… It was a wonderful time here and, of course, we did not see all we wanted.

    Enjoy!

    We entered Iran without any issues, but with a very warm welcome. The hospitalitiy of the Iraniana are breathtaking and we enjoy our stay here again from the very first moments.

    Hi,

    after 2 weeks we had the time to cut a new video being able to upload it, despite certain internet access challenges . From the north of Iran we went further to the west and to the region of Kordestan close to the Iraq border.




    Have fun
