two wonderful weeks on Peak Lenin despite a short unfortunate incident for Nedo in the mess tent – a second degree burn on his left angle making the summit attempt impossible.
after eight hours of climbing through the night I am reaching the Lenin statue on top of Peak Lenin – my first mountain over 7000m – thanks to my new russian friend Tanja who was accompanying me
cycling the Pamir Highway from Dushanbe (Tajikistan) to Osh (Kyrgyzstan)
for three weeks it has been like: „eat – sleep – ride“, deep valleys, wide plains, fascinating mountains, it’s something of the best you can cycle…
hot, hotter, hottest – up to 45 degrees
we spent seven days in Istanbul in a nice hostel. We easily managed to get our iranian visa, maintanaced our bikes and wandered around the city
when we were looking for a spot to set our tent one evening, we were invited by this beautiful couple. They didn’t speak a word of english and nor did we speak any turkish, so our communication was limited but we could manage somehow anyway
6 wet and long days through Greece
not really how you would describe greek weather experiences – getting soaked – almost like riding in Denmark
from Brindisi, Italy we took the ferry to the greek Island auf Corfu, where we spent three days of recovery after 15 days of riding. We had a great time with Swinde’s relatives Michal and Alexander – thanks for hosting us!
