PART ONE: Gently slipping into Stan. It was finally time to enter that weird collection of countries known as the ‘Stans’! We’d opted to exit Iran into Turkmenistan, as it seemed like the ‘easy’ option....well easy compared to getting a dodgy unreliable ferry to Kazakhstan or riding a bike through Afghanistan. Entering Turkmenistan was a bit nerve racking as it’s not exactly a tourist friendly country, you have the option of paying an extortionate amount for a government tour
I'm Mike. I like stuff. Stuff like travelling and foraging for cheap kebabs. I’m also a fan of being invited to Mexican weddings and drinking Tequila with the guests. Oh I don’t mind writing the odd blog either. Balls out!!.
