One Wild Journey, One Crazy Couple, One Life to Live
Thats Right! Kabul, Afghanistan to Cork, Ireland in a ’68 VW bug, following in the footsteps of some other crazy cats.
Look forward to hearing more–especially when you return from Wakhan
I wanna come along with you! Is there room for a wide bottomed berth and a baby seat? I fear not … Okay I will follow vicariousy …and peraps join you on the latter stages of your trip – perhap along the Frenc Riveria or your final route throuh the emerald isle!
Would love to meet up anywhere along the way! We can arrange a babyseat somewhere, I am sure. How does the roof sound? If not, it would be great if you meet us in your own mode of transport – we could use the safety of a convoy
I never thought of that–what a great idea–lets plan on a rendez vous and I will travel with you for awhile. Try to pick a safe part please.
Lets find somewhere you can get a campervan – then I can use the amenities!
I am a bit skeptical on this one. But great you visited the Wakhan corridor. I just got a visa for Pakistan – and it looks like the visa procedure for Iran is not unsurmountable. But I think I will just fly from Lahore to Mashad and not even try to bike in Afghanistan (or in Baltistan or Baluchistan for that matter). Good luck !
Great! You can let me know the visa procedures for when we head to Iran next year. When are you heading to Pakistan?
It’s an on-line process. See http://www.iranianvisa.com. The payment process was the most complicated. Just go on one of the Lonely Planet travel forum and you’ll find all you need… 😉
Thanks! Will we see you anywhere?
Oh – and I’ll be heading to Pakistan as soon as I have my visa for India – which should not take more than a week in Kathmandu. So I intend to bike through western Nepal, the Indian Himalayas and then to Lahore this month (September), and Iran should be October-November…
Depends on where you are and what you plan to do… I will meet up with Maria – and perhaps another friend – in India (not sure where – probably either Leh (Ladakh) or else its more worldly capital city). What are your plans?
This is marvelous. Cheering you on from Canada.
Thanks Les! Too bad we can’t drive that direction….
I’m an auto journalist (Toronto Star) and a good friend of Jen Rowell’s, who sent me the link to your fantastic story. What is the time line for your journey?
Thanks for writing! the aim is to leave in July. We have NO idea how long we’ll take! Playing it by ear at this stage, but given that the car has no heat, we’d better be back before the cold hits 🙂
Can you send me your contact info?
I’d like to talk to you!
Thanks for writing Lesley. I just sent you an email as that would be the best way to connect given my location. Nice to meet you!
