Week 13

Week 13

I spent two weeks in Uzbekistan, and although the long days in the desert were tough, the towns and historic architecture made up for it. However, I was very much ready to leave the country and head for some cooler temperatures and some more natural beauty. Introducing Tajikistan! I was thrilled to cross the border and the country did not disappoint. Straight into the mountains and instantly there were very different challenges facing me. I’m currently in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan and I’ll spend two nights here before setting off on the Pamir highway. There is a more direct route to Kyrgyzstan and then into China, but the Pamir highway is a well known route that will take me further south in the country and through some much higher passes. I’m not sure how long it will take me; weeks rather than days but I’m really looking forward to it.

    🤣🤣 “People are so dramatic”. That still makes me laugh.
    Stunning scenery though and brilliantly edited. Well done on the 11 mile hill

    Fantastic scenery and well done for braving the ‘tunnel of death’. Out of interest, how many punctures have you had so far on the trip?

      Ha. Cheers. Three punctures in total. Although should really only be two. I didn’t check the tyre when I repaired the first one and there was a piece of wire sticking through which I put a fresh inner tube right into!! Very thin wire so the pressure held for a bit but within a day it was starting to drop again! The tyres are pretty good and get out through a lot.
