I start into those 10 days alone with very mixed feelings. I am excited and curious as it will be a new experience. After spending almost every second together during the past 9 month I miss
Christian a lot. And I have to admit I am a bit scared as well.
Before we start cycling we have to deal with planning and paperwork. We decide to send ur passports to Germany, together with about 50 pages of filled forms and many passport photos to a visa
agency in Germany. We hope this increases the chance of getting visa for Turkmenistan.
After we arrived by boat from Iran to the Emirates and completing the border crossing formalities we soon start to look for a site to camp. Doing so we spot scuba divers on the beach and
after 3 months out of the water we quickly decide to join them on their second dive. We leave our bikes on the beach, stop a cab and go to rent dive gear at a shop nearby. Once back we are
perfectly in time for the night dive. It feels great to be under water again, weightless... Surprisingly good visibility and a lot to see make it a perfect start for the new country. Thanks a
lot to Harith for that! Afterwards we camp in the middle of the city...
