Finally around 8-9 AM, Turkmenistan let us in and we were back among SUV’s and Diesel. Getting out of customs took some time but everyone has been cordial and warm with us. I could feel Dhanno crying out loud for a much needed service but we were not sure where to get it done… [Coming Soon]

    This is such a great idea 🙂 I’ve heard of bicycle tours, people who hitchhike and of course people who road trip within a country, but driving on such a vast scale and for such a good cause I have not heard of before! Kutos to you, and thanks for inspiring me to keep going on my own journey

    Hi Shoeb,

    It would actually depend on which country/ies you wish to enter?
    1. Many countries accept “Carnet-De-Passage”, it is a visa kinda document for vehicles.
    2. China has its own mechanism and charges heavy duty on vehicles entering China, they wont even recognize international license.
    3. You are free to cross borders within Europe provided you have valid motor insurance.

    Let us know if you have any other questions 🙂
