Head East - Motorcycle Adventure in Central Asia eBook
One incredible journey through: Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan,Kazakhstan and Russia.
The idea to write this book arose from the lack of available information concerning the destination in question.At the beginning, it was only intended to be an ordinary concise travelogue memoir that would contain everything necessary to guide anyone who wished to travel in this direction. Consequently, I reconsidered, thinking that it would be quite a pity not to be able to convey my thoughts, my feelings and emotions – everything that excited me during the whole duration of the trip. To be able to, at least a little, sense the magic of Central Asia.
