One man, One motorcycle, One mountain - Kavkaz.
« on: November 15, 2016, 10:46:21 »
Hi,
here I will show you my trip to Georgia trough Turkey. I put 5500 km for 8 days. I stay on tent by the side of the road in Turkey. I go to Kavkaz mountain and east shore of black sea. First day my distance was 1340 km fro 16 hours, it was very comfort on my Varadero :).

I passed trough Tortum lake:



And Tortum waterfalls:



I sleep on tent 2000 m altitude in Karagöl Sahara Milli Parkı:



Than enter Georgia, go to Stalin museum:

How is the border-crossing between Turkey and Georgia and the Black Sea Coast route? That strech is - still - high on my 'wish-to-do' list...
Founder of VIM, that's why I am in!

No problem on borders 15 - 20 minutes to cross. I pass all two borders. But during the summer crossing from Turkey to Georgia on Sarpi - Batumi is not good because of hi season traffic, I cross the other border. On the back no problem. Nice scenic road you can see near to the sea, but slow.

What a great trip!
Too bad it is too far for me, but who knows?  :)
