Yoohoo from NZ !
Hey, Clive, amazing photos once again and really enjoying your blog. It really has been an amazing experience for you ! Sorry to hear about your Dad ; difficult emotions all round I imagine . The UK will seem a very bizarre country when you get home after all you have seen and done but I am sure it will be good to be a support for your Dad. We will keep the beer in the fridge for when you get back on the saddle ! Xxx

I'm sorry to hear about your dad...
you made the right decision to be near him as he goes through treatment. You might want to read jeremyaroundtheworld's recent blogs of his biking trip through the area you are about to cross although he did so a couple months ago so the weather was warmer.

Clivey dude, finally you made it to my favorite country of all! Thank you for the nice candid fotos of the people, it's like a trip down memory lane, nicest folks I've met in Central Asia and the scenery ain't too bad eh?!! Best of luck as you make your way up to Murghab and into Kyrg.. and if you see Tommy our guide from our Giselle truck days, send my regards I will come there again next travels..

Back on the Silk Road
Clive - The blogs are superb - you seem to have the knack of meeting people everywhere (your facility with languages helps!) and now you are back on the Silk Road you are reminding me of places I've seen and been to, although from a rather more comfortable seat on a Drago truck - so keep the stories coming. Not sure what your future route will be but if following our truck route the Pamirs will be bloody cold in winter so don't forget a condensation cover for the sleeping bag. I am still hoping you will get to travel down the Thai/Malay pennisula so we can meet up for a dive or two (I go back for 6 weeks at the end this month, with a week on a liveaboard). Spent a very pleasent afternoon last week over a beer or three (actually more like 4 or 5!) with Molly Eddington from the India trip as she stopped off in the UK on the way from Sri Lanka to Peru for the final bit of her 18 months travel. We both send best wishes with happy memories of our afternoon/evening session in Ellora last Jan. Kit

Good going mate
Hi mate, well done you, looks like you're having the time of your life, (probably because you are). Fantastic blog, lovely to hear all about the places you've visited and the people you've met. If only I'd had a night stop in Baku, we could have met for a beer or 6. I've subscribed now so I'll be able to follow your progress as soon as it's posted. Got to go now, cows water trough is overflowing and I need to replace the ball valve. See what you're missing. Wishing you good luck and safe cycling, take care, Nick & Jo K

Keep it up old boy!!
You are doing fab! So good to see pics of Baku and how it has changed since we were there. I seem to remember visiting a rather painful massage and sauna somewhere round this part of the world. Love the blog.... wishing I could share some of this. However off to the high Arctic for a 4 week photography project next week.... Blowing hot and cold!

Keep at it!
Hello from the States. I was just skimming the site when I ran across your latest entry. Good luck with your ride, I have always wanted to do something similar, do a tour of a part of the world I know little about. I'll be interested in reading your entries and viewing your photos. Keep at it!

I was one of the "professional couples" who met you in Alfriston back in March. I've been following your various blogs as you've made your way across Europe to the Middle East. Enjoyable reading, great shots and you seem to have had an amazing trip thus far. I wish you all the best as you enter what will be a demanding stage of your world trip. Good luck and keep those wild dogs at bay.

Hi Nick, thanks ever so much for your e-mail. I hope that you and your family are well. Soon to arrive in Malatya, Turkey where I shall be visiting Nemrut Dagi. Then approximately 3 weeks left before I shall be crossing the border into Georgia. I was intending to route via Iran, but due to there being too much information about me on the internet including my military past it will be difficult for me to obtain a visa. The trip so far has been epic and particularly Turkey has been extremely welcoming and interesting throughout. I will publish my next blog once I have entered Georgia. All the best. Clive

Antalya - Göreme
Clive, Wir sind ebenfalls seit 2 Tagen in Antalya und konnten hier endlich das Kettenprüfertool organisieren! Wir fuhren von Pamukkale über Serinhisar, Yesilova, Karamanli und Tefenni nach Korkuteli und dann runter nach Antalya - auf den Nebenstrassen wunderbare Landschaften und Menschen! Main road: Viele Touristenbusse und Verkehr. Wir werden bis voraussichtlich Donnerstag/Freitag in Antalya bleiben und nehmen dann wohl den Bus nach Aksaray von wo aus wir nach Göreme fahren wollen. Werden wohl also in etwa zur selben Zeit in Cappadokien sein - wäre schön, sich zu sehen! Bleiben wir in Kontakt - liebe Grüsse und gute Fahrt. Miguel & Nora

Efes - Pamukkale
Hey Clive! We've heard that you cycled to Pamukkale in one day, well done! The road was good, wasn't it? We've just made it here as well, just in time before the midday heat! Hope to catch up with you in Cappadocia again! Take care, safe travels. Miguel & Nora
11th July 2013

Hallo Miguel, hallo Nora, vielen Dank fuer euren e-mail. Ich hoffe es geht euch beide gut. Bin heute in Antalya angekommen. War gestern in Olympos. Viele grosse Berge von Pamukkale nach Filike runter. Warte jetzt auf Bremsschuhe und eine neue Kette die von England geliefert wird und dann gehe ich in Richtung Capaddocia. Ich denke ich werde da ungefaehr am 21 Juli ankommen und werde wahrscheinlich in eine Pension Koese mich unterkünften. Ich hoffe das wir uns da wieder treffen werden. Machs gut. Clive
