The last few days I did not have any time to write down any stories. Riding with Mirko was great fun and we had a good time together. Yesterday we went from Tbilisi to Yerevan, Armenia. Today we parted ways once we were back in Georgia. Mirko went to Batumi and will be on his way to Turkey tomorrow. I on the other hand had to get back to Tbilisi as tonight Sarah will be here and I had to make sure I will be there at least….
Now that Sarah is flying at 10 km above ground I can show you some more of the amazing scenery from Georgia and Armenia.
The Border from Russia to Georgia is in a pass and at about 2000 meters above sea level. In some parts the road is in a real bad condition but the surroundings are spectacular. Some of the following pictures I got from Mirko
We stayed in Tbilisi for the night and set off for Armenia the next morning. We stopped somewhere to get the bikes washed.
At the border we had to buy a visa and some insurance for the bike.
Then we moved on towards Yerevan, the capital. We went through a canyon and U turn after U turn we slowly made our way up and out of the mountain range. We took a high pass and visit lake Sevan.
We got in Yerevan around 16:00 and traffic like in Tbilisi is somewhat intense and you have to pay attention all the time. We had to ask a taxi to guide us to the hotel as we would not have found it otherwise. After a shower and an update on my site for you guys we went to the center, had some dinner and had a walk around.
Today we went back to Georgia we passed at some small border post at 2100 meters.
We parted ways at Ninotsminda I went towards Tbilisi and Mirko to Batumi. The road from there was amazing, in the beginning it was quite cold due to the height, but once I got lower the temp went back up and the road was twisting and turning in and out the valleys. Parts of this roads I will surly visit with Sarah again in the next few days so I did not care to much about taking pictures and I was having to much fun on those twisty roads.
It is now around 18:30 local time and I am back in Tbilisi and in the hotel I booked for 3 nights.
The bike is safely stored in the garage and now have some time to due a proper post on the site.
Sarah should be here around midnight. (it is two hours later here in Georgia) I can not wait to see here again.
Tomorrow we will have some time to visit Tbilisi by day.
Oh and about 300 km more and the bike and me did 10.000 km so far on this trip.
