Almaty – Kiinan rajalle

Matkalaukku tärisee – otamme varaslähdön Bangkokiin

 

Lähdemme suunniteltua aikaisemmin Bangkokiin. Muutamat matkustajat toivoivat aikaisempaa lähtöä niinpä ehdotin pikavuorolaisten whatsapp -ryhmässä ideasta, joka siis hyväksyttiin.

Aiemmin lähtö olisi tapahtunut 22. lokakuuta nyt lähdemme matkaan lauantaina 20. lokakuuta. Pelivaraa on silti vähän, mutta tämä mahdollistaa paremman reittivalinnan stani -maihin. Matkan aikana käydään kaksi kertaa Kirgisiassa ja kaksi kertaa Kazakhstanissa.

– Ensi viikosta aloitamme Venäjän viisumeiden hakemisen jonka jälkeen Kiinan viisumi.

– Kazakhstaniin ja Kirgisiaan ei tarvita viisumia.

– Syyskuun aikana täytämme sähköiset viisumihakemukset Tajikistaniin sekä Uzbekistaniin

Reittimme on pitkälti suunniteltu aina Bangkokiin asti. Toki silti aina muutokset ovat mahdollisia elleivät jopa todennäköisiä. Koskaan ei voi tietää kun kyse on näin pitkästä matkasta, mutta mikä on varmaa niin mieletön seikkailu tästä on tulossa – mahdollisesti jopa Pikavuoro historin suurin sellainen! –
