Samara – last post until early August

Tomorrow morning, we head off to Kazakhstan, so this is our last post until around 3rd August, when we get to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, 2700 odd kms away. Because of the route we’re taking, heading south towards the Aral Sea, then onto Shymkent then east to Bishkek, we don’t expect to get much if any wifi.

It feels like the adventure is about to begin – the butterflies have been fluttering a little for me because of the state of the roads but I am so looking forward to camping and the open vast areas of Kazakhstan!!

Here are some images of our time in Samara – we haven’t had much time to explore it with all the work we’ve had to do but it has been very interesting and enjoyable.

Good bye ’til Bishkek – and wish us luck!!
