Tours

Erzurum to Yerevan
by Igor Kovse, tour started July 2016, submitted 30 December 2016
Europe: Turkey, Georgia, Armenia

Once in a lifetime everyone returns to the basics. For example, by asking oneself how it all began? The Big Bang theory says it all started from the singularity and in less than a second everything we know today was created, including such complex organisms as, e.g. the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology. Some people however doubt about it and, missing probably the spiritual component of the problem, resort to the age-old interpretation of the Bible. There the creator fixed everything in six days. But - surprise, surprise - just a few centuries later, the creator changes his mind and sends the Flood over his creation. They say that to err is human, but it is not really fitting for the creator. The thing was ripe for a thorough investigation, so I went along the path of Noah - to the research path in the Caucasus.

Europe: Georgia
language: it

Noi a Batumi avevamo un messaggio da portare. Fummo investiti della funzione di ambasciatori di pace dal Comune di Verona per incontrare la Municipalità di Batumi e per suggellare un patto di amicizia iniziato tra le due città nel 2015. Fu l'occasione per sperimentare quella che si ritiene la più viva e particolare tradizione il del popolo georgiano: il pranzo. Le sue regole, l'abbondanza e la bontà dei cibi, i brindisi e la figura del Tamada permettono di leggere una, tra le più belle pagine, della tradizione di questo Paese.

Georgia e regione Svaneti-seconda parte
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2014, submitted 19 September 2015
Europe: Georgia
language: it

Ma lo Svaneti, il vero "free Svaneti", inizia da Mestia. In questi luoghi arrivò con le proprie spedizioni Vittorio Sella, nipote del politico Quintino Sella che fondò il Club Alpino Italiano. Fotografò paesaggi, abitanti e loro usi. Le sue immagini sono ora oggetto di un pregevole volume del TCI e CAI che ne traccia la figura di fotografo alpinista esploratore. Una descrizione in quel volume della regione chiamata Soanezia, sembra scritta nei giorni in cui ci trovavamo dinnanzi agli stessi luoghi: "Non vidi mai natura alpestre così bella, così serena, grandiosa, pittoresca per forma e colorito. Temperatura deliziosa, calma adorabile, l'Usbha sublime fra cumuli leggeri. La Soanezia nelle belle giornate di ottobre è un vero Paradiso".

But Svaneti, the true "Free Svaneti", starts from Mestia. In these places he came with their shipments Vittorio Sella, nephew of the politician Quintino Sella who founded the Italian Alpine Club. He photographed landscapes, people and their customs. His images are now the subject of a remarkable volume of TCI and CAI that traces the figure of photographer mountaineer explorer. A description in the volume of the region called Soanezia, seems written in the days when we were in front of the same places: "I never saw alpine nature so beautiful, so serene, majestic, picturesque shape and color. Temperature delicious, adorable calm, the Usbha sublime among heaps light. The Soanezia on fine days of October is a true paradise. Read the book "Georgfia e

Quando viaggiare non è solo spostarsi da un luogo all'altro per ritemprare il fisico, ma un incontro con culture e storie differenti, il viaggio può dimostrarsi l'occasione per raccontare.

L'esigenza di scrivere nasce dalla consapevolezza di aver vissuto momenti unici e dal desiderio di condividerli. Per me è successo anche in questo viaggio e, dopo aver scritto il libro che rivela tutti i particolari, propongo al lettore una sintesi dell'itinerario, sicuro che apprezzandolo andrà a gustarsi anche la lettura più completa del libro "Georgia e svaneti,gamarjoba". Periodo di effettuazione del viaggio: prime tre settimane di giugno 2014.

Fahrradweltreise ''Reise zum Horizont''
by Nicole Franke and Tobias Pieper, tour started March 2009, submitted 22 February 2011
language: de, en, es

Die Reise zum Horizont war ein Traum, eine verrueckte Idee. Heute ist sie Wirklichkeit, eine bewusste Entscheidung, eine Weltreise mit dem Fahrrad. Am 15. Maerz 2009 in Oldenburg (Deutschland) gestartet, ist das Ziel die ''weite'' Welt. Mit dem Anspruch, den Weg weitgehend mit dem Fahrrad zurueckzulegen, ist es ein Erfahren fremder Laender und Kulturen, auch bzw. besonders jenseits klassischer Touristenziele.

Originally round-the-world but now much more interesting
by Tom Allen, tour started June 2007, submitted 22 January 2010

This is my travel blog of several years on the road. It started life as a round-the-world trip, but before long I realised that A-to-B cycling isn't as interesting as getting off the beaten track and really exploring a place. So since I left home I've had as much time off the bike as on it, earnt more than I've spent, learnt a new language, met an amazing girl and got married to her! Eager to travel by bike as a couple, we're currently seeing where this new dimension takes us.

I prefer to write about the way the trip affects me psychologically and about the cultural, political and historical curiousities I encounter. It's an uncomfortably personal story at times, but I think it's more interesting than reading pages of distance measurements, road conditions and visa hassles.

My creative outlet comes through photography and video which I also share on the site - I carry 6kg of camera equipment and don't regret it for a second!
