The Plan

Well it's been 10 years since we started our RTW trip and we didn't at that moment ever dream that it would lead us hear. For the past two years we have been toying with the idea of going to Norway's Nord Cap through Russia.  Finally this year we decided to do it , but how since we cannot go north through Syria or Iraq the option was to either ship to an EU country or go through Iran.

Today Ali and Hussain, Came by and we went through our planned route to North Cape , or Nord Cap. Whichever you prefer. It entails taking the ferry to Iran, then Armenia, Georgia, Russia, then Latvia Estonia, and Finland before reaching Nord Cap in Norway. We then Ride back into europe via Sweden , Denmark , Germany , and the Netherlands. We intend to end things in Germany and then fly back to Kuwait.

Looking at a map is much more easier and fun than looking at a screen especially when planning. although we alway have a laptop handy to get info on distances etc.

We are all excited about the trip and understand that there is a chance that Iran may not let the bikes in since they are more than 250cc and they now enforcing this rule on tourists. It is one of those we will go and see what happens.
