Packing for the new adventure

Well the only way we know to go to Iran is though a ferry that travels only twice a week. 

After preparing our bags to go on the ferry Husain took them to the terminal for check in in the morning , a day ahead of our departure. We were leaving Kuwait on a ferry to Khorumshaher Iran. and were waiting for the call to take our bikes to be loaded. 

It was a very hot day reaching 50 deg C when we started on the road from our homes to the port. With minimum safety clothing we were allowed to enter the port to finalize the carnet and reached the ferry only to see a crane waiting for us. Previous bikers had prepared a pallet for the bike mounting so that the crane can lift the bikes from the dock onto the ferry .

 The reason was that Kuwait did not have a ramp for the bikes to be rides in. once the bikes were in the ferry we spent some time tying them down and by the time we were done we were exhausted from the heat. 

We all went to our respective home to prepare for the next day travel to Iran.
