More and more Eastwards: after Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Dubai, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Iran, it’s now time for these two wonderful countries. Between August 25 and September 17 we’ll be out of town.
We booked the Wizz Air ticket on January 1st for only 110 Euros! Indeed, it’s exactly one third of my monthly salary, but fortunately I always have sponsors with big hearts. And wallets. 🙂
We’ll use CouchSurfing, public transportation (shared taxis, buses, trains), plus the local airlines are extremely cheap. Also, we’ll eat in small, cheap places with the locals, so no restaurants, only if there’s not other choice.
We’ll travel to Budapest by car sharing the cost of the gasoline. I estimate that the total budget (international airline ticket, health insurance, local airline, train ticket, food, accommodation where we’ll not be able to use CouchSurfing, transport etc) will not go over 500 euros for 3 weeks.
Our general itinerary:
Astana – Almaty – Saty – Charyn Canyon – Kaindy-lake – Kolsai-lakes – Cholpon-Ata (Tscholponata) * World Nomad Games* – Karakol – Altyn Arashan – Ak-Suu – Karakol – Kazarman – Arslanbob – Osh – Bishkek – Almaty – Astana
See you in Asia! 🙂
