It's been a tough week crossing the mountains of Georgia after a few weeks baking in Turkey.
I am thrilled to be able to say that JamesVsWorld has now had over 10,000 hits! This is largely thanks to you guys and I wanted to say thank you for supporting me and supporting JamesVsWorld.
I have just posed a VIDEO SPECIAL blog to say thank you and give you a taste of some of the videos I have made on this trip, over 8 hours in total!

Also, on Wednesday will be my belated post on Albania (Of Wolves and Wild Camping), and Istanbul and Georgia shouldn't be too far behind.

So you gotta go round then. To the north is the way that I've seen most people do it, Kazakhstan & China. Can you even go round to the south? Greece, Crete, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE & a ferry to Pakistan, is that even doable?
All the best finding another route!
I was gutted about Iran. I even went to the consulate in Trabzon, Turkey, in person. Unlike the Germans, Dutch and Moroccan people I was queuing with, I wasn't even allowed in the door. I was turned away after the guard saw my passport.
I decided to take the most commonly travelled route, across Turkey to Georgia and Azerbaijan and then a ferry to Kazakstan and Uzbekistan. My plans get a little hazy after that.
