MADRID - NEPAL BY BIKE.
Turkmenistan
I remember crossing the Turkmenistan border from Iran, it was the first country that I visited of the 5 that made up the hard bloc of the former USSR until 1991.
To this day, it can be said that together with Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan they are sovereign and independent countries.
I will remember Turkmenistan for many reasons but there is one in particular that made this trip worthwhile.
Without a doubt, the fact of having spent a night next to the Darvaza crater in the Karakum desert was something I never imagined with and today I continue to keep that experience as one of the most significant moments of the trip.
