Kristabike:  My favourite bike journeys

“Walking with nomadic camel herders and drinking yoghurt from big pots balanced on the heads of colourful women with jingling ankle bracelets, kohled eyes and hand-embroidered clothes, the threads of one world weave into another.
In Quetta, I rest and meet another cyclist heading towards Europe. We decide to cycle to the Iranian border together. The sun has hit the desert, fading the landscape and blasting my lips so they crack when I smile. Caught in a sandstorm and facing harsh weather, we decide to travel by night. With the light of the moon outlining the road and silhouetting the dunes, strong spring winds blow toward us all the way from Turkey and finally we cross the border into Iran.”
