until then

Posted on

I’m staying in Batumi, in an old apartment that has been turned into a hostel. The walls are almost twice as high as a person, and they are covered in wood panels. I mostly stay put on a couch, reading, having trail mix and tea, playing Mario Kart, listening to the sound of heavy rainfall outside.

Soon I’m off to Tbilisi. I’ll stay there for a few weeks, then I’ll fly to Germany to see my family and sort out some things. I hope I can return to the walk by the end of March. Still, I don’t know how to get a permit to cross the Bosphorus Bridge. I’ve asked a Turkish journalist and the German consulate in Istanbul for help, maybe something will turn up. Someone suggested walking back and forth on a ferry.

You will not be hearing from me much. If you’re bored, maybe you haven’t already watched the little Kazakhstan – Uzbekistan video I made a while ago? You could also read one of the travel books I’ve reviewed over on BookSlap, or responsibly sample some vodka at SlowerPulse. Otherwise there’s always a lot of porn on the internet.

Oh, and if you’re looking for Christmas gifts, check out the prints, shirts, and mugs from The Longest Way. I made them so people can support the project and get something to remember me by.

Until then, gang!
