10.06.2019: Tavildara – Dushanbe

We woke up just like we fell asleep the previous evening: To raindrops falling on the roof of our Hostel. Slowly, we got going and discussed the first pressing matter of the day: Will there be breakfast? Based on the remoteness and also the fact that it was pretty early, we concluded that, no, there will probably be no breakfast.

After our (more or less) successful repairs during the last days, we felt ready to conquer the mighty Pamir. Even though, Chris hadn't been able to replace his steering head bearings, he at least got them fixed so they felt like new (for the moment).

They had started in Austria seven months ago and the plan was to spend seven more months on…

First goal for the day was the border from Uzbekistan to Tadjikistan. After leaving Samarkand we could see a change in the landscape. Instead of the endless flats of the last days we could see the mountains rise in the distance. Unfortunately, the ride to the border was more of yesterdays' "100 - 60 - 50 - 60 -100" speed limits. Also, it was very windy which made the ride quite annoying. The actual border crossing was quick and easy. From our accomodations in Uzbekistan we…
