And going east along the Lycian coast; Olympos; Isparta; Capadoccia; Mont Nemrut and Mardin. Heading north until we reach the Black Sea coast. On June 24, 2019 we moved to Georgia.

IRAN: In Iran we took a tour through the country for two months
PAKISTAN: We spent a month in Pakistan
INDIA: In India we was 17 months, having to renew the visa many times. The reason for being so many months was the closure of the borders due to COVID.
- India from north to south. Our journey from when we entered India in December 2019 through Lahore until we arrived in Puducherry where we were caught by the pandemic and had to stay there in March 2020
- India from south to north Our journey since the lockdown was lifted in October 2020. We leave Auroville for northern India to Rishikesh
Due to the Covid pandemic, the borders with neighboring countries were closed and we were unable to move on to China. The transition from India to Pakistan was finally able to do in April 2021, after many negotiations with the corresponding agencies in India and Pakistan. There, in Pakistan, we were practically attached to China, which was our initial objective, specifically on the border of Khujerab National Park. In this second stay in Pakistan, we spent seven months touring the northern area after which we managed to move to Iran also after many efforts. Then we spent another month in Iran and another month in Turkey, from where we started the road back to Spain, arriving in Madrid on December 15, 2021
Soon we will put the links with the missing itineraries: The itinerary of our second experience in Pakistan; the new itinerary through Iran and the routes we made through Turkey and Europe to return to Madrid.
