Garry’s ride to Australia continues. Garry’s left Turkey and is now in India. Garry was meant to be heading to Iran after turkey. But after the foreign office advised against travelling there, Garry had to change his route!
He had tried to go south of Iran via Saudi Arabia but was unable to get a visa. Going north of Iran was definitely out of the question, it was winter, and the roads would have been impassable by bike! Leaving Garry only one option, to avoid the area completely, and fly to India! It was probably for the best though, Garry was already struggling to get a visa for Pakistan, and may have been stuck in Iran!
After arriving in Mumbai, Garry had a few days to acclimatise, and play the tourist, before setting off on the 1400-mile cycle ride to Bangladesh.
