4,500 km is close to home for Silk Rider. Take the ferry over the Mediterranean and onto the Anatolian peninsula. From there, swing by Mount Ararat and take the 600 km detour around the Turkey-Armenia border to Georgia where the roads are back-breaking and treacherous.

Finally, get some long-awaited R&R in Yerevan, catch up with friends, and take in the oh-so-pleasant culture of Armenians. The trip doesn’t end here though, because the way back should never retrace your steps if you’re looking for an exciting journey!
