The great Caspian sea! - la mer Caspienne enfin !

After 75 hours of train in Kazakhstan, we finally arrived in Aktau, near the Caspian sea, in the morning, and went straight to the cheapest hostel recommended in the lonely planet. For Kazakh standards, it was really cheap indeed (7EUR), but it was maybe the most disgusting room we ever went to in our lives (and what a horrible black and salty shower !!)


After having a little rest, we went straight to the sea, were we met two nice polish backpackers. The sea was really ...

Wait a minute.....or two.

... the four stamps. A process that should only take 15mins took 2hours.

Paper in hand, car at the gate, just to add a little bit more insult to injury Wallsy was subjected to one more demand for money, money, money and a complete unpack of the car by the guard before finally being granted freedom.

I ate some of this and made a cup of Earl Grey Tea, felt more than a little bit weird smelling the herbal aroma that reminds me of home while watching Kazakh TV. I made my way to the beach, or not quite beach but ...

Day 25: J#58 Tbilisi to Almaty to Aktau

A travel blog entry by latitudeproblem

... apart from Aktau where I planned to spend a couple of days, swimming in the Caspian and shaking my fists angrily in the direction of Azerbaijan. At Tbilisi airport I met the former ambassador to Kazakhstan, Richard Lewington, who gave me some valuable info about the area as well as some contacts. I couldn’t really imagine calling anyone when I got there and telling them I knew the former ambassador but it may be worth something.The Air Astana flight was full, and full ...
