Because we don´t have the
carnet de passage, the only
way out of Armenia is going back to Georgia.
left Armenia earlier, because she had to go to Turkey for a few days.
So I was alone decided I want to drive from Yerewan to Ninotsminda
crossing the border in Bavra (the border crossing on the left).
The first thing we do every morning is boiling water for our coffee. We use the gas stove for it.
One of the advantages to
have a mobile home is the already installed gas system. It is
connected to the fridge, gas stove, heater and warm water depot (yes,
that is correct we can have a warm shower 🙂 ). We have space to
storage two 11kg gas bottles.
In wintertime when we used the heater everyday for 12-15 hours (temperature dropped to -8°C) a bottle lasted around 5 days. Now in spring time we use the heater every now and then, one bottle is enough for around 2 weeks. In summer time is around 4 weeks or even more.
Here are some interesting facts for travelling Georgia with a car:
Both, Duygu and me can stay up to 1 year without a Visa in Georgia. But be careful with your car. It is only allowed for 90 days inside. Then you would need to make a visa run with it. Going outside and returning the same day is possible. I guess there would be also a possible to go to the department of transportation. But we haven´t got any information about it.
in the Schengen area, I remembered border crossings in Europe from my
early childhood as something very easygoing and as a child actually
quiet exciting. Well the more you grow up, the more you see.
really don´t like to cross borders. It is also something different
going through a border checkpoint on a airport or crossing by land.
land means you will cross the same way like smugglers. Crossing in a
old and big caravan makes yourself even more suspicions. Therefore we
had a lot of police in our car, checking for drugs, weapons and
humans. Just depending which direction you go.
