On the Silk Road 2014-2016

For this trip I loosely followed the ancient Silk road. I started with trains from Bremen to Istanbul, then a long train through eastern Turkey to Iran which was fantastic. On through the five ex-soviet stans which are all quite different. After two months in China and stayed six weeks with friends in Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore. After a few days in Bangkok I flew back to Germany for Christmas.
For the second part I returned to Macau to stay with a friend for the summer. I walked a lot including up to all the hills Then back into China and on by ferry to South Korea and another ferry to Japan. Three months in Taiwan, then Thailand, Myanmar and finishing up in Malaysia.
I took over 20000 photos, I picked about 900 and uploaded them to Flickr. Below under each country there is a link for the photos of that country.
