With only 15 days to cycle more than 4.000km through the desert, we have no other choice but to hitchhike. Fortunately here in the steppe of Kazakhstan, it's as easy as taking a bus in London. Just wait for the first truck, wave your hand and it will stop if the driver has the tiniest room for you. And than the fun begins.
From Azerbaijan to Kazakhstan by boat. Crossing the Caspian Sea on a Soviet-era ferry, from Baku to Aktau. Right in the middle of the Kazakh Steppe.
