Lake Geneva is great and so is Basle. It's what I love about being Swiss Bangladeshi.

Re: Albanian of the week
Bloody Hell! I have something in common with Gavros! I hate Switzerland with a vengeance after being ripped off there by police for speeding. I got fined £425 for doing 69kph in a 50kph area in the late 90's when £425 was worth a lot more!

I swore I would have nothing to do with Switzerland again. And then the idiot poster known as Swiss confirms my decision to avoid anything to do with SWITZERLAND!!!!!

Re: Albanian of the week
I didn't know that Sid. sounds perfectly reasonable in that case. Palin loved it there, guess he was saying that to put people off.

mind you a 'poor Switzerland' hardly sound spoke fun. I absolutely detest Switzerland.

Re: Albanian of the week
I'm not an expert on the Stans, I don't think three weeks out there in 2009 gives me any great insight but the capital cities were quite western/Russian whereas out in the country it was very poor and isolated. A lot of the countryside was pretty deserted - millions work in Russia - their version of our underclass

Gorno Badakhstan (eastern Tajiikistan) was my favourite though, that was properly off the map and needed a special permit to visit, whereas the capital Dushanbe now has direct flights from Europe so hardly remote.

.....and Bhutan, which charges £1000 tax to visit and only allows a few hundred people per year.

I went to Bhutan in 2011, it charged $200 a day but that included your hotel, all meals, car, driver and guide. On that basis it was actually pretty good value. The flight from Calcutta was a bit pricey but overall a very easy trip. Bhutan is a bizarre mix of Switzerland and Tibet - very civilized and quiet but also very poor and remote. My guide was lovely and we are still friends on Facebook

Re: Albanian of the week
everywhere opening up mim. 20 years ago going to Thailand was still a bit out there. conman as Costa brava was now.

places still proper off the beaten track I guess would be some islands of Indonesia, Papua New guinea and Bhutan, which charges £1000 tax to visit and only allows a few hundred people per year.

Re: Albanian of the week

Couple of years ago Sting did a tour of the Stans and took 6 trucks with him to carry all his kit about.

Sadly I didn’t get the gig.

There is a Dutch co called Rynart that takes trucks to some far flung places (including Afghanistan) but they only employ Turkish drivers .

I ask the owner once a month or so for a job , one day he will say yes.

Re: Albanian of the week
Dunno if that's the case any more re the Stans. From what you read they're "opening up" a lot. Almaty is meant to be full of nightlife for example

Re: Albanian of the week
always considered the stans to be the final frontier in terms of travelling.

I'd fucking love to see Samarkand. would also love to see Kaffirstan (part of Pakistan but until relatively recently fairly independent with own religions and strangely white and blonde haired, it was believed because they were descendants of the army of Alexander the great. immortalised in the film The Man Who Would Be King(. superb.

Fella i knew drove to Mongolia from Manchester through all the 'stans (except Pakistan and Afghanistan) last year.

How many of them have you done and which was your favourite?

FFS!

Re: Albanian of the week
Fair play to you Sid - I wanted to go to Melnik in South-Western Bulgaria, because it's supposed to be very picturesque and to have the best wine in the country.

Because there seemed to be no way to book a room without actually going there and there seemed to be a stretch on the route from Sofia which only had one bus a week, I gave up.

Re: Albanian of the week
How does one end up on a situation where you need to go from tajikistan to kazakhstan by taxi and/or other means?

As an example. If you want to go from Khorog to Murghab there are no buses or any other regular transport options. Instead - go to the market in Murghab, show random market traders a handwritten sign which says "I want to go to Murghab" in Russian. One of them sends for his daughter who speaks English, she translates (once you have confirmed you don't want to get married to her or any of her sisters or anyone else's daughter) and manages to find one guy who is travelling there the next day to deliver some supplies (possibly heroin but he assured me that he was not a drug trafficker).

The next day you set out on a 12 hour trip across what looks like the surface of the moon (only with more snow). When you arrive again ask at the market for somewhere to sleep, try and deal with the altitude sickness (Murghab is about 12,000 feet up), end up staying in someone's spare room before negotiating a lift onwards with a guy who admits that he does transport heroin but not this week (how else could he afford a shiny new 4x4?)

Or you could just fly from Heathrow direct to Almaty and check in to a five star hotel.

King Zog smoked 200 cigarettes a day and was proclaimed the heaviest smoker in the world in 1929.

And back then they were proper fags. Assuming you're awake for 16 hours a day, that's 12.5 fags an hour!

Fair play.
