Might be fun to try to snowkite or ski Mt. Ararat, historical location where Noah’s ark landed, so says the good book.

Maybe also hit up Armenia and check out some untapped opportunities, Lake Sevan and the mountains.

Thanks for the idea, will check it further. Due to some visa and boarder crossing issues I encountered during planning, I decided to skip Armenia. Ararat is a bit too south from my route, but I may change plans last moment.

Officially started the trip, tested sleeping in the car in minus 5 degrees Celsius near Granada, and in Tarifa in around 10 degrees, and surprisingly it was totally fine, and the bed works even though I never made anything with my hands before :D Here is a short video on car and equipment preparation if someone is interested. Going north to the Pyrenees and Alps and a bit of French Mediterranean cost.

A very nice snowkite spot on the way. The name is Col du Puymorens, east of Andorra in the French Pyreenes, immediate access from the parking. 1600 km done, ~18000 more to go :lol:

Some photos from Tbilisi, Georgia (the lake is called Tbilisi sea, nice place, easy access, and amazing city overall, for hedonists)

Also done some snowkiting close to Col du Lautaret some time ago(spot is called Le Chazelet) with amazing guys from Ride Up Mountains, Arnaud Wareck and Simone Borgi. Big thanks to them for accepting me and showing me the spot, and some nice local free thermal baths...
