|Dead Sea Tour
tour started March 2017, submitted 7 March 2018
A sudden decision to fulfill a long lasting dream
Escape from freezing Austrian Winter and drift like a thrift wood in waters of dead Sea. I found an little private room at Gil's Rooms at Newe Zohar. Located at the Southern end of the Dead Sea. You may find this place on Google maps. Samy, the owner has been very cooperative and helpful. He organized a shuttle from Tel Aviv Ben Gurion airport to Newe Zohar and back. Of course, there is a bicycle needed.
I have taken my Brompton folding bike with me. Without, I would have been lost. Roads are good and not always flat. The landscape is beautiful. Riding in this depression of about 400 meters below Adriatic Sea level makes just fun. The area of Newe Zohar is save. Too far away from typical political quarrels in this part of the world. The Eastern side of Dead Sea is Jordan. The do the same: offering a high number of resort hotels to tourists. This ensures piece. All the hotel are occupied by Russian tourists. Russian language is the second language in that area. It always helped to start talks with "strastwuitje". My room has been somehow in the middle of nowhere.
You should know, that Newe Zohar does not have a restaurant or a market. This is a place to relax. Made for Individualists like me. I am not unhappy as I was forced to pedal at least five kilometers in order to get a breakfast and shop daily needs. The hotel Lot coupon ensures an free entrance to the pool and beach.

I left home in September 2004. I was supposed to cycle to Tibet in 7-8 months. Until now, I never reached Tibet and I'm still on the road. A cold winter in Turkey make me change my itinery and then my travel's philosophy. I decided that the performance was not that important but the road itself brings me everything. In almost a total of 2 years where I worked as a safari tour guide in Namibia, I had enough money to continue and live the dream further and further. Soon, I will attempt to buy a boat in Amazonia and turn it into a bicyle-boat to cross the Amazonas on its bigest highways: the rivers! This tour is still in process and I will keep it updated on my website. nature, dirt roads, cultures and wildlife lover..

Early in the morning, when assembling the bike I couldn't tighten the right pedal all the way into the crank. I took a closer look and discovered few scraps of aluminum in the crank thread. Oh my God! I ruined the crank! It seemed the tour was over before it begun.
