Kerman – Bam - Zahedan
 

Riding through sandstorms in the Eastern part of Iran to reach our last city Zahedan. Driving through the earthquake devastated city of Bam. 
After the demanding day yesterday we decided to leave very early and try to cover as much from the way to Zahedan as possible. Zahedan will be our last city to stay in Iran and we plan to cross over to Pakistan tomorrow morning.

Even thought we left Kerman early, about 7 in the morning about an hour later the temperature was already in the super uncomfortably hot zone again. We planned to do a pit stop and possibly a siesta between 10 am and 2 pm in the afternoon but we started to realize that it is impossible as nothing really on the way. By 9 am the wind started to blow and the 50+ degree Celsius, dry wind gusts with millions of sand grain became our biggest problem. Those mean sand grains always found a spot to hit our skin, no matter how covered up, somehow there was a little gap here and there, between the sleeve of the jacket and the gloves or on the tip of our nose or where the goggles met the face mask.

Another massive and could have been costly mistake was our water supplies. As we rushed out from Kerman all we had left is the leftover water from yesterday. We thought that Kerman must have a big service station in the end of the city as usually the case but we didn’t find any. At some point we had to stop in the middle of nowhere and find shelter from the strong sand storm next to the bike. At least we had some tomatoes which we could munch on.

The planned lunch stop at Bam didn’t go too well either but at least we found some snacks and water. Bam is a small town which is famous for the earthquake happened here in 2003. Signs of the earthquake which left almost 30,000 people dead are still visible with lots of ruins around and the construction site all over the surrounding area. Knowing what happened here and seen all the devastation, even after one and a half year later made us very sad.

After leaving Bam we still had more than half of the way to cover in the periodically arriving sand storms but we managed to drive more or less without any issues.

As we are approaching Pakistan the landscape really started to be hostile. Less and less villages almost zero vegetation or any sorts of life in fact. Iran was very colorful and friendly up until Naein but after that it started to be browner and hotter.

After arriving to Zahedan we managed to find accommodation fairly quickly which we were happy about as many people came to ask money and the situation was similar to the one last night in Kerman, with the crowd following us. Next to our hostel we found an internet café so we managed to chat with Mom which we haven’t done in the past good few days.

I only can hope that we won’t have any issues at the border tomorrow.

I have never heard about this area before but it was good to know about that these kinds of area do exist in our country. It is always very good to discover the new places around us.

This surely is an epic tour in the sense of moving in this route which doesn’t make any sense. Everybody has their own thing in their mind which makes them do such things that satisfies them.

It seems like your experience in Iran was quite hassle compare to the others places you've been before. Iran is terribly a hot country! You can see people sweating all the time because of its weather. That became a usual view for the locals there. Aside from that, there's a scarcity in water. You can just imagine how inconvenient it is to spend your life in this place. But I'm still hoping that you've learned something from your trip.

    The Riders:

    Aurel Maracsko and his son Aurel Maracsko jr. 

    We are a father and son duo who loves riding motorcycles. Aurel Jr. or Tom is an enthusiast enduro rider and Aurel Sr. is more of the adventure rider. 

    Me, a combination of Tom Sawyer and the Little Prince, adventurer, dreamer and a crazily enthusiast rider. Jules Verne was the ultimate hero of my childhood, his foresight's of the future and exotic adventures fascinated me to a level which still influences me today. I believe the constant thirst for exploration and the need for learning is the key engine for every adult just as for every child.
