Mount Ararat appeared out of nowhere as we drove towards the Eastern Turkish city of Van. You could tell it was enormous. We were still so far away, yet it was already visible and its snow-capped peak towered above anything around it.
Just as I started to get comfortable in Turkey I woke up one day and realised - I am so limited by having the little Fiat Panda as my vehicle here. Then I thought about my Russian UAZ car, which is still being prepared. Actually, I'm waiting for it to be prepared and it likely won't happen until November.
