    Exclamation The wind, bike & heart; Tour de Mushtarka Balochistan!

    Its all about the freedom of life on the road, a personal adventure that leads a biker to the Balochistan province of Pakistan. Balochistan is Balochistan and words can't describe its beauty, you need to have a particular taste to feel it. Its not a cup of tea, its Coffee. This adventure started with passion, hope, fear of unseen and ended giving experiences & memories of good times to be recalled. It also helped me rediscover myself and taught me lessons to be remembered.
    Some Statistics:
    Days Spent:7
    Distance Travelled: 2017 kms

    This summers I have revisited some areas of Balochistan on bike. The map in link below would give you some idea.

    Balochistan is a pure driving pleasure. Its vast landscape resembles with Mexico which you wouldn't find anywhere else in Southeast Asia. This video song glimpse to the enchanting beauty of Balochistan, although its picturised along the coastal highway.

    It was hot out there. Little relaxation break under the shade of a tree on the way.

    Between ShaikhWahan and Iqbalabad a big bird(crow shape of but larger than it), sitting on roadside suddenly flied and collided with side of my bike when I approached near to it breaking my bike's front number plate and side reflector. I saw it colliding with the bike and falling back on the road. My pant got also stains of its blood, which I washed later in a roadside trucking area. Stopped at Chowk Bahadur for lunch. It was almost 4PM.

    After 45 min lunch break stop at Chowk Bahadurpur Daewoo terminal, resumed my journey towards Sukkur. I was riding at a speed of 80-90km/hr. Stopped somewhere between Pano Aqil and Sukkur at a filling station to use wash room and have some drinks from tuck shop.

    Mistakenly went to InterPak hotel
    I asked reception guy about single room and he said yes available. I asked about charges and he said 6k.
    Then checked some other hotels at Birrage road and workshop road and found one within my budget with adequate facilities. Did check In.

    My plane was to after getting the hotel, go to KFC sukkur for dinner . But went against it because I was feeling tired and sleepy. I ordered dinner in the room and after eating the dinner retired on the bed. That day I had covered almost 450kms in 8:30 hrs which was a reasonable amount of journey in a day considering my small displacement bike. Next day proposed jouney would have to be less interms of kms but it would be thrilling.
    End Day-1.
