The Caspian Sea

Managed to catch a ferry to Aktau, Kazakhstan, along with 2 German and 1 Spanish bikers, a French couple travelling round the world in a Land Rover and a British couple cycling to Australia.
The crossing is meant to take 18 hours but because of strong winds it ended up taking 48. The ordeal wasn't over once we reached Aktau - another 8 hours to get through customs.
