WEEKLY PHOTO – Man with sheep on motorbike, Karakum Desert, Turkmenistan

I captured this photo whilst travelling through Turkmenistan as part of an overland adventure starting in Kathmandu, Nepal and travelling back to the UK. In total this trip took 9 months. Turkmenistan is one of the most isolationist countries in the world, second to North Korea. It was difficult to get a visa which allowed just 5 days to travel across the country. In those days I had some surreal experiences of which a sheep being transported on a motorbike was one of the lesser ones.
