Tosh´s Tour through the Desert

"unbelievable", this is what all my friends said when they told me about Palmyra, some ancient ruins in the middle of the desert and Craq de Chevaliers, the largest crusader castle in the world, both located in Syria. It was quite clear to me that i had to go there one day.

So i left one early morning beginning of May ´96 with my old Volvo truck heading to Haifa/Israel. "Rimini, you won´t get any further", my friends, knowing about the condition of the Volvo, were extremly optimistic. But after a week, spending most of the time on ferry boats, i arrived in Haifa with only one seal leaking.
