Hi there! Come along with us on our adventure.

On the 2nd of February 2014 we embarked on our long desired adventure: Cycling east from Rotterdam with Nepal as destination. As we travel and meet people our horizon will broaden, follow us and see the world with our eyes. Through this website you can explore the places we see, read about the people we meet on the road, learn about the topics we find interesting & inspiring and read more about our thoughts, feelings and what makes us wonder... We travel unsupported and rely on our own funding. Here on twisting spokes we will share our story.

Is this your first time here at Twistingspokes have a look at the getting started guide

The ferry to South Korea

Jinzhou to Incheon 2

We followed the river north and reached the very busy city of Dalian with many big roads. We have really crossed the Asian continent! We took a ferry to Yantai and from there a ferry to Incheon South Korea.
Off the big roads again :)

Jinzhou to Incheon 1
