By | 22nd October, 2016|Categories: Poland|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Crossing the border from Görlitz to Zgorzelec was a big step. Our first task was to find a place to change money because we had no Zloty in our possession yet. Zgorzelec was a good introduction to Poland where we could ride good kilometres but missed a real connection with the country. Our time there consisted mainly [...]

Returning to Europe was on our mind as we sat in the Little Tibetan Guesthouse while looking at the Fishtail of the Annapurna Range.

Cycling Myanmar on the wild side

Bagan, the old kingdom, had given us a special place to discover. We trailed the tracks off the beaten track to far away temples and now and then bumping into groups of tourists.

Our most memorable routes

It is hard to describe all our best roads, [...]

But it was time to go and we were cycling the Gobi, a desert with surprises! Our goals [...]
