Holpriger Start in Kirgistan

Die letzten Tage in Tadschikistan war uns das Wetter nicht wohl gesonnen, Regen, Schnee und Kälte ließen uns ein paar Tage früher als geplant nach Kirgistan (oder Kirgisien oder Kirgisistan) aufbrechen. Wir hofften auf um die 2.000 Meter Höhe, auf angenehmere...
This is an Adventure not a Holiday

This is an Adventure not a Holiday

We woke to a sunny day. The idea today is to ride into Ushguli and then tomorrow continue on the dirt road past there in a loop  and we plan to get to the capital Tbilisi the day after. We were a bit concerned about the amount of rain and the condition of the “road”...
So… Suriname!

So… Suriname!

Suriname, Suriname… where exactly is that? Near Vietnam? Nope. Next door to Ghana? Errr, no. It’s on the north coast of South America, above Brazil, snuggled comfortably between French Guiana and Guyana. It’s in the northern Amazon basin, so it’s hot, humid and – at...
Georgia on My Mind.

Georgia on My Mind.

We have a short day planned today with just 2o6 km to Batumi Georgia. This gives us lots of time since there is the border to deal with and a 1 hour time change. The ride was pretty uneventful. We did stop for a quick power wash after the rain and mountain...
Ankara and East.

Ankara and East.

We set off early today for the 464 km ride to Ankara. We started on the main E 80 toll road, but then headed to the D140, which basically cut cross country south east. The ride is up and down several passes.… Read the...

There’s a Reason It’s the #1 Aquarium!

It’s been a while since we posted a blog, but we’ve been waiting for me to learn to walk.  My arches have fallen, and I’ve been on my rear or in CAM walking boots most of this time.  My doctor sent me to get custom orthotics made, and I...

Ireland

Ireland

Barely got my breath back from the return from Nepal and we were off to Ireland for the “Norton” meet at the Beara peninsula in the deep South West. I opted for the T3 in the hope of hassle free riding, that proved half right! Alex and I left on Wednesday,...

Pamir – das Dach der Welt

Pamir, das klingt nach Ferne, nach Superlativen, die zweithöchste befestigte Straße der Welt. Pamir das klingt nach Offroad Abenteuer und vielen hohen Pässen. Im Vorfeld die bange Frage: kommen wir mit der Höhe klar, immerhin liegt ein Großteil des Pamir auf 3.000 bis...

Tadschikistan die Erste – Fan Gebirge

Rückblende Usbekistan Die Ausreise aus Usbekistan gestaltete sich relativ problemlos. Die Passkontrolle würdigte unsere Registrierungszettel kaum. In Usbekistan muss sich jeder Tourist, der sich länger als drei Tage in einem Oblast / Bezirk aufhält registrieren...
Chitwan to Tansen then Pokhara

Chitwan to Tansen then Pokhara

We left Chitwan feeling a bit rough, the delights of Nepalese cooking aren’t going well with us at the moment, the first 50 or so Km’s were busy congested and polluted then it got greener and straighter which although boring made me feel like we were...
Kathmandu o Chitwan National park

Kathmandu o Chitwan National park

Finally we got our bikes, the whole group is here now and yesterday (Monday) we left Khathmandu at 7am, not early enough though to escape the madness. Khathmandu is a very busy and congested city with poor road infrastructure, unfortunately my go pro battery died so I...
