Kel-Suu See – extrem abgelegen

Chinese Border Permit Rein zufällig fiel mir ein Foto in die Hände, auf dem ein idyllischer Bergsee im Tain-Shan Gebirge, eingerahmt von Felsen, abgebildet war. Den wollte ich persönlich sehen und fing an zu recherchieren. In keinem unserer Reiseführer wurde der...
And the bee goes buzz: Indonesia

And the bee goes buzz: Indonesia

A light in our hotel room started making a funny noise. Ten o’clock at night and the recessed light in the high ceiling began ticking and buzzing with the noise intensifying as the minutes passed, a huge moth perhaps attracted to the light bulb. Awhile later, a couple...
Colombia: vuelta al Eje Cafetero

Colombia: vuelta al Eje Cafetero

Hace ya casi dos meses que nos despedimos de Medellín para adentrarnos en tierra cafetera, una de nuestras áreas preferidas de Colombia. Dimos tantas vueltas entre el Quindío y el Valle del Cauca que pareciera no tener sentido, pero es parte de la no planificación que...

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...

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...
