Seht ihr einen Unterschied?
😅 Juan sprach uns am Venice Beach an und wollte unsere Geschichte hören. Einige Stunden später besuchten wir ihn in seinem Laden #industryforallnations . Da erfuhren wir alles über die nachhaltigen Produkte und deren Herstellungsprozessen. Neu eingekleidet und etwas verlegen und sprachlos verabschiedeten wir uns von Juan! Vielen vielen herzlichen Dank für deine Unterstützung unseres Abenteuers, Juan! .
Do you see a difference? 😅 Juan approached us on Venice Beach and wanted to hear our story. Several hours later we visited him in his shop #industryforallnations . We learned everything about the sustainable products and their manufacturing processes. Newly dressed and a little embarrassed and speechless, we said goodbye to Juan! Thank you very much, Juan, for your generous support of our adventure! .
2 months ago we had a lovely trip through the Scottish highlands! It was such a blast :) It still brings me a smile from ear to ear when I look back at the great photos @erwinsikkens_com made of our trip.
Have a great weekend, And stay curious!

Egan is ready to go!
Lots of fun in choosing frame, parts, bags and a homemade spray.bike painting to give this bicycle a flashy oldy style without omitting most fitting specs for the various conditions expected between Europe and South America.
So we are in Asia now! 💪 But actually there hasn't any difference to the European part of Turkey yet: people are still great, there is a lot of tea to drink and much honking on the road.
We spent a great evening in Balıkesir at our host Yiğit's @seozza45 and his wife's home and learned how to eat sunflower seeds without accidents.
We are on the way to the Mediterranean Sea again and hope to arrive there in some days. It's less than 1.000 km till Belek where we will wait for @hansarostock 📍 Currently in Soma, Turkey

Travel is one of the greatest educations a person can receive; it is a lesson on life and how it is lived around the world. In Chris’s case, he and the rest of the #tdanorthamericanepic have enrolled in Mexico 101, honing skills in history, language, geography, cuisine & culture. And if they get good marks, we might let them
graduate onto courses like Guatemala, Costa Rica & Panama!

Glad that Cappadocia really was worth all the effort it took to get there 🙃🤟🙃
Day 20 - Tamri to Taghazout
One last night camping at the beach for our fabulous trio, a November swim in the Atlantic Ocean. I enjoyed it so much that I took no photos, and just lived the moment and the luxury of our million star hotel.
On the next day I burned my hand trying to carry hot coffee and porridge at the same time (if you know me, you know this was not a wise move) And out of the endless bag of wonders that are the panniers of his bike, Diego pulled a stalk of Aloe that saved my skin.
We said goodbye to Diego, this rare gem of a person, who helped me be a better cyclist and a better traveler.
And like good Portuguese, @boleiasdamarta and I said goodbye over an espresso. And then we met @maryrrodo and @inesdantasramalho , the first Portuguese we had seen in Morocco. Sitting. Right. Next. To us.
Não há fone que não dê em fartura. (Beijinhos grandes, meninas!)

BREAKING NEWS: No, Sara isn't pregnant.
Yesterday we decided to spend the next three weeks in Chiang Mai, Thailand, riding carbon bikes on tarmac and staying in a hotel. Why? Because we can and because it's what we want to do right now. And as a side effect it might give us time to get our feed here a little more up to date. Maybe.
Because on here we're still stuck somewhere in Nepal. Actually at the time @stutzueli joined us and we trekked to the Annapurna Base Camp. It was right at the end of the rainy season and the first two days led us through lush and humid jungle up and down endless stairs and most of the time it didn't felt like we were trekking towards some of the highest peaks on earth. It was on the second morning when we first saw a snow covered peak for a few minutes when we started realizing what would expect us at the Base Camp.
Great see red fox featured in a @positivenewsuk article about green festival travel yesterday. Particularly like their use of the words "two wheeled convoys". We like this. Check out positive.news/environment for the full article 📰
First day in Azerbaijan. Lankaran, 40 Kms from Iran border.
Stuff would be thrown at you on the first day in a country which would give you a flavour of the country. You then know what to expect for the rest of your journey.
After 50 dry days in Iran, I picked up my Beluga and settled down in the tent in a park in Lankaran. Two drinks down, I had to step out to the knocks of two 6.5 feet tall policemen. Thinking that having Beluga in a public park would put me in trouble, I sprayed my tent with the MOOV I had, to give it a 'hospital' smell. To my surprise, these chaps were worried about my safety and wanted me to move to place inisde their patrol limits. They helped me move my stuff to the new area, took my bikes with them to their station for saftey and returned back by morning, while I had my time with Beluga.
Who said one cannot drive again after an accident or so after painful wounds that took resistance, patience and time to heal.
I never was a lazy one when it comes to driving. I always had this passion to drive, to accelerate, to change gears. Part of my passion came from my driving buddy - my brother(@_p.gautam ) who always looked forward to change gears and travel. To places he liked and to the places to find out which he have no idea about.
My life of accelerating and changing that amazing gears to move forward started with my slpender. It was the beginning of my journey to learn more, to handle more and wear more patience.
I learned to honor to drive. I had the privilege to drive splender then glamour. Because it has been with my brother whom I respect immensely in this aspect. It's an complete honor to have the same thing he had.
I hope I will have that honor to touch and embrace his bullet then drive in future.
One of the few factors that I love about driving is my heart beats accordingly with the pace of my baby vehicle. The fear and passion courses through my veins as my hand settles on the handle.
This part dedicates to the part of me that loves driving bike. It gives me confidence to be myself and be different, even it's for a little bit.
And as one of my rider buddy said " Driving is an art. Its the form of passion itself. " Well, I totally agree man.

We made it to La Paz, Baja California Sur. As our ferry to the mainland only leaves in a couple of days, we decided to do a tour to see the whalesharks. They come very close to the shore in this place thanks to the special conditions of La Paz Bay. We saw many of them, juveniles of 4-7 metres. When we were in the water, we sometimes had 3 animals swimming and feeding around us. Absolutely amazing!! Luckily, some came close to the boat as well, so we could take pictures 😉
As we go west the landscape becomes more and more deserty and the roads ever more sandy. And more corrugated. Until you have ridden a curragated sandy road on a fully loaded bike you have not lived... Joking - an experience I could do without, but the landscape is breathtaking!
It is incredibly hot during the day, about 40° - 45° starting at about 12:00. We get up at 6:00 (when it gets light and we can pack up the tent) and try to hit the road at around 6:30. Breakfast/lunch (brunch sounds too glamorous for toast, jam and canned meat) is at 10 - 11. Sometimes we even take a nap... And then we ride for 2 more hours or so until we find a nice campsite or Wildcamping spot.
As we approach the end of our little tour through the Sichuan part of the Tibetan Plateau, we started to reflect on all the things we loved about this amazingly diverse region...
Golden grasslands full of rectangular nomad tents instead of yurts, and hundreds and hundreds of yaks.
Such beautifully decorated houses, and super colourful traditional clothes for women and funny extra long sleeved jackets for the men.
Stunning snow covered mountains, crazy crazy gorges and valleys, with colourful prayer flags fluttering in every corner.
Curious smiling people, always ready to give us a cheeky hello and a thumbs up.
Maze like temples, rows of prayer wheels and stupas big and small!
The photos are only a small sample of this... We had an amazing time...
Namibia greeted us with scorching hot weather, strong winds and loooong long lonly roads. The population density is just 3 p/km2 (compared to 233 p/km2 in Germany). The stretches between villages are long and often devoid of water. We often rely on the kindness and hospitality of the local farmers for water and sometimes shelter. We asked the van Wyk Family for some water and ended up staying with them for 2 days. The hospitality was overwhelming and seeing the 5 Hektar cattle Farm was stunning!
Been waiting at the port in Kuryk for a few days, the weather has cleared up and I’m told that the boat will be leaving tonight! Nobody seems to know how long it’ll take to arrive in Baku, I’m guessing 2-3 days. There’s nothing here at the port so I made the 50km round trip in -8 degrees to the nearest shop today to stock up on snacks for the crossing, ready to go, see you soon Azerbaijan!
End of the crossing Bogota, Cali / Nov 9
32 km from Palmira to Cali
I slept very well last night, I felt that I rest, I don't know if it's because I felt at home or what, but I slept deeply. My Aunt last night filled me with love 🤗, she screamed at me from her room ... I love you !!! I want to tell you that my aunt is a very brave woman, and to admire! On the days of giving birth to her second daughter, she suffered a postpartum enclance, the tension was increased to the extent that the left hemisphere was affected, causing bleeding, so she was surgically intervened, leaving physical damage in The entire right side of the body was left with mental aphasias and memory loss.
He had to live with physical and language therapies for several years, returning to school to re-study everything from mathematics and Spanish since he did not recognize numbers, letters, or colors.
Because of mental aphasia linguistically, it is impossible to describe a specific situation or ask for something by its own name, many years have passed since then, and she never gave up, has always been in a positive attitude, could barely defend herself, sought to be useful in whatever it was just to not be a burden to anyone! I admire her too much, she is a warrior who always inspires me when I see her 🥰. My mother was happy with the news that I was close, she asked me not to arrive so early to give her time to make a delicious tail steak that she had promised me 🤗. I want to thank @diegomonsalve2112 and @pintorasirius who during the trip were very aware of us making a call every so often to see how we were, what a beautiful detail ❤️. @diegomonsalve2112 wanted to do the last kilometers with us so we met on the route and shared that last stretch together!
And how you see, we are not the only protagonists of this adventure, every day they intervene and intervene in the lives of many, and each person has a story 😉 ... WELCOME TO CALI! ... says the huge entrance sign.
In total we ride 415 kms
The complete tour was 550kms.

You would be right in thinking that one of our greatest risks on this trip are other road users. With a 3 and a 5 year old on the back of the bikes we have adopted a very defensive way of riding. Having the kids on the bikes has made it a much safer ride for us for a number of reasons - one of them being they have excellent eye sight. Coupled with some very tuned in ears and our side mirrors, most traffic we are well aware of before it reaches us... depending on the wind! This section, Newman to Wiluna, on the Great Northern Highway has had oodles of trucks, road trains and some very large escorted mining machinery. These vehicles obviously aren’t easily manoeuvrable. So we pull over, often! Coming up to crests, corners, when vehicles are coming from both directions. At the end of the day, yes it is a lot of stopping and starting, nipping off on a soft shoulder (occasionally going over side ways 🤣), and losing our momentum- but this is how we manage this risk. We’ve been on this road a couple of days now and it feels like a fair few of these big vehicles know we’re here - I’m guessing there’s a fair bit of radio chatter 😉 so thanks heaps for the waves, toots, wide berths where possible and not too much foul language over the air waves 🤐 Given the hive of activity out here it would be fair to say the #withouttrucksaustraliastops 🤔 Also, anyone missing a sign?

𝙰𝚍 / 𝚆𝚎𝚛𝚋𝚞𝚗𝚐 • We always think about it three times whether we visit at a sightseeing place that costs a certain entrance. 🤔 After camping in front of the fences of the tombs of Naqsh-e Rostam, we really wanted to go and look at them straight in the morning. But then we decided against it, because you could see everything already from the outside. 😉 In addition, we have a really cool gadget for our Moto Z2 Play which is simply attached to the backside: a Hasselblad 10x optical zoom lens. 🔭 In this way you can ever overcome one or the other fence. 😜 (03.02.2019)
