We are Cora and Wolfgang from Mannheim, Germany.
We started travelling the world by bicycle in March 2015 and first travelled down the Danube river to the black sea. With the ferry we crossed the black sea and left the EU. We cycled through Georgia and Armenia and into Iran. In Tehran we got the visa for the next three countries: Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tadjikistan. We crossed the Pamir and entered Kyrgyzstan and later Kazachstan.
I bet you need a map of central asia now. Here you go:
On October 13th we will aim for the Airport in Bishkek, from which we will fly to New Delhi, because unfortunately Afghanistan and Pakistan are not considered safe to travel.
After that not much is planned in detail. The visas for south east asia are easy to get compared to central asia. We will spend some time in south east asia, hopefully making it to Indonesia.
Finally we will leave the asian continent and fly via Japan to central america. From there we will travel all the way to the south of latin america.
That’s the rough idea. We both made good experiences by giving ourselves enough room to dream and change our minds during travelling. For us it is most important to find unique places and authentic people. Obviously we therefore have to leave the touristic routes and maybe miss some world famous buildings and places. However, from former journeys we most vividly remember people we didn’t expect to meet and places we didn’t plan to visit.
