On June 24, we arrive in Moscow very early in the morning. We slowly discover the city by bike; a city that is just waking up. The opportunity to see the famous Red Square at 7am, empty of its usual flow of tourists: great!
Part 2/2: We cut the article in half to make it easier to read. To read the beginning, it's here!
From Xi’an to Beijing we discover another China. Urban China, the China of the North so different from that of the South. But it's also a 15-day reception by great people.
Thanks to Jerem's mini fishing box of the patches released, we were able to probe the fauna of a Sichuan river where we were able to catch ... 6 small fish!
On video please! It's 20 to 30 seconds.
That's it, it's been a month that we are in China and 7 months of travel in all. Small return on this last month ...
It must be said, we love good food. Plus we're French… Going Slowly Before leaving for our year on the road I was following Tara and Tyler from the goingslowly.com blog. They are about our age, are Americans, he is a computer scientist and is a good photographer and she loves to cook - which is to say that I was immediately hooked, both for the original ideas in the development of the website, as for my fat appetite for good food.
Discover one of the oldest civilizations in the world!
A shattering entry! Rhaa the happiness of border posts! Our first contact with Laos was a thousand miles from what we experienced afterwards. Fortunately !!
Already 5 months! Time flies faster and faster we would say!
A good Thai barbeuc and grilled mushrooms, or else boiled in the soup!
On est de gros gourmands, pas trop dur de réaliser ce défi ! Manger des pâtisseries Les meilleures Baklavas d’Istanbul ! Des Kebabs Et des glaces ! Bon, il faisait entre 7 et 10 degrés la journée, alors celui là on a eu plus de mal à s’y mettre… Mais finalement, elle était bonne cette glace !
Here we go again ! On December 14, we left Bangkok: after almost three weeks of break, we are happy to be back on the road. We head south on big roads for the first two days, it's not always very funny ... but the beach is waiting for us in a short time.
Well we're completely crazy, I'm still sweating (we crossed the Cambodian border with it) but WE DID IT! This magnificent counterfeit Oreo, which also has the same taste (good quality), almost cost us dearly but I am proud to have dared to cross the border with it. It was enough to dare.
It lives, it moves, it's amazing and exotic! A good start with Asia! From December 6 to 14, we were greeted in the beautiful old Thai-style room, owned by Supaporn, the principal of Supawan School, in the west of the city. We were so good that we did a little bit of back-up. It was a perfect place to get used to the country.
The anecdotes follow each other and are not alike, but for having tested it: Turkish hospitality is remarkable whatever the level of society! Students, rich, poor, practicing Muslims or not, all welcome us without worries!
Well, basically, we arrive at the Albanian border not necessarily motivated for this country ... People in Montenegro told us that they are crazy about flying and that we should be wary of them ...
A little over a year ago, we were cycling on a Roman road, Via Claudia Augusta, and Thomas proposed to me. For our honeymoon start, we are once again on an old Roman road: Via Aurelia.
That's it we left France! But first, we have plenty of other things to tell you because we've been doing well lately.
