|We will start
in Alaska beginning of August and ride down to Ushuaia, Argentina,
where we plan to be for Christmas 2000. After that, it's back
up to Buenos Aires from where we will fly the bikes and ourselves
to either Ivory Coast or Ghana. Then through Burkina Faso, Mali,
Mauritania and Western Sahara to Morocco and over to Spain. At
the beginning of the trip, we planned to fly to New Zealand for
one month at that point, but we decided to extend our time in
Africa and leave New Zealand for next time.... Once back in Europe,
we will move on towards Turkey, Iran, (or Georgia and Azerbaijan),
then through Central Asia to Siberia, Russia, Finland, Norway
and back down to Luxembourg.
Total distance to be covered amounts to approximately 60.000 km.Changes
to that route will probably be necessary but it's fun to aim high.
Of course, there's the disadvantage of not being able to stay
for longer periods in places we like, but then again, this trip
was meant to be a constant voyage. The moment we get tired of
permanently moving, well, we'll change plans. Fact is, the current
scope of the trip is a consequence of too much research. We would
research Russia and come upon descriptions of the mountains of
Kyrgyzhstan, hmmm, sounds great, maybe we could swing by there
as well...... It's hard to stop once you've started. Which exit
for the moon, please?
