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?
