About

In September 2012 we fulfilled our dreams and left our corporate jobs to cycle the world. 20 months and 26,000 km later we had discovered 21 countries on three continents and ended our epic journey in beautiful New Zealand. More on this trip can be found at http://myfirstblogeverforcyclists.wordpress.com.

After catching up with family and friends, Baerbel working as a communications freelancer and Johan developing a passion for classic road bikes, we decided to embark on another cycling trip as of August 2015, this time to discover the old silk road, starting in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and cycling through Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, United Arab Emirates and Oman.

Baerbel (47), a sportswoman with a special love for pushbike touring. She left her corporate communications job to travel the world by bike together with her partner Johan. She is passionate about all endurance sports, preferably cycling and running, loves cooking and even more so eating. She is always worried about not having enough food or water while touring. Main responsibilities during the trip are cooking, food shopping and updating the blog.
