    What fantastic pictures. As for your English, it is much better than the yanks feeble attempts ( joking boys, joking) that looks like one amazing journey. Thanks for posting.

    Thank you!

    We travelled by ourselves: Sambor only did the transports.
    We actually met with him a few times in Bishkek and in Murgab (where the picture is from) and had a few drinks together:-)

    I saw your beautiful pictures from the balkans: I've been a few times but they made me want to get back there, but our plans for this year are a bit different (Sambor transport still involved) :-)

    Good question about KKH: it's in the top 5 of my "to do" list. I hope sooner than later!

    Hi Marat! How are you? Everything ok?
    Sabrina was with me in this 2013 trip too: she is not in so many pictures because she took a lot of them :-)
    You can spot her in the bike's rearviewmirror while she were shooting them...

    I have at least 5 different ideas for next summer, all in Asia, but I don't know yet which one will win :-)

    And before I need to think about where to go next march :-)
