More intense It’s not the future it’s the present That’s a good point It’s maybe not Future Energy How the motto is now Of course it’s in the future, but We have to take actions now, in the present As always, if you liked it, leave a thumps up We see us in the next video! See you!

    de patrick rebmann

  2. So glad you are back. I thought after Russia you got off the road. Love watching your adventures. You are good, fun, cool, hip people!

  3. Hi guys.
    I have to admit, that this episode has been very entertaining to me. And at the same time interesting. It is certainly amazing how the people were so nice to you two. I think you make the effort to make these videos, it's important. I have such a good idea of kazajastan that I will surely include it in my countries to visit in the near future.
    Thank you very much to both of you
    from Madrid

  4. Hej Olga & Michel, wie immer sehr interessant eure Berichte. Die Landschaft und die Leute waren ebenfalls Spitze. Euer Schluss- Statement fand ich auch sehr gut. Freue mich immer auf den Nächsten Teil bzw. Video. Bleibt gesund und seid herzlich gegrüßt – Jens

  5. Super tolles Video. Man fühlt sich an der Hand genomen. Sehr beeindruckendes Land. Mit super netten Menschen.
    Gruß Hans-Bernd

  6. What a friendly place. Kazakhstan was just a place somewhere East before now, but this video has opened my eyes to a fantastic country. Thank you and looking forward to the next

  7. Thank you so much. Just love your enthusiasm .As a cyclist i have done a lot of touring from the Yukon to Mexico from B.C. Canada So i really appreciate your videos!

  8. Hallo Olga,michael, wieder ein Video mit wunderbaren Aufnahmen. 👍 Ja das mit den Supermärkten auf Radreisen ist gar nicht so einfachСпасибо за видео. Удачного пути !

  9. I agree! We need to work together for the sake of our planet!. Love this video! Thanks so much for your time and effort! ✌❤

  10. Wahnsinn….. Kasachstan, Astana . Da bin ich geboren. Und ihr fährt nach Kirgizstan… schon harte Tour. Alles gute und wir freuen uns auf weitere Videos

  11. Erstmal muss ich mal wieder sagen ein schönes Video was ihr da mal wieder gemacht habt. Ich war damals auf der Expo 2000 wo sie in Deutschland war. Da war das nicht so sehr mit Technik versehen. Ich muss euch in gewisser Weiße recht geben das man sich definitiv Gedanken über neue Strom erzeugungen, die für die Umwelt keine Probleme darstellen, machen sollte. Aber andererseits Frag ich mich dann auch ob man überhaupt so viel Technik braucht. Ich hab vor einiger Zeit eine Reportage über Menschen gesehen die Minimalistisch Leben und damit vollkommen Glücklich sind. Klar haben die auch ihr Handy und Laptop und Fernseher und so aber die brauchen keine VR Brillen oder Sprachgesteuerte Sachen oder Elektroautos. Ihr beide führt ja momentan auch ein minimalistisches Leben. Klar ist die Technik von heute eine Weiterentwicklung der Welt. Doch wieviel Entwicklung braucht man wirklich?
    Trotzdem hoffe ich das ihr nach all den Tausenden von Kilometern die ihr schon zurückgelegt habt und all den Ländern die ihr schon durchfahren habt immer noch Spaß an dem ganzen Projekt habt!

  12. Hallo Olga und Hannes, hat wieder richtig Spass gemacht und auch Lust auf dieses Land. Nicht nur wegen des gezapften Bieres. Ach ja und Maps.me benutze ich auch schon lange, weil es offline geht, wenn man die Karten vorher lädt (auf SD-Karte!!). Freu mich auf weitere Abenteuer. Bleibt gesund und liebe Grüße von Fred

  13. Tolle Doku! Willkommene Alternative zum Abendprogramm :-)! Auf der A1 würde ich auch gerne Fahrrad fahren, aber hier in Norddeutschland sind mir definitiv zu viele Autos unterwegs :-)!

  14. Wow. Kasachstan muss der Knaller sein. Kommt definitiv auf meine Liste. Danke für dieses großartige und inspirierende Video. Gute Weiterfahrt!

  15. Klasse ihr zwei! Weiter so! Mein besonderer Respekt vor Olga!
    Sowas macht halt nicht jede Frau mit.
    Молодцы ребята!

  16. Мы тоже хотели бы У вас так ездить и посмотреть вашу страну Но к сожалению к вам без виз посетит нельзя Мы сколько немцев поляков и прибалтов приутили свое время А вы нам не можете дать без виз к сожалению Удачи

  17. wann kommt der Part 2?, Almaaty ist mein Geburtsstadt, bin gespant wie es aussieht nach 23 Jahren, euch noch viel Spaß beim Welt erkunden und viel Glück.

  18. jaaa was soll ich sagen… sehr schönes video..!! und eure Schlußworte sind mehr wie angebracht und ich teile da voll und ganz eure Meinung.
    Weiterhin gute Fahrt..!!

  19. Jetzt habe ich erst den zweiten Teil gesehen . jetzt diesen … das mit der Energieentwicklung stimmt . Ihr inspiriert , bin auch schon längere Touren geradelt mit Wildcampen ..freue mich auf eure Fortsetzung der Reise .

  20. In Oktober und November 2018 war ich 4 Wochen in Россия.Bei der Schwester meines Russischen Freundes zu Gast. Vorher kannte ich schon einige Wörter Russisch. Aber während die Ferien habe ich so gut Russisch gelernt das ich ohne mein Freund als Dolmetscher mit den Leuten plaudern konnte und Einkaufen machte ich alleine. Jetzt habe ich den Absicht die Russische Sprache richtig zu lernen.

  21. That was a great tour and also very interesting , you speak of working together to achieve future free energy when in actual fact the tower designed by the president ( the local lend mark ) is free energy . Free energy has been here and hidden for centuries . all mosque`s, cathedrals some churches and buildings with domed or tall pillars that have copper or brass caps like points produce energy from the eaitha ( atmosphere ). the powers that be simply hide it, it was designed by the Tatariens from the Tatar density . please research it !
    Nicola Tesla tried to bring it back but government stopped him along with many to date, free energy is not chargeable to the public , we shall never be free under rule ! the word government means to govern by rule .
    we simply need to stop voting to be ruled . voting to be taxed . voting to be imprisoned , to have our freedoms monitored . our natural food imprisoned in shops so we have to pay bail to get them . paying the pickers a small fee is one thing but to have it taxed aswell is so wrong . you have encountered this on your travels ….. natures fruits in the countryside /free ….. outback fruits n veg / pennies or cents. Anyway i thoroughly enjoyably watch in ore , your adventures , strength bravery and stamina in envy.

  22. geile maus 🙂 hab noch ein rewel titan bike zu verkaufen wer intresse hat pn an mich grösse 26 zoll xtr schaltung bremsen kettenwerfer naben und laufräder …. der rest xt kurbel kranz und kettenblätter 🙂 federgabel magura

  25. Hallo, es ist ein schönes Video! Nur Astana ist vielleicht die zweite größte Moschee aber die größte Moschee in Astana und in ganz Zentralasien ist Hazrat Sultan seit 2015.

  26. Hey Michel….with all the cycling that you do, I thought you would have a six-pack stomach….but at 6.03…no evidence…maybe you are eating too much of Olga's delicious food?😉
