  4. Tolles Video. By the way, die Postkarte ist gestern angekommen. Wirklich klasse gemalt und danke für die netten Grußworte!! 🙂

  5. Schönes Video, wie immer. Für Eure Weiterreise wäre es vielleicht eine Überlegung wert, auf eine aktuelle GoPro oder andere aktuelle Actioncams zu wechseln: Nachdem ich in den letzten Wochen auf Youtube immer wieder gesehen habe, wie toll die automatisch stabilisierten Videos aussehen, fällt mir persönlich stark das Wackeln der Bilder auf. Ist sicherlich für Euch nicht schlimm, aber vielleicht denkt Ihr in ein paar Jahren anders – schließlich macht man so eine Reise nur ein Mal. Weiterhin Euch alles Gute, viel Freude, Sonne und nette Menschen!

  6. Groovy people. Next week I'm heading off on a tour thru Africa (and maybe further), watching your videos has helped in building up the courage to do it.

  11. The Osh Basaar looks great! How are you able to communicate what you want and know how much it costs? Ogla must speak 90 languages. Great video as always. Wishing you safe travels.

  12. Guys, you blow my mind…:-)….have you seen the London to Miami ride (through Kirgistan and China) on the William Frazer channel? – also epic….:-)

  13. А почему не по-русски с русским говорили? Один из вас ведь русский.

  14. How much route planning did you do before hand and what type of phone apps did you use for navigating? Did u have any printed maps? Did you see any ticks/Zecken?

  15. I couldn't find any information about that Bishkek appartement here or on your blog. Would you please tell me or publish on your blog, which appartement exactly that was? Thanks!
