This couple is cycling around the world for two years!
World Bicycle Tour 32 Countries 2 years on the road Hello! My name is Michel I’m Olga and this is our companion Sheep! And together we are Rausgefahren! Since 2 years we are on the road with our bikes On a Worldbicycletour On May 24, 2016 we started in Hamburg And our adventure started And since then we saw and experienced a lot We started in Hamburg in northern Germany And headed to the west first Over the BeNeLux countries To France and further south To spain and portugal We always wanted to do a bigger trip A big worldtrip But we didn’t know How we can do it And we thought we will need a lot of money And then by coincidence We found out about Bicycletouring We never did a bicycletour, we were complete amateurs So we cycled trough europe first We thought, we know it and it’s not too adventurous And we were surprised how far we can get Then we continued at the mediterranean sea coastline Italy and the balkans To turkey Meanwhile we got routined We were on the road for a couple of months Everything which was new and unknown before We got used to that now And we could dive deeper into the adventure From Turkey we flew to israel Olgas grandma lives in israel And we visited here for a couple of weeks After that we cycled through Israel and Jordan And then flew back to Turkey Then we headed to Georgia and Russia To Olgas Homecountry Now everything became more exciting We left Europe The cultures became more different But the people became friendlier It was exactly how we wanted We could dive into the culture and learn about the people The further we got The more intense it became Russia was a big milestone on our journey Because it’s my homecountry It was nice and exciting On the one hand i know everything, but on the other… Everything was new! Because it was more intense Than just being in my hometown I showed the Russian life to Michel And i also experienced it in a new way From Russia wen went to Kasachstan. Kyrgistan, Pamir in Tadjikistan Uzbekistan and with a ferry to Azerbaidjan In all those countries the people speak Russian Which was very nice So we really could speak with the people It was a bit like being home From Azerbaidjan we went to Iran And after that with the Ferry to UAE And Oman From Oman we flew to Mumbai in India From Mumbai we cycled south To Goa And we are still in Goa And celebrate Our “2 Years on a Worldbicycletour” The three of us 🙂 And we make this video for you! In Iran our anticipation To nice people and great culture Became more than true The iranians are Unbelivable, hospital people Every day on every corner People asked us if we need something We got bags filled up with fruits We got food of all kinds as a present People gave us water out of their cars When we stoped for a short break next to the street We got invited to their homes For Lunch, dinner, sleepovers Sometimes we stayed several days With the families They showed us their cities and the culture And teached it to us It was amazing in Iran An undescribable country The big contrast to that Not big contrast, but a bit… Was Dubai, the UAE Dubai is a modern city We arrived with the ferry It’s very western i would say A dog-eat-dog society, as you may know A big contrast to Iran People were selfish Nobody cared to help other people It’s just about yourself, about your wealth About your possesions Wealth… Show your wealth to others… Show up and yeah… It’s very different… A trip like this obviously changes you And for me it was a turn away from consumption To an easier lifestyle in our tent On the road Cooking on a camping stove And to be very happy if you can get a shower This is our honeymoon In the last two years we were 24hours a day together And it’s very nice We enjoy it And we got to know each other from a new side But we found out That we always have each other And we always can help each other And that we can Trust each other And together we can do everything And that our adventure will always continue Of course We also had some arguments on our trip Not just once… But after that we always came together again And noticed That it’s stupid to have a fight Because, as Olga just said Together we can achieve everything If we hold together we can do everything What we want Whatever we want to do We can do it together It’s an amazing partnership I don’t know what to say It’s wonderful To make a journey like this with your beloved To enjoy it together We cycled almost 30.000km We cycled over Rough and smooth, sand Deserts Mountains and steppes Hills Up and down, day over day But we always made it And together we achieved it And made the experience Sometimes it’s hard of course Physical and psychological But you get used to it And you find new borders and set new borders We are kind of athletic now I would say With our bikes Which are not too light, Olgas is 50 and mine 60 kg We can cycle over 100km per day with them I think 130km was our max Not too bad what we achieved The world is amazing, just enjoy it! You need so few, to be happy! We will now stay a bit in india We will see the neighbours Nepal and Bangladesh And then we’ll head to SE Asia Australia and south America It will probably take another two years If we make it how we planned it And we are looking forward To the next years New countries, new experiences New people, new cultures, new food If you don’t want to miss this, we will keep uploading videos to YouTube!
