A new adventure is planned for May 2013!

We'll start from Malatya, where i stopped in 2010, and plan to cross northern Iran by June, continuing through Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan to the cooler mountains of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

We hope to arrive in Kashgar in western China in September/October, from where we plan to turn south towards Pakistan, cycling across the Karakoram Highway and the literal and geographic high point of this etappe, the Khunjerab Pass at 4700m. If we make it that far, there's a good chance we'll continue to India, where we'll stay a while and see where the roads lead us.

We you may wonder? After having cycled alone for 4000km from the Danube to the Euphrat in 2010, this time my significant other Daniela is coming along on the trip! This means twice the fun for us - compared to 2010 where she chose to stay back in Vienna and both of us didn't have that much fun at times.
