Far from normal

Magadan, Russia - Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia - Vladivostok, Russia. Since we started this trip in April, we got used to riding our bikes almost everyday. But there's no road leading out of Magadan except the one we came on. So we slightly changed our traveling mode.

From dust till dawn

Irkutsk, Russia - Yakutsk, Russia. Less cities, more nature: the landscape gets lonelier. Still we're far from being isolated on these dusty gravel roads. The Siberian people are very friendly to us. Especially the bikers.

Siberian summer

Altanbulag, Mongolia - Irkutsk, Russia. On our return to Siberia it is hot and sunny. Lake Baikal is huge and enormously beautiful. And cold enough to remind us, where we are.

Gears in heaven

Khyargas Lake, Mongolia - Altanbulag, Mongolia. We continue to cross Mongolia on the middle route. The gravel is great and the sand, well, it's part of the adventure. Mongolia surely is one of the highlights of our trip so far.

Falling for Mongolia

Kosch-Agatsch, Russia - Khyargas Lake, Mongolia. No streets, no fences - in Mongolia you can go wherever you want. It's the perfect place for motorcycling. But nobody said it was easy.

First glimpse of Siberia

Semey, Kazakhstan - Kosch-Agatsch, Russia. Berlin is only 626 kilometers away from Kaliningrad but we chose the long way to Russia: After 20.000 kilometers we're finally there. Siberia is green, vast and beautiful.

Preparations: Paperwork, medical and money

Before the real adventure begins there is an administrative adventure to master. Virtually endless To-Do-lists wait for your action. We thought we’d share some of that with you, since it can really make a difference for the real adventure.
