This is the travelblog of Cyril Ducau and Niccolo Manno on their adventure from London (Cyril), Munich (Niccolo) to Hong Kong on motorbikes.
It took us short of 3 months to do 20,000km on bikes, trains and planes. We crossed the following countries together:

Austria - Italy - Slovenia - Croatia - Serbia - Bulgaria - Turkey - Georgia - Azerbaijan - Turkmenistan - Uzbekistan - Kyrgyzstan - Kazakhstan - Russia - Mongolia - China - Hong Kong

On this site you will find some info on both of us, our bikes, some of our friendly helpers in Hong Kong and London and loads of pictures on our trip.

UK-France-Belgium-Germany

(Signs by the highway blown over by the wind)

The Western-European leg of the trip was supposed to be a walk in the park but this is so far quite challenging. A storm on the Channel delayed our ferry by about 4 hours and prevented Maddie and I reaching Brussels yesterday night. But the worst is the wind - 70 to 90km/h side winds since we left that forced me to constantly ride with a 10/15 degree angle. With the large surface of the bag and the side paniers, each blast shakes the bike quite dangerously and i have had to limit the speed to 100km/h. Will have to taste the freedom of the German highways some other time!

(In the morning by the coast in Dunkerque)

I left Maddie in Brussels at lunch time today - was quite emotional for the both of us! Should reach Köln later this afternoon and depending on how fresh i feel, i might try to get to FKT before nightfall and catch-up with the initial schedule.
