After the TDA

The two months after the TDA, were spent travelling through beautiful South Africa and gorgeous Namibia by car, wishing we were on our bikes.

European Cycling Trip – with a side trip back to Africa

After Africa, we flew to Vienna with the intention of slowly making our way to France or Spain. After cycling in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Montenegro and France we decided we missed Africa too much and took the ferry to Tunisia.

Southeast Asia Cycling Trip

After cycling through Tunisia, we were back on the ferry to France where we caught a flight to Thailand. Our Asian cycling journey started in Chiang Mai with the intention of making our way back to Bangkok after a few months cycling in Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.
