Almost in China !

I am finally entering Thailand and Laos, the last few hundred kilometres before the border of China. Every day now I can feel myself getting closer to the Land of my Destination.

Arriving in Iran

After biking 6000km, I still can’t believe that I made it here. When I started this trip in Paris, the name of Iran was synonymous with outlandish and unreachable.

Alone in Pellumba Cave

I pulled my camera and looked through the lens to immortalize the brick and stone building, when I heard a very familiar voice behind me.
