We'll be leaving oct 18th for Kathmandu from the Netherlands. Planning to go through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Roemenia, Bulgary, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India. So, roughly the same route. Not sure if the timing is right but would love to meet you.
Have a save trip and maybe til somewhere in Iran or Pakistan.
Hope you are able to write a few blogs, we will look forward to reading as my wife and I are doing the same trip next year leaving 2nd week of August.
The only this that we seem unsure about is the climate/weather during the trip so will be good to se how you get on.
Have a fantastic trip, if you are having a stop over on route to Dover we are just off J14 M1 and have a sofa and secure parking if you need to get your head down.
Hey Fergus, well done for getting everything together and taking the plunge, did this trip in 02/03, it was fantastic and i am sure you will have a fantastic time. Well done for raising money too, which i didnt! take care, ride safely and enjoy it all. Lucky you...
I was going to B&B in Dover then ferry across to Calais.
I want to start on the Continent for around 9am then ride for about 250 miles or when my bum tells me that I am not going any further.
I aim to get to Ancona in three days.
Yea, the reason I am going at this time of the year is because the weather is cooler and the monsoon is finished in northern India and Nepal. By the way, I have lived in Nepal off-and-on for the last 16 years.
I rode down to Kerala from Delhi on an Enfield 350 January to March 2000. It didn't rain once!
I then put the original Asha on the train for three days and two nights to Gorakhpur 90ks short of the Nepali border.
Rode up to Kathmandu. Then in the July I hooked up with an American outfit, flew to Lhasa in Tibet then rode back on a Enfield 500 to Kathmandu.
Could life have been better? I don't think so.
I aim to be at Dover next Sunday night. Send me an email to email@example.com and we can chat more.
Good to hear that you are almost on the road.
I am still stuck in Romania, waiting on a radiator hose.
Should be moving on by the middle of next week.
Still aiming for the Pakistan/India border at the end of October.
See you around that time I hope.
