Hi Franck !
It's nice to have news from you on HU !
I'm really sorry I couldn't join you in KL after we met in Tanah rata (cameron highland). My phone was broken at this time and I didn't have your email adress.

After we met I faced many problems... health not good, first stomac infection, so I stayed one week more at our place with my friend in tanah rata, and then when I reached KL just before flying to Australia, it was leg infection... I decided to go Australia as I planned, but I was rejected after 24h in migrant detention center because my tourist visa was cancelled by immigration when I landed. They thought I was there to work illegaly... they deported me back to Malaysia where I couldn't get more than 1 week visa, so no other choice than leave my bike at my friend's place and fly back to France

I'm in France for almost 2 months now, I take rest and take care of my health waiting to sell my car and fly back to KL, pick up my bike and go ahead in my journey ! I can see Dylan's pictures of Australia and it looks beautiful... feel jalous !

Because I'm banned from Australia for the next 3 years, I have to plan an other route. So why not cross China and reach Mongolia, It's a serious option. the other option is to ship the bike to america but I'm afraid about the cost... I have to compare with the cost in China. Can you give me an idea about it !?

Where are you now ? everything okey lah !?
I wish you good luck, happy new year and I hope to see you again.

Cheers,

Matthieu on GS 1150

I am looking into the Nepal - Laos route. How much did that cost you (what guide and was it excluded stay and mails?).

hi matthieu
**** of australia. its expensive and all the snakes and spiders and crocodiles...;-)
i am ok lah. i am still in thailand. got visit from two girlfriends and my son.
joining my trip to mongolia is a good idea. if its only two of us the costs are about 2000 euro per person, for you maybe a little less. bur i hope to find more travellers.
ok, relax and become healthy again.
good luck and i hope to hesr from yo-u again...
