Hello from Austria

Hey there

my name is Chris and I'm from Austria. I'm 29 years old and I've finally decided that I can wait no longer. Bored as hell by day to day life and inspired by all those wonderful stories on the HUBB, I've decided to ride around the world on my motorbike. Provided I can get all the necessary visas in time, my trip should start in late June or early July.

The rough itinerary is as follows: Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Mongolia, Russia, South Korea, Canada, United States, Scotland, England and Wales, France, Germany, Switzerland, and back to Austria.

I know I miss out on a lot of exciting places in South America, Africa, the Middle East, the Indian sub-continet, South-East Asia, Australia, and so on. But I consider my first RTW trip only as the beginning of a long journey and I can't wait to get out there.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you and getting to know fellow travelers around the world.

Best
Chris

Hallo Thomas

ich fahre eine 1200 GS Adeventure. Und du?

"Just like Ewan and Charlie's" könnte ja sowohl eine 1150 als auch eine 1200 GS Adventure sein.

Hallo Christian,

I will leave the US on May 1st 2012. I assume at this point I'll make it to Germany by the end of July (i.e. 3 month, give or take)

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
