We are traveling on 2 BMW R80GS from March 2002 till March 2003. We started in Belgium then on to Italy, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Mongolia, and we're now back in Turkey and planning to go to Iran, Pakistan and India.

The story will be in Dutch language.

Pakistan (23/9 tot 05/10/02)

Net voor de grensovergang ontmoeten we Jurgen Homan,
de ambassadeur van Unicef Nieuw Zeeland op een
motorfiets BMW R 80 GS. Hij combineert zijn reis met
meetings van Unicef over een project tegen polio. Hij
is al 16 maanden onderweg en is nu op weg naar
Duitsland komende van Thailand en India. We krijgen
van hem de kaart van Pakistan mee en de Rough guide
van India in ruil voor onze kaarten van Iran en
Turkije.

India deel 1 (05/10 tot 25/10/02)

In Amritsar beslissen we uiteindelijk om in plaats van
rechtstreeks naar het zuiden te rijden (Goa), een
loupe te maken naar Dharamsala, het toevluchtsoord van
de Dalai Lama en vele Tibetanen. Het ligt op ongeveer
1700 meter hoogte aan de rand van de Himalaya.

Na 14 dagen rust op een strand onder de palmbomen

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
