Smile starting point

Hello all,

I made it to my starting point. Sagres in Portugal. The bike runs well, very well after a complete engine overhaul, and I have my Russian visa in my passport (thats what the agency tells me).

There a lot of question marks still up for my trip, but I made it until here, so I will inshallah make it all the way. China is going to be the first problem, lets see what the agency tells me about the visa. Than its going to be Iran, I know I will manage this on my own. Last but not least, Saudi Arabia has started a war with Yemen, so lets see what this will be like when I get there in the end of the year.

See you on the road
mika

Kashgar (Chine) - Tibet - Katmandou

Bonjour,
Nous traverserons le Tibet depuis le Kirghizistan du 28 septembre au 21 octobre 2015 et nous sommes à la recherche d'autres véhicules afin de diminuer le coût. Pour l'instant 2 véhicules sûrs sont inscrits dans l'agence Chengdu Greatway Tour Co (Voyage au Tibet et Trekking au Tibet, Self-drive au Tibet, Kailash Trekking | Voyageautibet.com). C'est l'agence la plus intéressante qu'on ait pu trouver. Si voulez la contacter, demandez Nicolas.
Pour plus de renseignements, notre blog :
Voyage à l'autre bout du monde en Land
Bien cordialement,

Pierrette et Denis Robin

I'm getting plenty of practice at my very poor schoolboy French right now... Depending on the weather tomorrow I might get as far as the German border where I can again fail to comprehend the language

Ukraine.

anyone who is traveling east from Europe towards Russia and Mongolia, I am living in Ukraine and available to assist/offer accomadtion etc.

During my trip to Mongolia last summer, I was hosted and assisted by many great people, and would like to do the same.

I am located just outside Kiev, close to Borispol airport.

I can provide good up to date information about Eastern Ukraine, routes across the country and which borders are open/best to use.
I can offer camping/accomadtion, assistance with servicing, language, finding spare parts....just general support and assistance, if it's needed.
Failing that, a place to park the bike, a , fireplace and a place to crash.

One can contact me on ryanjohnhall at gmail dot com which I check fairly frequently.

Peaceful, safe and fun travels...

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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.
