1. Our Wedding.
“A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step”
For us, this day was that step….
What with all of our running around & preparing for the trip in the short weeks after our wedding we never really got the chance to share photos and footage with our friends and family that were there with us on the day.
So here’s a little selection of our favourite pics & the bits that make us smile that we can share with you now.
Unfortunately you can never really capture the whole picture, just what people thought to snap or video at the time when they weren’t too busy dancing!
It brings back truly great memories for us. We hope you enjoy it too & that some don’t find it too embarrassing…
2. A Day in the Life: Europe
5 months of Europe packed into 1 day. Enjoy…
3. Turkey Snapshots
A short one about turkeys… and Turkey…
4. The Road Less Travelled
Attempting to do things with fully loaded touring bikes that really shouldn’t be attempted… Adventurous yearnings in N-W Turkey.
5. Tribe Riding – Georgia
Riding en-masse through Georgia as part of an inter-european cycle touring co-operative, otherwise known as… THE TRIBE…
6. Uzbekistan – People, Places & Everything In-Between
The first of ‘The Stans’. Our road through Uxbekistan is documented through the amazing places and amazing people we encountered throughout this extraordinary and little known about country.
7. The Pamir Highway – Tajikistan
The Pamir Highway is infamous amongst cycle tourists as one of the world’s most spectacular and challenging high altitude routes. Stretching from Dushanbe in Tajikistan through to Osh in Kyrgyzstan, the road takes you through some of the most remote and harsh regions on the planet.
For us it was, in some ways, the pinnacle of the trip so far that had been eagerly and apprehensively anticipated since leaving the UK eight months previously.
It turned out to be more challenging, rewarding and certainly more sociable than either of us could have imagined…
8. Beach Shave – Kyrgyzstan

10. Old Manali Single-track – North-West India

11. Dal Lake Veg Market – Kashmir
An early morning wake up call from our lovely couch surfing hosts in Srinagar led us to be floating through the old town on their shikara (taxi boat) towards a unique and fascinating market that’s happened on Dal Lake for centuries.
