Our plan

Since a very long time we have already been dreaming of a long trip made together. Over the years, that dream developed and became more and more specific. The 14th of February 2016, our adventure ‘GoingSouth’ was started and our dream has come true.

Thailand and Laos

Our first travel destination is South East Asia. During two months, we want to get to know northeast Thailand as well as the northwest of Laos by bike.

 

Japan and China

When travelling to South America, we will make a two-week stop-over each in China and Japan. In China we have the unique opportunity to participate in a study trip about the Chinese labour market. By bike again, we want to travel through Japan, the country with its hopefully still blooming cherry blossoms.

 

Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile

After being in Quito and spending a few days on the species-rich Galapagos Islands, we head southwards, following the famous Panamericana route - however, with a detour to the Andes. For eight months, we will be pedalling from Ecuador through Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile to Ushuaia, world’s southernmost city. 

 

South Africa

The last country we travel through is South Africa. Here, we want to get to know the Kruger National Park in the north and then finish our world trip after one year by cycling from Port Elizabeth along the Garden Route to Cape Town.
