In April 2007 we started our open-end trip into retirement! We fulfil our long time dream. The first part took us directly from our house in Vals Switzerland to Japan, often along the legendary Silk Road. We passed through Slovenia, Ukraine, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Jeman, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kirgistan and we wanted to finish this first part of our trip with the Himalayan Tibet Route until Lhasa, which was for political reasons not possible. South East Asia and Southern China was the next part before visiting Japan.
Then biking from Central America down to Patagonia and back up north, through Brazil to Colombia. After over 4 years on the road it was time for Africa. And from November 2011 on, cycling in India will be a new challenge.

After exciting 5 years with the bicycle on the road we return back home to Switzerland in Mai 2012, then spend a winter season as caretakers of the small mountain restaurant on Dachberg in Vals.
June 2013 a training tour from Rome to Vals, then August 2013 up to January 2014 across the high passes in Ladakh, Zanskar, Kaschmir (North India) and then exotic holidays in Sri Lanka.
Mai to December 2014 pedalling through beautiful landscapes and National Parks in USA (Great Divide MB trail)/Canada/USA (Cascade Route) and Baja California (Mexico).
