Hard to believe that it is exactly one year since we set out from Perth and rode off into the unknown. We haven't really made it that far yet but that's because we try not to rush through the countries we pass.
And what a year it's been...8 countries, each one of them fascinating in their own right. And now it's on to the 9th - Nepal. Shipping of the bikes was pretty straightforward (read all about it on the Shipping page).
On our last day here Mark got himself a new tattoo to add to the collection.
Mark with Mr Thira, our shipping agent
Front wheel off, handlebars dismounted, all ready to get crated
The guys did a great job wrapping EVERYTHING in bubble and shrink wrap
That's it, ready to go to the airport
Mark being a little cry baby
And the final result
Happy to be done!
You don't need a prescription to get meds around here -
just pop down to the nearest street corner and you shall find.
Mark with Stef, the French Africa Twin rider and Frank, the German KTM rider. Frank is flying to Kathmandu same day as us whereas Stef will stay in Bangkok where he is trying hard to organise shipping to Africa. It has not been easy for him so we keep our fingers crossed that it will happen soon!
On our last night I just had to get my last serving of Sticky Rice with Mango - it's sooo good.
