Route

This is the outline of my route. I love planning but the beauty of this trip is that I can change my plans any time I want. The map will be a record of those changes. The planned route is in red and the actual one in blue, in orange are the places I have visited off the bike. When the planned and the actual routes coincide only the blue will show.

In the next pages there are tables for each country providing information about:

  • Start and finish point of each day
  • Daily distance in km
  • Cumulative information

On the days I cross a border,  the information is included in the table of the country where I started the day.

The tables are in chronological order so the most recent are last.

Please note distances are approximate as I haven’t got an odometer and I use Maps. Me and Google Maps to calculate the daily distance.

  1. Hola Blanca!
    Te conocí como voluntaria de Madagascar 2014 y me contaste que harias GobiMarch en 2015 junto a tu hija, pero en menuda eventura te has metido. ¡Que envidia!

    Seguire tu blog 😉

    Un abrazo

  2. Hola querida:

    Hoy el sueño se hace realidad.

    Y empieza una nueva experiencia, casi casi una nueva vida. Estoy segura de que verás lugares magníficos e irrepetibles, conocerás personas inolvidables, aprenderás palabras nuevas y reconoceras sentimientos ya vividos. Entre otras muchas cosas será una experiencia excitante y divertida, a veces un poco triste o dura pero, todo eso es vivir. Disfrútala y luego cuéntanos lo que sea posible.

    ¡Qué los dioses te acompañen!

    Miles de besos
    Soco

  3. Hi Blanca
    Not sure where to leave you a message so am doing it here! Just wanted to say how lovely and inspirational it is to read your posts. Like you I have found that travel transforms me – my mindset, my views of ‘others’, my sense of the shape of the world, the simple generous actions of others – it strips life down to the essentials.
    So just wanted to say I am following you and being with you on your journey. Keep safe.
    Love Elaine

  4. Hello Blanca !
    Enfin je te retrouve. Nous nous sommes rencontrées le long du Danube, peu après les sources. J’étais en vacances avec ma famille et nous avions fait connaissance un soir près de ta tente et ton vélo. Puis nous nous sommes recroisées à Ulm et un soir je ne sais plus dans quel camping; d’ailleurs sur la photo “meetings in campsites” j’ai reconnu nos vélos !
    J’avais perdu le petit papier surlequel tu avais inscrit le nom de ton blog mais à force de chercher sur le net, je t’ai retrouvée. Quelle joie de suivre ton périple, de voir que tu as encore la forme ! Je t’admire vraiment beaucoup.
    Dans ma tête, l’idée de suivre ton exemple fait peu à peu son chemin; peut-être un jour ???
    A bientôt sur ton blog

  5. Hello Blanca!
    I hope you liked to travel through Romania even though weather was sometimes the antagonist. We don’t have special landscapes but we are hospitable and invite you to us.

  6. Good advice Darren! I have just ineetsvd in 2 Ortlieb water sacks, and have 1.5l in two bottles on the frame (third position taken up by a fuel bottle under the down tube).The Ortliebs are flattish when filled and sit inside the back hold-all on top of the frame with the tent, sleeping bag and therm-a-rest (each in its own dry bag). The two litre size is easy to fit into a relatively small space. They are made of very rugged material and I will probably get two more as they roll up small and are light when not in use. Glad you enjoyed the last tour!

  7. Hello Blanca!
    Congratulations on your trip so far! You’ve done so well and I know it’s tough on your own at times, but OHHHHH! the rewards are great! I am planning on being in Pakistan in late May/June doing the Karakoram, but coming in from India, going north to the border with China, and then back down into India and continuing north again into Kashmir/Ladakh, Leh route before heading across Nepal…etc…If you think to join me, even for the Karakoram I would be very happy! I know your route is the opposite of what I am doing, but just thought I’d give you another option!!! I like riding by myself, but sometimes it’s nice to join in with another person too!
