This is the second part of the world cycling tour ATW – Around the World, which began in 2011 with a ride from Passau, Germany to Istanbul, Turkey. I flew to Istanbul with Michi, the same partner I completed ATW ’11 with, in early 2015. Our plan is to ride from Turkey through Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia all the way down to Singapore. In this series of articles I want to tell – in a not too serious way – about what happens to us along the way.
