The dream: travel the world on our motorbike.
The goal: Beijing
The date: July 1, 2016

With these three ingredients we prepare to face the longest journey we ever undertaken with our bikes, two Honda Transalp and one Africa Twin. The departure is scheduled on July 1st from the province of Brescia – one hour from Milano – to Ancona, where we will embark for Igoumenitsa, Greece. From then on, only asphalt and paths will cross Turkey, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, the Pamir region, Kyrgyzstan, to enter, to the end of July, in China, where we will face the second half of the trip, with still about 8,000 kilometers to arrive in Beijing. A stop is planned to Everest Base Camp. For the time being we are still in the phase of preparation, both physical and mental, and administrative. The road to acquire all visas and permits is quite tortuous, we need a good dose of patience and organization. And, with a bit of luck, a material support from some sponsors willing to join us on this adventure. These pages will try to narrate, on a regular basis, our progression of the journey, and will be our Ariadne’s thread, rolled like a ball of yarn, kilometer after kilometer. From Brescia to Beijing. On the road again!
