"We decided to ride around the Son Kol lake the night before. The place was too beautiful to ride through it in rush. In the evening, we crawled into our sleeping bags with a clear sky above. In fact, we didn’t even pitch the tent. Within an hour, the clouds crept in from behind the mountains and sat on their peaks. They stayed there for the whole next day drizzling on us as we were following the jeep tracks. The storm was yet to come, but the tune of Jimmy’s “Riders on the storm” was already stuck in our minds" | Regranned from @pan.ba

"Soplaba viento, hacia calor, la ruta era de arena. La subida era constante, las ruedas se enterraban y el lugar al que debíamos llegar no llegaba nunca. Andrés frena a lo lejos, me mira y cuando estamos a la par me dice: ¿estás convencida de estar acá? Al principio no entendía el porqué de su pregunta porque si estoy en un lugar es porque quiero estar. Creo que no hace falta estar convencida de algo para hacerlo (cuántas veces dudamos de nuestra capacidad para cumplir lo que nos proponemos o no tenemos la certeza de que lo vamos a poder hacer). Por eso mi respuesta (resumida) fue: basta de poner en duda si disfruto o no de lo que elijo hacer. Viajar en bicicleta no es sinónimo de sonrisas Colgate las 24 horas (menos con viento, calor y pendientes eternas), basta de ponerle expectativas a las cosas y a las personas. Será que con los 31 me estoy volviendo más neutral y el disfrute de los viajes los estoy sintiendo de otra manera o será que me cansé de que duden de las elecciones y la fuerza de una mujer cuando las condiciones no son las mejores.

"The last weeks we cycled without Internet through the Himalayas and couldn't give you an update! So finally, here are our Top 12 Pictures from our Tour through the Himalayas and the Spiti Valley in Northern India! 
Picture 3/12 
So this is really a good one we think! ^^ The "Border Roads Organisation" or short, BRO, has many of these signs all along Spiti Valley. They have many good rhymes, but we think this was our favourite! What do you think? 😁" | Regranned from @rausgefahren

"This picture was taken after we had a long night in @basssiani in Tiblisi. Still feeling the crushing electro beats in our legs, we felt like flying up the next pass. We have been accompanied by this dog (see left corner). First, he attacked @julius.wie and bit in his panniers. Then, he suddenly started to like us. We finished the day having a nice barbecue with the amazing @elduccce and @gvinjiliaagela who invited us to chill with them. What a day!" | Regranned from @crictor_the_bike_constrictor

"We've made it to Khorog! It's been a hard slog for the past 10 days yet we've had so many magical views like this to help entice us around every corner. 4 days in @twobiketo hunted us down and we rode the rest of the way along the Panj river (separating Tajikistan and Afghanistan) together, making it all the more enjoyable. Tomorrow we'll take a day off to give the bikes a once over and stock up on supplies before we hot the high plateau of the Pamir highway" | Regranned from @readcycleread

"Blowin 'in the wind of Patagonia. I will not forget the sight of this time. In my life, because there was such a place, you can return to this place anytime and be blown as it is.

パタゴニアの風に吹かれて。この時の光景を今も忘れない。僕の人生には、こんな場所があったのだから、いつでもこんの場所に戻って気ままに吹かれていいのだか" | Regranned from @ryohei_oguchi

"No tengo idea por qué, pero hoy mientras me alejaba de las montañas de Córdoba me vi esa misma sonrisa.
La misma que cuando cruzaba el Death Valley o los Picos de Europa, la misma que reía bajo el turbante en el atardecer de Marruecos o la misma que surcaba esos Andes de incontables recuerdos.
.
He decidido que voy a llevar esta vida un tiempo.
(Día 1671 de la Vuelta al Mundo en Bicicleta)

.
I don’t know why, but today while I was going away from the mountains of Córdoba I saw that same smile.
The same one as when crossing the Death Valley or the Picos de Europa, the same one that laughed under the turban in the Moroccan sunset or the same one that crossed those Andes of countless memories.
.
I’ve decided I'm going to live this life for some time to come.
