In the old time before drivers in huge trucks transported all kind of goods all over the world this important business was granted to a kind of herd boys and their camels along the Silk Road. As you can imagine e. g. peanuts where cheaply grown in Chengdu (China), transported on camel back to Milan…
On 16th June finally we were ready to head eastwards to find the starting point for the famous Silk Road. Effectively there are many theories about the place this ancient trading route should start from.
After Prado´s naturalization in Swizzyland it had some additional minor cosmetic surgery to undergo:
During our hibernation period in Swizzyland we intensively started learning Russian 2 prepare 4 the incredible challenges of our next trip. Well, 4 a while we had a lesson once a week 2 get some basics of this language.
Spring approaches, hibernation has to take an end.
After endless weeks of incredible winter weather, temperatures below 0, snow storms, ice covered landscapes and a huge bill for heating our flat, spring approaches. And finally our 1st sign after hibernation.
We travelled thru many different countries. On the way we lived all kind of experiences and adventures. We met a lot of different people and experienced many situations. Considering our background, many experiences were within our comprehension, others not easy to understand or to explain. We even lived some logics out of our understanding. Of…

On 6th December we have arrived in Laufenburg. And happily we’re back on our main road from Maseru 2 Punta Arenas.
Finally our trip Ouagadougou 2 Laufenburg took us 4 months’n’6 days.
We made 21.800 km, without any accident or mechanical problems and our tyre maintenance was limited 2 the repair of 2 punctures.
We visited 14 countries, the shortest visit was 4 hours – Gibraltar, the longest 6,5 weeks – Morocco.
By now we’re a little over a month in Morocco, but still on our way home. Maybe it’s not the most direct road 2 Laufenburg, but somehow and somewhen we’ll reach it. Our last post ended on Tizi-n- Aït- Hamed this spectacular mountain pass going up 2 3000m altitude. …
After a long time we’re back.
For some 5 weeks we could simply not access our website. After asking our dear provider we learnt that he does not provide this service in this country. Whatever that may mean. We put some energy in friendly correspondence with them without a too concrete answer.
But finally we got a kind of a perspective to have it activated again once out of Morocco – and, as you can see, it worked.
what the hell is a Tagine? Morocco
In the evening we went to our favourite restaurant to have one of the most famous Moroccan dishes: Tagine.
