Relaxing in the Jungle?!

on 2016-09-25 in Laos
Since the last couple of days had been quite exhausting in China we were pretty relieved to cross into Laos. We immediately all agreed to drive to the first tourist town nearby and stay there for at least a couple of days. Relaxing was our main priority.
It was just about 50 kilometers from the border to Luang Namtha but we were quite impressed by the extraordinary green landscape, the green mountain tops and the sheer number of various plants. We were instantly struck by this beauty and were looking forward to the next couple of days.

We found a nice hotel and our home for the next couple of days right in the center of Luang Namtha. We were able to park the bikes in an inner courtyard. We planned to stay between 3-5 nights here and ride further south then. The days went by and we all just moved from our room to the restaurant - still in the courtyard - and back. It was perfect!! One day a couple of Italians, Luca and Luca, suddenly showed up and asked us if we would like to join them for a soccer match against a couple of Laotians. Our soccer abilities are as bad as Germans can possibly get but that did not stop us from joining them for a proper match of course. A small game in someones backyard would not be a problem we thought.
We were ready and waiting for the Luca's in our room. We were quite surprised to see them walk up to us in brand new football socks and cleets. A bit confused we asked them if they always took their own soccer gear on their journeys. Their answer threw us off completely! They just had bought these shoes for tonights game. They explained further that we were going to take a Tuk Tuk to the nearby soccer field with floodlight. We had scheduled a match with a couple of Laotian soccer players that played 3-4 times a week! Of course we had...

Once we arrived we were quite relieved to see that the soccer field was "just" a small field. Another game just finished and we were allowed to go on the field and "warm up". The referee set the clock to 30 minutes and the score to 0 - 0. We were ready for the first half of Europe vs. Laos. At first it looked quite good for Europe, with every step we did our opponents had to do three to catch up. Dribbling around us turned out to be quite difficult for them because we always managed to get our long legs in front of them. But after a while we got surprised how bad in shape we actually were. Denis was not sure at the end of the first half if his legs would not simply give way to his weight. Even though Basti and Fabi looked a bit more in shape we were all trying our hardest to catch our breath. The second half was a bit better but it was incredible how badly out of shape we were. But in the end we managed, mainly thanks to the good and sporty Lucas, to win 14 - 13. We had really a lot of fun and with our last strength we pushed us back into the Tuk Tuk to get back to our room before our legs gave up.

Luca and Luca are a bit overambitious and so they had convinced us to join them for a rafting trip the next day. But since we mainly used our legs playing soccer we knew it was no problem straining our arms the next day. But sincerely it was a great time and we were already looking forward to the next day on the boats.

As expected our legs were terribly sore the next day. Nonetheless we were excited about our kajaking trip along the Nam Tha river. Early in the morning we were picked up by a tuk tuk and brought to the river. It took us about an hour in the tuk tuk and we were quite eager to get into the kajaks once we arrived. Our group consisted of the two Luca's, Gail (whom we still could not get rid off ;) ) and us three. After just a few meters we were surprised by the beauty of the scenery around us. The river was quite slow but along the river were amazing plants and huge trees. We were floating right through the thickest jungle we had ever seen. Incredible mountains, overgrown by amazing plants, some of them had leaves as big as umbrellas. Except for a couple of small rapids the river was rather slow and relaxed. We all had a lot of fun watching the two Lucas freak out about each tiny spider that fell into their boat. This quickly led them to loose control of their kanu which in turn caused them to hit more branches with more spiders on it. :)

It was all fun and games until we reached a certain rapid with a tight corner. Gail and Denis were quite amused to see the two Italians navigate the kanu straight into the bend and backwards out of the corner. They laughed quite loud just to make a fatal mistake right after them. After a perfect right bend into the rapid they got carried to far to the right in the following left corner. Because of this they hit with the broadside of the blowup kanu a tree in the middle of the stream. Since the river was quite fast at that point the kanu was pressed hard against the tree and half of it was pressed under water. Gail went overboard and struggled quite a bit with the heavy stream. He was pressed against the boat by the current and was unable to free himself right away. Denis still sat on a small part of the boat that was still over the water. In that moment Basti and Fabi arrived at the same spot. Because the part was to narrow with the turned over boat, they had problems to navigate through. For a brief moment they also hit the boat and Gail with it, just before the entire boat also turned over and threw them off. Gail managed to free himself thereafter and dove under the boat to the save shore. Fabi managed to get back into their boat and started to collect all the things from the others boat. After a short while Denis managed to free his boat as well. He quickly noticed one of Gails shirts was missing as well as one of our GoPro's. To catch our breath we got some lunch in a little village alongside the river. They even had a little monkey their with whom Fabi and Denis had a lot of fun with. The rest of the journey was rather uneventfull but we already had more than enough for that day.

We took another day off afterwards to recover from those busy two days. So after just a little over a week we rode on towards Luang Prabang.

Sunset on the Mekong river

on 2016-10-01 in Laos
Our route led us alongside the most beautiful greens and large rice fields. We had already seen a couple of rice fields in China but Laos took it to the next level. In most fields we saw some Laotians with pointy straw hats that where apparently busy inspecting their crops. We only knew this picture from magazines or videos but this time we were in the middle of it with our own bikes. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

We had met a couple from our hometown Munich in Luang Namtha and they had given us the location of a nice hostel in Luang Prabang. We arrived at the so called Sa Sa Lao just after noon and we were in no way disappointed. Led by a french expat we found ourselves in an incredible relaxed atmosphere. This evening we spent on a small boat ride enjoying the sunset and ourselves even more.

The next day we had planned to ride to the Kuang Si Waterfall. We were surprised by the fact that they had set up a small Moonbear retreat at the same spot. Since the gall bladder is still used for medicine some of the bears spent their entire life in a 2 m² cave up until they stop producing gall bladder. Then they are brutally killed. The Asiatic Black Bear rescue centre tries to free the bears from their caves and nurture them back to health. We passed various large enclosures with different bears in it until we reached the impressive waterfall. There was a small trail leading up to the top of the waterfall. Even Gail who is normally not that big on hiking joined us walking up. Because of the high moisture and what felt like 35°C we were soaking wet when we finally arrived at the top. But it was worth walking up this time, even when a waterfall is always more impressive at the bottom then at the top.

We had booked another boat ride but this time along the Mekong river and for a further distance. So we were able to enjoy another very laid back sunset with our little group. After the boat ride we headed to the Utopia Bar, a meeting place for every backpacker and other traveler in Luang Prabang. We had some pizzas and a couple of beers there and some interesting conversations with other travelers. Since the bars in Luang Prabang closed at 11 pm already we soon headed back to grab a tuk tuk home. Basti was a bit ahead and just when Denis got to the main road he saw him prosting a shot of Tequila with a Laotian at a nearby restaurant. Denis immediately joined in and so our journey home moved into the far distant. Gail and Fabi managed to catch a tuk tuk home and Basti and Denis joined the table for a couple more drinks. The bar wanted to close as well but none of them wanted to go home yet, so the group moved to the house of one of the group and the party kept on going. The night was a bit longer than anticipated but we had a lot of fun and we proved you do not always have to go home when it is best...

Basti joined Alex (the host of the night before) for an evening at the pool and a typical Laotian dinner. Fish in banana leaves, steamed over a pot on top of wooden fire.

Thanks again for the invitation and the incredible hospitality!

Floating away

on 2016-10-06 in Laos
Basti and Denis had to cover just 186 km to Vang Vieng that day. To be as relaxed as possible they started in the late afternoon. Fabi had picked up Steffi and was heading towards the same town.

The small city of Vang Vieng offers not a lot of culture but on the other hand has one bar after another and party every day. Everyone but Denis went to bed early that day because they wanted to be ready for the following day. We had planned to go tubing down the river stopping at every possible bar nearby. Denis eager not to disappoint the city stayed up with Francesco and his friends - he had met them already in Luang Prabang.

So the next day we went tubing. Tubing is a sport where you sit in an old lorry tire and float downstream jumping out at every possible bar along the way. For amateurs it is a difficult exercise but we had luckily already practiced in the river Isar in Munich. After just 50 meters was the first stop and it was incredible how many struggled to come ashore. They played good music and a couple of fun games. We had the best weather and after just a little while we made it to the second bar. Here we were able to relax a little, chilling in some hammocks. The way back lasted for almost an hour and one had a lot of time watching the sun set behind the beautiful mountains. We managed to come ashore just before the darkness had settled.

Since we wanted to see a little bit more than just the bars we decided to go to the nearby blue lagoon. Even though it was more a green lagoon when we got there, it was still a welcomed refreshment from the heat of day. Especially since a tree that grew over the water and was used as a natural diving point. We were soon surrounded by a lot of tourists, further some Asians with bright life jackets showed up. Even though it was a lot of fun watching them jump into the water just to be pushed up immediately by the life vests. Since there was a cave nearby we decided to grab the opportunity by the hand and check it out for ourselves.
After an exhausting walk up the hill we walked into the cave through a narrow entrance. The sun still shined into the cave at the beginning which in turn made for a spectacular view. We pushed further and further into the depths of the cave until we had to turn on our flashlights. It was an amazing feeling to walk into the depths of this cave without any restrictions. We headed further down but since we only had two flashlights for 4 persons and Denis was not sure how long his batteries would keep up we later decided it was best to turn around. Only after we had explored almost the entire cave and spent a little over 2 hours walking in the pitch black we decided to go back. We managed to leave the cave just when the sun had set and went back to our hotel.

The time in Vang Vieng flew by us and so we soon had to head towards Vientiene, the capital of Laos. And since we are always very responsible we had just a good dinner without party that night to be ready to ride the next morning.

It flies!

on 2016-10-10 in Laos
Just before we arrived in Vientiane we were surprised to see a big 4x4 Toyota with tent on top and yellow license plates. We immediately knew it was Elco and Fleur, two of our Chinese group. We had a short talk in the heat of the day and decided to meet up later that day for dinner and drinks.
None of us had a lot to tell since we all had been taking things real slow in Laos. We still had a lot of fun that night talking about past memories.

Basti, Fabi and Steffi decided to have a short look at the city the next day. There were a couple of little temples that were quite nice but sadly the main attraction, the Pha That Luang, was all covered up due to restauration work. We decided to head out the next day with the destination Kong Lor. It is a 7,5 km long cave which you can travel through by boat.

As it turned out on our way we managed to find a beautiful mountain pass in which we could let the bikes fly for a while. Once we arrived we found a nice hotel next to some large rice fields. We were the only visitors and since Steffi had brought our new drone - yes we finally have a drone again!!! - we decided this would be the perfect spot to test it out. It did not take long until a couple of kids showed up in the yard. At first they were a little shy and did not really know what to think of the drone. But they quickly started to get more used to it and always came closer to it. So we spent our time chasing the kids around the property until all our batteries were done. At that point Basti and Fabi had to make due as their new toys. Taking a couple of kids on their backs jumping around with them, picking them up and spinning around with them. They had a lot fun and Fabi and Basti sure did not need any more training that day. We had so much fun with them and it was an incredible experience how lovely and considerate they were to one another and also to us.

A day later we went into the Kong Lor cave. At the largest point it spans 90 meters wide and 100 meters high. By boat we explored this magnificent cave, just a little part of the cave was lit up in various colors and that part could be taken by foot. For the rest of the time the light from the headlamp was the only thing we had. If you looked to far in the distant the light was lost in the dark. Gail and Denis boat from time to time got stuck and they had to get out and give it a push. The cave was another marvelous adventure for us and we were excited to go further south.

Getting off track again

on 2016-10-14 in Laos
Basti and Denis decided to try and take a smaller road, then the main road along the Thai border. Since Fabi still had his leaking suspension and of course more weight - because of the obviously light Steffi, but all the heavy luggage - he decided not to join the others to not stress the bike any further. Since the day started with a little rain, Gail decided to stay with Fabi and Steffi for another day.

The weather was intermediate for a while until Basti and Denis got into a big shower just before they arrived at their destination. Even though they got soaked to the skin they were still able to enjoy the bizarre landscape around them. We road on a beautifully paved road through something like a lake or a swamp with tons of little islands. In the water were old dead trees that gave this scene an out worldly flair.
Our hotel consisted of a couple of bungalows right in front of the lake. We were the only guests but one other German that had worked in Laos and was now on his journey home - on a bicycle. With the right weather this would have been a nice place to stay for a while.

Luckily the next day was sunny. First we took some nice drone footage of the surrounding area. Fabi and Steffi were taking the same route along the river and then back to the main road. We on the other hand had planned to take another smaller road which quickly turned into a dirt road. We were not 100% certain if we would be able to cross one river but as usual were quite confident about it. The track was extremely muddy and slippery and to make things worse also covered with puddles and potholes. We stayed on this road for about 70 kilometers and struggled on the last few kilometers with deeper and more slippery mud puddles. In the end we had to give up. Basti's bike was stuck so deep that a couple of the villagers on their way back from the fields had to help us getting his bike out. We saw another chance to cross the river on our navigators but it was 20 kilometers further. After we checked out the first couple of meters of the road we evaluated the risk of there being no bridge to high and decided to turn around. We knew we had terrible 70 kilometers in front of us and with only one hour of daylight left we knew we would end up in the dark. We made our way across the dirt road just when the sun was setting and managed to get back to the paved road. We were actually very relieved to be back on tarmac and our thirst for offroad riding had been quenched as well.

Since we lost a lot of time with our detour, Fabi and Steffi had passed us and we met (almost) by accident at the same place in Thakhek. Since Fabi had arrived quite a bit earlier, he was able to follow our failed attempt on our satellite tracker and saw when we arrived in the city.

Water falling everywhere

on 2016-10-16 in Laos
Before we set off to Pakse Basti and Denis had to get some sticky mud off their bikes. Luckily there was a high pressure washer just in front of Fabi and Steffis hotel. The pressure was so high that we probably could have washed down the paint of the bikes.

When we arrived in Pakse we were told that there was a big Buddhist festival this evening. We could not entirely figure out what it was all about but it was still spectacular. A parade with a lorry, loud music and people dancing through the streets followed by countless of happy faces with candles. Later we witnessed a drum contest where the winner was either the one with the most hits or with the loudest. We could not really figure out that part. Meanwhile people put small flower baskets with candles and joss sticks in the river. Also there were some long wooden boats brightly lit up by candles floating down the river. You could buy sky lanterns that you could then launch over the river.

Even though they were nice to watch once they were up in the air it was a lot more fun to watch people trying to start them. It was quite windy which meant you had to be careful not to let the cold air into the balloon. So most of the balloons either went up in fire before lifting off, flew burning through the crowd, never lifted up higher than 10 cm of the ground or tumbled over the grass until they hit the water. If all would have went up in the air it surely would have been more spectacular. But we guess at least two thirds burned or fell into the river. Obviously we also tried our luck and succeeded to start one ourselves!

The next day was perfect for our water enthusiast Basti. There is a well known loop on the Bolaven Plateau which takes three days. We decided to do it a bit quicker and so we visited 4 waterfalls in two days. The famous Tad Fane was the most spectacular waterfall for us as well. But all of them were more than worth the time. Especially because we would get real close to some.

Fabi had had a high fever that night and therefore been to the hospital to get checked for Malaria or Dengue. Luckily both tests were negative and so we set off to our last destination in Laos, the 4000 islands near the Cambodian border.

Ready for the islands

on 2016-10-18 in Laos
We wanted to see as much as possible of Laos so obviously we could not pass up the chance to visit one of the 4000 islands. Without fear (maybe a little ;) ) we put our bikes on small ferries and set course to Don Det. Gail was already waiting for us. At first we were told they could not take bikes, then they said one at a time and go back and forth for 3 hours… In the end we had two bikes on one ferry and three ferries going simultaneously since there were some scooter riders taking up the opportunity. So instead of three hours it took us roughly 20 minutes in the end.

From the point where we landed there were some bars and restaurants. Our bungalows were just one “street” over and right in front of the Mekong with a beautiful view of the sunset. If one were to leave the small village, you could easily explore the entire island or even go over a small bridge to the next island called Don Khon. The main path was a bit too boring for us which is why we decided to take an even smaller trail. Everything was fine up until the road was blocked by large bushes that grew above it. Since we are not good at turning around we had to start a little jungle expedition to find a path around. A lot of sweat, some scratches and a couple of mosquito bites later we managed to overcome the blockade. Now we were finally able to continue to the end of the island from which we were able to see our next destination - Cambodia. On our way back we decided to take the main road this time.

The last day before returning to mainland we decided to take a canoeing trip along the islands. We were told we would be able to see or even swim with some river dolphins but they sadly did not want to show themselves to us that day. It was still a lot of fun and we saw some great scenery. We even went to the Khone Phapheng waterfall, which is the widest waterfall in the world. The next day we loaded our bikes back up and road to the border. Leaving Laos was easy as expected and left us with many incredible experiences of a remarkable country. Khobchai Laos!

Vielen Dank Michl,
nein gstritten wäre übertrieben. Wir haben nur feststellen müssen dass wir sehr unterschiedliche Auffassungen vom Ende der Tour hatten.
Daher konnten wir auch keinen Kompromiss mehr finden und die Trennung war letztlich die einzige Möglichkeit alle zufrieden zu stellen.
Wir freuen uns aber schon auf das baldige Wiedersehen!

Moin Männers!
Nachdem ich vor einiger Zeit alle Eure Video geschaut habe, hab ich jede freie Minute in den letzten Tagen genutzt um Euren Blog von vorne bis hinten zu lesen (inkl. der beiden Alt-Touren).
Was soll ich sagen, außer, dass mein Leben jetzt keinen Sinn mehr hat, weil ich nichts mehr zu lesen habe:

MEGA GEILE STORY!
Es hat mir so unfassbar viel Spaß gemacht Eure Geschichten zu lesen, danke dafür!

Solltet Ihr jemand in den Deutschen Norden kommen, bitte bescheid geben! Lade Euch gerne auf ein oder zwei Bier ein :D

Hi Robert,
vielen danke für deine Kritik! Haben wir bisher noch nicht gehabt. Dass wir ziemlich hinten dran sind ist absolut richtig, wir nehmen uns gerade eine kleine Auszeit um aufzuholen.
Allerdings kann ich deinen Punkt zu den Sponsoren und Spenden überhaupt nicht nachvollziehen. Wir sind überrascht und froh wie wenig wir die Sponsoren erwähnen müssen. Außer in der eher kleinen Rubrik Support kommt eigentlich nichts in der Richtung vor.
In den nächsten Wochen werden wir auf jeden Fall zügig aufschließen und du darfst viele neue Berichte und Videos erwarten :)

Hallo,
ich hab Euch in Osoyoos am Campingplatz getroffen und finde Eure Tour. Leider find ich Euren Internetauftritt nicht besonders aktuell.
Mit am meisten Raum nimmt der Verweis auf gesponsorte Produkte und der Aufruf zu Spenden ein
Schade.
Webseiten anderer Weltreisender sind da wesentlich interessanter und aktueller mit mehr persönlichen Eindrücken.
Da drückt man dann vielleicht auch mal eher auf den Spenden Button.

Trotzdem weiterhin viel Spaß und gutes Durchkommen bei Eurer Tour

Hey Phil,
das ist ja super von dir! Fabi hat bereits 2 mal seine Gabeln deswegen austauschen müssen. Zumindest das zweite mal geht jetzt schon mal sicher auf Garantie!
Das erste mal war auch eher ein Crash und somit wohl kein Garantie Fall.
Er fährt jetzt übrigens mit zusätzlichen Klemmen als Verstärkung!
Phil
2017-07-27 10:34:27
Wichtige Info für Fabi!
Rückruf von BMW für die GS, wegen Problemen mit den Standrohren
der Telelever. Im harten Einsatz können sich die oberen Stopfen lösen. Werkstätten pressen Hülsen zur Verstärkung auf. Am besten
bei einer BMW Werkstatt vorbei-
fahren und prüfen lassen.

Have you checked if you can take the drone to all countries you plan to visit? I could imagine some borders might give you a really hard time if you have drone...

Also Leute, dass geht ja wohl überhaupt nicht. Ich schaue jeden Tag ob es Neuigkeiten von euch gibt und ihr lasst nichts von euch hören oder sehen. Unglaublich!
Natürlich Quatsch! Ich verfolge seit geraumer Zeit euren Blog voller Ungeduld und sauge jeden eurer Beiträge auf. Ich finde eure Aktion super und drücke euch beide Daumen für eure weitere Reise.

Hey guys! Great to meet you in Death Valley! I took a couple photos, and a small video of you going through the slot canyon. If you're interested in getting those, let me know where it would be best to send it! Also, let me know if you're planning to head to San Diego, California. Happy Trails! Trixxie

Hallo Leute,
ich bin gerade zufällig auf Eure Seite gestoßen. Sehr schön und informativ gemacht. Den Tipp mit dem magnetischen 12V-Verbinder kannte ich noch nicht. Das realisiere ich vielleicht, wenn ich von meiner Reise zurück bin. Denn wir könnten uns demnächst begegnen, wenn ich ab Sonntag in Halifax bin und von dort aus Richtung Süden starte. Einen Blog habe ich mal aufgesetzt und da ist auch meine Position per Tracker sichtbar. Würd` mich freuen, wenn wir uns mal auf einem Campingplatz treffen.

Hey Basti, Hope you were able to replace the chair in Munich. Nice meeting you at SFO airport. Love your website; what a great trip you are on! You have crossed the Rubicon. No going back.
Via con Dios,

you'll love the mavic pro. got it for a bike trip myself and the active track funktions are perfect for following bikes even at higher speeds. looking forward to watch new videos from your trip.

cheers,
