Good Morning! We have a new type of video for you! We want to show you a whole day on our worldtrip Where we are cycling Where we are The people we meet What we are eating Things like this It’s almost live! We are now in northern Kazakhstan About 400km north of Astana Today we want to do about 100km But first we have breakfast now Today we have oats with fresh fruits My morning routine – I write my Diary The experiences we made and what we did yesterday For example we cycled 103km yesterday Slept here in the tent and spent 4€ It was quite a great day yesterday We’ve met some police officers Who invited us for a snack And they gave us Cognac and Beer And the Fruits we had for breakfast Cool! I’m writing that down now It’s for the Blogarticles And maybe as a script for a book later This is now one year – it’s almost full Our campingspot a bit off the road In a small foresty area Here are many weird Herbs Maybe you can recognize it? Write a comment If you know what it is 😉 I’m not quite sure! We finished breakfast Now we pack our stuff And hit the road We are back on the road Yesterday we decided To make a little detour from the main road First 50km the street was good But now it’s like this We hope it gets better later Roadworks are finished here Next stop is Chikalovo I think that’s the name of the village It’s 30km and then the street will be better That’s also daily business Always go back And grab the camera It’s crazy how different the roads are On which we are cycling One week ago we left Cheljabinsk in Russia We cycled on the Highways all the time All day long surrounded by trucks Who honked and pushed us off the road And stuff like that Actually it was like that the whole time in Russia Pretty crazy Roads And now we are here In the middle of the steppe Somewhere in nowhere land No people On a gravel road Just we and the wind Crazy On the right side is a paved road We check if we can get there I’ll check it If it’s not wet and how deep is the ditch No Second try Looks good The angle is not so good But with two persons That’s why we couldn’t get on the road before I think it’s closed No one is driving here And the potholes Doesn’t seem to be userfriendly Hello! Where are you from? USA? No! From Germany! Germany, or!? You’ve been in Astana? In Astana is… In our capital city Astana is the EXPO! I’m a sportsman too I’ve a goldmedal from the president I carried the olympic flame! I hoisted up the kazakh flag Which sport? Combined Running, shot puts, shooting, skiing, pull ups and swim What’s your name? My name is Michel! Romash! Olga! Pleasantly! Bon voyage! I will go to the EXPO! You’ve been there? No, we go there now. Okay, Bon voyage! Thank you! We meet different people on our way This man was an olympia participator Who carried the olympic fire for Kazakhstan Ingenious The wind changed the direction No, actually the road made a turn So the wind is blowing from the side/from the front now Could be hard Over there You can slightly see the mountains Of the Burabay national park We want to go there today. There are some lakes etc. Chikalovo Todays first stage done! We did 32km until now Nice old Lada We do here some grocery shopping now Another one! A store, perfect! Oh, isn’t this a grocery store? No! And where can i find one? Over there, “Pearl”. Thanks! That wasn’t a grocery store Hello, do you have eggplant paste? Or with zucchini? Yes we have something like this… Found it! How much? 290 Tenge It’s very windy. We are fighting! 5km until Lunch! We have bread Baked beans 2 Pears And this is… Ikra Thats a paste made out of Zucchini, carrots, tomatoes, onions And herbs. Pretty delicious! So this is the Ikra And in Russia there is another fastening No screw-cap or a normal cans closure with a nipple This is just pressed on top In Russia there is a special tool to open it Also the pocketknifes in Russia come with this tool In Germany and other countries it’s just this one It also works but it’s more difficult You have to… Wait, that was the wrong one of course! This is the can opener We need the bottle opener! And you can use it as a lever and go all around I’m trying to upload a pic to Instagram with bad Internet Let’s see if it works It’s loading more or less I think we move on and it will load on the way Sunprotection! A small change of direction It’s going to the left That means more wind from the back At least for a short time Because it will be going to the right again It’s a good break Next change of direction Wind is coming from the side again Over there you see the mountains coming closer About 50km to go! The wind is very strong Its very exhausting For both of us Physical but also mental Because you are just fighting against the wind And you can’t see it You are just feeling it And you know… That it could blew from the other direction And bring us in half the time To our Campingspot That’s kind of demotivating To fight against the wind But we get rewarded With absolute wilderness The last two hours or so Maybe one car came along We are alone In the width of the steppe Thats pretty awesome! The Road is getting bad and worse The wind is coming more from the front But we are getting closer! And we don’t give up! We’ve done 63km 4km left Now it’s 4PM 40! 40km of course! We make a little detour to go to the village over there “Nauryzbai” We check if we can get something to drink They have water from a well Thanks Thats very good! We wanted to buy a juice or something like that But this is icecold water from the well Super awesome! Menu of the day! Water with sugar We didn’t got juice but icecold water We are mixing it with brown sugar And enjoy! Very good! It’s 7PM We are still on the road That’s unusual But we want to camp in the nature park today And generally in Kazakhstan we have to cycle a lot Because we just have 30 days here It’s a total of 2500km 2500km divided by 30 … And we want to stay some days in Astana And visit my relatives in Almaty Because of that we have to cycle a lot in Kazakhstan! Because of that, yesterday 100km Today again 100km Today with much wind It’s very exhausting But that’s how it is today And today you joined us so we show it to you! Don’t know if you can see it. There are meerkats Maybe a bit And that’s a cyclist. Don’t know if you can see it either! 12km to go! Over there is the city of Burabay After which the national park is named And just next to it is the lake where we want to go We almost can see it The last 12km now! Now you really can see the mountains We first saw it about 75km ago from the other side Slightly… Now we are here! Last 2km to the lake Awesome that we made it – awesome! Super nice! Expo 2017 is in Astana in Kazakhstan Thats the next stop we’ll make AWESOME! It’s just awesome! We made it! It’s worth the effort! We got a big reward! For all the efforts Most of the time against the wind Bad paved roads or gravel roads And then 107km I think it’s 8PM now Or? Yeah, close to 8PM So 12 hours ago we left our tent! Yeah, thats how a 12 hour day can look like! But, this is freedom! That is what we love Awesome! Now we’ll have a cold beer Two beer which we got yesterday from the policemen I think i’ve told you in the morning. We cool them now Now we make dinner with you! Exactly We start to cook now I’m assembling the campingstove now No, i think we want to sleep here, or?
