It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of The Ring
…or if you don’t keep your wheels in my case!
On June 15th 2014 I will depart from Dunmore Head, Dingle, Co. Kerry – the westernmost point in Ireland – and ride my motorcycle solo through 20 countries and over 20,000 kilometers to Magadan in Russia.
One girl, two wheels, 20 countries and over 20,000 kilometers.
The planned route:
Ireland – UK – France – Germany – Poland – Czech Republic – Slovakia – Hungary – Bulgaria – Romania – Turkey – Georgia – Azerbaijan – Turkmenistan – Uzbekistan – Tajikistan – Kyrgyzstan – Kazakhstan - Mongolia – Russia
It will be hot, sandy, wet, muddy, cold and everything in between.
I can only imagine what kind of challenges I will face on the road but I am sure of one thing.
It will be an adventure of a lifetime.
