Ten years after our first bicycle tour we set out again: From August 1st 2018 to May 31st 2019 we cycled from Germany to Vietnam.
We crossed the Bosporus, went through Turkey and Iran and struggled through Central Asia and China during winter. In early April we finally reached the Vietnamese border.
We had a few breakdowns,health problems, were mistaken for terrorists and had to use a wooden outhouse at -30°C (-20°F) located in over 3,000 m (10,000 ft) above sea level. But in the end we arrived in Saigon in one piece.
We documented our journey with a camera. While still being on the road, Waldemar Schleicher watched the raw footage and produced the episodes of our weekly series Manpower Express - To Vietnam Along the Silk Road. Thus 44 episodes were made, that go along with us on our adventure from start to finish.
