It involves cycling from the North Sea towards the East.
First from my hometown Ede, to the North Sea and back in one day. This will be a little over 200 km.
Than in order of travelling;
I do need visa for: Russia, Kazakhstan and China
Visa requirements will be different every year or season.
For Russia and Kazakhstan I (now) can have 30 days visa, probably enough for my route through these countries.
For China I don't know yet what the requirements will be at the time of my departure.
In Poland I will visit the concentration camp Auschwitz.
In Japan I want to cycle or travel at least 4 weeks.
After I will have shipped or sold the Quest and end my travelling in Japan, I will go back to Shanghai by ferry.
Here I will take the train to Beijing, where I plan to take the Trans Siberian Express to Moscow.
Then I will travel by train, again, back to The Netherlands, the end of my big journey for several years.
A few problems have to be solved before I leave.
- The transport of my Quest back to The Netherlands by ship (A wooden crate for the Quest and large container to transport it in one of those large container ships)
- Or if I decide to sell the Quest, I must have a buyer or a guaranty of somebody buying my Quest before I leave home.
- Visa requirements can be a (big) problem so if I can't deal with those problems I have to cancel Plan A.
I have no idea how many kilometers this trip will be. (another blog entry again some day!)
Last trip I traveled around / about 80 km a day. In the coming years I will find out how many km's will be realistic. Then I can plan the route before I leave.
Next entry I will explain plan B
