One of the questions I am always interested in, but often gets too little attention next to the where and how of travel, is why are you (planning on) traveling here? Do you have a peculiar fascination? Did it just happen to be on the way? Do you live here? Before we all get bogged down in visa talk, I'd be happy to hear your thoughts on this one too.
Cheers (and welcome once again),
I am 63 years old and retired. My wish is to travel by bike over a long distance. Last year I read a story about two Dutch girls who cycled from the Netherlands to China. At that moment they where in Italy. I was very excited about the courage of them. So I started to make my own cycle-plan.
I never had the opportunity to make such a long trip. Now because I am retired and also with the support of my wife I made this dicision. I must given my age no longer wait, I think.
So now I am collect the necessary visa.
I hope to get the answers as soon as possible.
