Where are we going?

We are going to cycle to India.

We have no fixed plan of what route we are going to take and we are not limiting ourselves exclusively to bicycles as our mode of transport. Ideally we will not take a flight, opting for train, bus or boat where needed.

Below we have come up with a very random route map to give you an idea of what our journey might look like. It is a wiggly line that will change due to our will, fate, geo-politics, weather, terrain and a zillion other factors.

It is 4,584 km from Bucharest to Tehran by this random, wiggly line.

The wiggly line crosses 8 countries from Romania, through Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbijan, to Iran. Our ultimate destination is India.

Apparently it will take 2 days, 15 hours and 58 minutes to drive…
