Synopsis

The Himalayas… the dream inside the dream, and a myth turned into reality for Delphine and Damien! 1.5 year after living France, they ride across forbidden Tibet, the highest country in the world, on their tandem bike, for 2 month and a half, and make a break along the way in Lhassa to capture the Tibetan folk’s unmovable faith under Chinese occupation. Luckily enough, the Chinese authorities decide not to stop them. They then reach Nepal and India, where they experience the hardest cultural gap they’ve ever known. Exhausted but marvelling at India’s incredible life, they finally make it back home through the Old Continent: Turkey, Bulgaria, Bosnia… meeting fascinating people on the way.

And then, they land in Asia: what a shock ! Thailand, first, where they’ll both laugh and cry at their ignorance of the local language, and then Lao and its red moutains, before Vietnam, the ant-hill of the Asian peninsula, where locals and expats alike will introduce the French couple to their country. Travelling across Cambodia, the tandem reach Thailand again, where decision is made to try and ride across the Himalayas and Tibet before winter…
