I think my main concerns at the moment are: illness and injuries. The first two are elements that can seriously delay, and if it comes to worst, might end the journey entirely. Consequently, popping wheelies whilst rolling downhill in the Caucasus is not quite recommended. Originally I was afraid of cold, but based on our current kit list, that won’t be an issue!


I’m most afraid having something stolen from us. Not just the inconvenience, but more of the injustice of it. Though it would be inconvenient, for sure. Everything we carry is necessary for us (o-oookay, ALMOST everything), and most would be hard and expensive to replace. Especially the bikes. Iám terrified, that someone would stole our bikes!
