After 10 month “On the Road” we finally finished the second stage on our motorcycle world trip!

The last months we spend travelling back and forth through trough Southeast Asia and we really enjoyed the time here! We enjoyed relaxed times on the beaches in Thailand, visited the famous temples from Angkor Wat in Cambodia, traveled through the very laid back Laos, enjoyed the smooth roads in Malaysia, spent two days in Singapore (unfortunately without the bikes, too expensive to go to Singapore with it… ) and had an absolutely adventurous time travelling trough Indonesia and Timor-Leste.

But now it´s time to say goodbye to Southeast Asia. After 8 days cleaning our bikes and our equipment with the tooth brush (!!) (thank´s to the Australian quarantine requirements) they are finally in the container!

Hey Guys!

Some of you asked us if we can keep you up to date from every now and then and so, here we are with our first report, currently from a cattle- and cotton farm west of Goondiwindi in the Southwestern Outback of Queensland.

If you are wondering what we are doing here in this freezing cold place (yes, we definitely underestimated the temperatures during the winter time here… *brrrrrr* ), we are working and working and working – actually about 12 to 16 hours a day, 7 days a week and this for the next 3 month to refill our travel fund!

You don’t believe us? Hera is the photographic evidence!

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...5143396&type=1

We´ll continue travelling in the End of September, heading up to Cairns and start our trip down the East coast from there in the Beginning of October!

And you can believe us, we are REALLY looking forward to be on the road again!

Cheers from the “labor camp”

Bea & Helle

Hello all together!

Some of you may remember us, but some probably will never have heard from us before… unfortunately, our last update in this blog is quite a while ago, too…

So we thought that the time has home to send a sign of live. Yes, we are still alive and yes, we are still “on the road”. And after nearly 2 years of traveling around the world, luckily there is still no end in sight!

A couple of days ago our motorcycles and we arrived back from „the island“, in our case, we shipped back from beautiful Tasmania to the Australian main land. At the moment we are sitting in Melbourne, organizing some paperwork and stuff like that before we´ll hit the road again in the beginning of next week. Our next destination? Westwards!

In the last almost 2 years since we are on our motorcycle travel around the world, a lot has happened! We rode our bikes through Eastern Europe, East Asia and Southeast Asia. Now we are traveling through Down Under where we´ll stay until the end of this year and then… heading for new shores!

If you have become interested, then please visit our web page www.timetoride.de or our Facebook page www.facebook.com/pages/Time-to-ride/115955945143396. There you can find lots of travel reports, pictures, videos and many interesting things more!
And only recently we have released our brand new “Twitter”-Account https://twitter.com/Time_to_Ride where we will keep you informed about our fantastic journey as well!

Cheers from rainy Melbourne
Bea & Helle

Bye, bye Australia!

As our time in Australia is nearly over, we wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to all Australian bikers!


Thank you for your great tips and advices and thank you for all your kind offers to give us a roof over our head for a couple of days. We so really, really appreciate this!

Unfortunately it was impossible for us to meet all of you as Australia is a huge country and after 1 ˝ years of traveling, we still haven´t seen all of it yet.

(That´s actually a really good reason to come back some day! )

We are in Brisbane right now where we´ll celebrate Christmas before we fly over to Auckland in a couple of days.
Our bikes are at the port already, waiting for their ship to New Zealand.
If everything goes well we´ll be back on the road in NZ at the beginning of January where another part of our journey begins.

If you want to follow our travel – we have still plenty of countries left to go - please visit our web page www.TimetoRide.de which is now available in English as well as in German and other languages.
And also have a look at our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Time-...15955945143396 for the latest pictures and news.

Once again, thank you for your great support while visiting your beautiful country!



Cheers
Bea & Helle

Dear family, friends and “follower”,

even if we have absolutely no Christmas feeling – maybe it´s because its 30 degree hot here in Australia and the sun is burning from the sky – we want to use the opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas!

Enjoy the coming days with your loved ones!



Yours
Bea & Helle

Hello everybody!

Our new travel report „Next turning two days ahead!” is about the unbelievable message on our navi that our next turn will be in 576 km.
Furthermore we are struggling with the extreme heat in the Australian Outback and Bea lost her snack to a sneaky bird.

Click here to find out what exactly was going on:
http://www.timetoride.de/2013/12/27/australien-22-nächste-abbiegung-zwei-tage-voraus/

Furthermore we have a new photo album with a selection of our shots from our travel report “The Rock” online on our Facebook page.

In our new travel blog "contact difficulties" it´s all about Bea´s "Dicke Rosi" being a bit stubborn and our unexpected meet up with Santa Clause and his followers.
If you want to know more about what happened, just click here: http://www.timetoride.de/2014/01/08/...hwierigkeiten/




After a long 14 day separation from our bikes it was finally time for our reunion.
Thanks to the unbelievable helpful staff from the biosecurity and the Auckland port security we´ve been able to get our bikes back just before the weekend.
Yeha!!!




It´s been our first day on the road and New Zealand showed its best sides already.
Wonderful summer weather, fantastic winding gravel road through secluded landscapes and a breathtaking view over the coast.
That definitely makes the heart of every motorcycle traveler beat faster!

Hey Guys!

In our new travel report „temporary farewell” it´s all about preparing our faithful travel companions for their “great journey”.

But despite of all the shipping stress we found the time to have a closer look around the Gold Coast and Brisbane and we experienced a fantastic Christmas day including gift giving and feast! :-)

Check the travel report for more details:

G´day!

As we left Australia just recently after 1 ˝ years it´s time to publish a (quite extensive) conclusion about this (quite big) country. We start with our very personal conclusion about Australia and give you some practical and helpful tips and tricks. Furthermore we listed all our required wearing parts, equipment defects and much more. We also give you all details about shipping us and our motorcycles from Australia to New Zealand.

http://www.timetoride.de/l%C3%A4nder...zit-australien

Furthermore we have a couple of new travel reports about New Zealand:

In our first travel report „Release on bail“ it´s all about our first experiences and impressions in New Zealand and our “battle” with the New Zealand authorities and against the time to get our two travel companions free.
If we made it?
You will find out here!

http://www.timetoride.de/2014/01/26/...to-new-zealand



In our second travel report „The forgotten World!“ we´ll report about our first kilometers on New Zealand´s roads which turned out to be an absolute motorcycle highlight already. Among other things we´ll tell you about our exciting trip along the “Forgotten World Highway” to the rebellious republic of “Whangamomona” where we even got an own entry stamp into our passport!
http://www.timetoride.de/2014/02/17/...ergessene-welt



And our new travel report „The proposal“ is now online, too. Who got a proposal from whom, why we discovered parts of the North Island in a foursome and many more you can find out in our travel diaries.

http://www.timetoride.de/2014/02/23/...-heiratsantrag

Enjoy our stories! :-)

As the name suggests, our new travel report „Upside Down“ is about things (or motorcycles?) which stand overhead.
Furthermore we are visiting the place with the longest name on earth and we make a detour to the most southern point of the North Island of New Zealand, where we have quite close contact to some fur seals.

Today we have 2 new travel reports up our sleeve:

On the one hand in our new travel report „Somewhere over the rainbow“ it´s all about… a rainbow?
No, not really.
But we´re exploring the Rainbow Road, a well known Offroad track through the stunning untouched nature of New Zealand´s South Island.
Furthermore we´re exploring Christchurch together with the “German motorcycle gang”.

Sounds interesting?


Find out more:

(Please use the language select button on the right hand side of the page!)




And on the other hand in our new travel report „The mountain is calling!” it´s all about mountains. Well, almost everything.
We have been introduced into the Maori tradition as well and tried delicious Hāngi. What, you don´t know what Hāngi is? Then read our travel report and find it out! :-)

In our new travel report „In the land of the long gray cloud“ we are exploring the solitary vastness of the South Island.

Furthermore we are visiting the steepest road in the world as well as the deepest lake in Oceania.

Well, and as the title of the travel report suggests, we are able to enjoy the pleasure of the typical New Zealand weather once again. ;-)
