Welcome to Freewheeling across the Himalayas

Le voyage est un retour vers l'essentiel (proverbe tibetain)


My name is Celine Soulard and on July 2010 I will embark on a 7 month cycling journey from Tajikistan to Nepal. This adventure will take me to some of the most challenging and beautiful roads in the world. I am also undertaking this journey to raise funds for the Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation in support of the Ladakh Project (Health inc). I encourage you to subscribe to my blog to follow me in this great adventure. I will share with you in this blog stories and photos on a regular basis and hope to inspire you to contribute to the Ladakh Project.

On my way to the "forbidden" land...

Hi all,

Kargush Pass (photo: Pierre Payet-Burin)
While in Kashgar I  "slaved" for many hours in front of my notebook to improve the Blog layout, sort out photos and post a few more entries. I hope you will enjoy them. I have also inserted pictures in the earlier posts (Tajikistan and Afghanistan).

New Posts
  • Get me out of here!
  • "Bonjour la police" or "welcome" to China 
  • Short visit to Kyrgyzstan
 Updated posts(photos added)
  • Pamir Highway - my cycling heaven
  • Brinji, Naan and chai (rice, bread and tea) – An Afghan adventure

From now on I will not send the entire blog text and photos via email, but will send a quick note to let you know when I have updated the blog, this way you can go directly to the blog and have a look.

I have also uploaded all my photos to Flickr so it's easier to navigate through them, and also there is a link at the end of each posting which will allow you to go from the blog to Flickr.


We are finally leaving on Monday for the "forbidden land" and I don't know when I will have Internet access next. Inotherwords, "no news is good news" for the next couple of months. If we get turned back then I will have to investigate other route options and let you know how I will pursue my route to Nepal.

Happy on my bike,
Celine and Ladybug from Kashgar, China
