An unsupported, solo cycling expedition

through Asia and the Middle East, 

inspired by the ancient silk roads

Anne Bordeaux, flippedHello and welcome to this site!

My name is Anne – 34-year old athlete / blogger / scientist from Berlin, Germany. This site is about my biggest travel adventure so far: a solo cycling expedition, inspired by the ancient silk roads. So far, the journey has led me through Asia and the Middle East – but who knows, which part of this beautiful planet I will be exploring next?
I love to share my experiences from the road with you, both in writing and with my photography. You can find all of my travel reports here on my blog. I would be delighted if you joined me virtually for this adventure!

Postcards from the Saddle

How about sending some inspiration to your friends and family? Now is your chance – a little selection of my best photographs from the saddle went into print as postcards! Five photos is not enough to do justice to the wonderful landscapes and great people of Asia and the Middle East. Still, I hope they’ll bring the same joy to you as they did to me  when I first laid my eyes on these extraordinary places.

Take a look at the postcards here!
PS: pssst… if you ordered a photo calendar this year, they ship for free 🙂

Photo calendar 2018

Surprise! Another year ahead, another beautiful photo calendar is in print for you.
I am very excited to announce that my new photo calendar 2018 is out! Some lucky ones could already get their hands on a calendar at the Frankfurt book fair. For all the others: I’d be very happy to take your orders! The concept is the same as last year, but with new, beautiful photos that I have not published elsewhere yet.

The calendar follows my journey with 13 new photos from the 13 countries that I explored on my solo cycling expedition through Asia and the Middle East. Thousands of kilometers, more than a year in the saddle. Enjoy stunning photography far off the beaten track, from the awe-inspiring Karakorum in Pakistan to the endless steppe of Mongolia. Find out more about the calendar and have a look at the photos here. Ignite your wanderlust!
