Epic Europe to Asia Tour: An Interview with Rolling Tales

After six years working in the UK, New Zealanders Emma and Justin were ripe for an adventure. In March 2012 they set off from London and headed east, not quite sure how long or how far they would pedal. Over six months in 2010 Emma and Justin cycled, much of Southern and Eastern Europe and eventually into Turkey, where they waited out the winter in Istanbul. When the weather warmed up again they continued pedaling east into Russia, Mongolia, China and finally South East Asia. The interview focused on some of the challenges the couple faced during their tour and tips and advice for others who want to go cycle touring.

Almost 4 years, 5 continents and more than 50,000 kilometers later, he’s still on the road. We met up with Julian in Thailand where he’s currently cycling with partner Ellie Beck.
