The plan is to not have a plan. True to this motto, Ramona and Herbert Schwarz decided in November 2009 to explore countries in Asia previously unfamiliar to them. With a BMW F 800 GS and a BMW R 1200 GS Adventure, the trip first takes them to the north of Thailand and is then a long circular tour through Laos and Cambodia.
The legs of the journey are planned on a day-to-day basis and the two are therefore guided by the advice and the recommendations of local people. The tour, totalling 5,789 kilometres, runs down the Mekong through exotic villages and mysterious jungles, past bizarre mountain formations and powerful waterfalls as well as a pass road nearly 1,000 kilometres long, with one curve after another. This film was shot by Ramona and Herbert themselves.
The two deliberately decided to ride without a support team, so that the journey would not be dominated by the filming.
This has resulted in impressive scenes the likes of which can only arise on a journey and cannot be scripted. Come with us to colourful markets, mystical ruins in the jungle and people from completely different cultures. See how Cambodia still has to struggle with land mines years after the war, and how you can get lost on a journey despite the most up-to-date equipment. The vivid impressions are at the forefront at all times; but there are also plenty of riding scenes during this absorbing motorbike journey.
