There are so many choices in everyday life! Everyone has their own journey, their own direction, their own azimuth. Olivier Higgins and Mélanie Carrier chose a journey, but most would call it a long adventure, approximately 8000 kilometers long. Riding their bicycles & pedaling through Asia, Olivier & Mélanie traveled from Mongolia to Kolkata, at the mouth of the Ganges in India, passing through Xinjiang, the Taklamakan Desert, Tibet, and Nepal. Along the way, they discover the world, but overall, they discover themselves. Who are they? What do they want? What is their place in this world? Maybe, between the encounters, obstacles, and discoveries, this daring journey will make them think about this… Don’t we all have a common “Asiemut”?
