Cycling Cambodia - A Land of Contrasts! // A Bike Touring Short Film // Part 36 - Cambodia

Cambodia really is a land of contrasts, and therefore cycling through this fascinating country was actually a little bit different to what we had expected. Apart from visiting Cambodia's tourist highlights, we feel like we also got to see parts that not many foreigners get to experience. Something that once again made us realize just how special our way of traveling is. What really stuck with us from our time in Cambodia, is how incredibly friendly the Khmer people we encountered were, which we think is especially remarkable given the extremely tragic recent history of the country. While we only briefly touch on the subject in our film (and only give a very simplistic overview of the events of the Cambodian Genocide), we encourage you to read a bit more about it, in order to even begin to understand the atrocities and hardships the people of Cambodia had to endure.

Cycling to 4,800 m Altitude // A Bike Touring Short Film // Part 29 - Ecuador (continued)

The night before we attempted to cycled up to the refuge of Chimborazo at 4,800 m.a.s.l., we camped at 4,200 m, on a wide open, high-altitude plain. We found some shelter from the relentless wind behind a little hill, with a spectacular view of the volcano! Chimborazo, the highest mountain in the world (when measured from the Earth’s core) at 6,263 m, is an incredible sight to behold! ...and we were lucky enough to experience it in good weather. When we had previously cycled at altitudes between 3,000 and 4,000 meters, we had never really experienced any strong symptoms of altitude sickness, or noticed a significant reduction in our fitness. But this time, starting at around 4,400 m, we could really feel our lungs and muscles being starved of oxygen. It felt like with literally every meter more, we had less and less power, until at some point we weren't sure anymore, if we could make it...
