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 kilometres long.  Riding their bicycles & pedaling through Asia.  Olivier and 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 over all, they discover themselves.  Who are they?  What do they want?  What is their place in this world? Maybe, between the encounters, obstacles and the discovery, this daring journey made them reflex… Do we not all have a common “Asiemut”?
