    Dear Max and Emily,
    I came across your website when I was researching a cycling trip to China and your trip looks absolutely amazing! Your blog has also been extremely helpful and very interesting.
    I am planning a similar trip and hopefully will follow the same route as you both did. If all goes to plan I should be ready to leave in years time, so I am still very much in the planning stages. I wondered if I could ask you for some advice on Visas?
    Was there any particular countries that it was tricky getting a visa for, and if so how would advise to go about it?
    What information did you give regarding where you are staying especially in China as I thought you needed to state the address of where you are staying?
    Lastly, do you have any other general advice that would be helpful whilst I am planning?
    Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, I would really appreciate any advice you could give. I hope you get the chance to have another amazing adventure soon.

    Kind regards,

    Hi! I came across your website while I’m researching for my cycling trip from Guang Zhou to Paris next year. It’s really helpful! I’m quite curious, why did you choose this route instead of on the north through Kazakhstan? Visa issue can be quite tricky if you have to travel through many borders in central Asia isn’t it?

      Yes visas are a pain but this way was more direct, plus we were very interested to see some of the Silk Road cities in Central Asia and the Pamir Highway. They definitely made up for the hassle! Good luck for your trip.
