With their experience, the couple shared a few tips when travelling like they do.
“Minimalism is the best policy. But our bike is a bit overloaded because we are packed for two and people. When we travel across the world, the climate can vary and we have to be ready for all situations,” they said.
As for the food, Marta said that they should be fast and easy.
“Noodles or oats. Anything that can be prepared in hot water,” noted Lukas, adding that they explore street food.
“We carry four to five liters of water daily,” said Marta.
“Food is available everywhere and we like to try something new. So where we are, we connect with the local people and ask what we must try from the local cuisine.”
“Maybe the time is a bit harder now but we will overcome it and soon it will be better,” they concluded.
“Initially we were travelling just in Europe. But in 2017, when we started our journey during our three week vacation, it was a full travel to Asia from Poland to the Chinese border through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and then we came back. In 21 days we did about 15,000 km. That was about 800 km a day. When we returned home, we decided if we want to travel extensively we must make another plan and maybe quit the regular job,” said Marta.
Within three months they were out on the bike heading to explore the Americas.
“The idea was to go to South America and then North America. But we did it quite fast and we still had the savings. This is when the idea came to go to Africa,” said Lukas.
This is the third part of their journey – the intention to head to Australia.
“Lukas wants to travel the whole world in this very bike,” Marta said.
Their stop over in Oman has definitely been memorable.
“There are so many beautiful spots in Oman to camp especially near the beach,” the couple said.
The special moment for the both of them was when they completed the 200,000 km drive on Salalah Beach on their BMW bike.
“For many of our friends in Poland [who have seen our photos and updates] Oman is in their bucket list now. Oman tops the list. It has a varied nature. It is also when you are having conversations with the locals that you realize how open the people of Oman are. They want to help you with everything,” they shared.
When Lukas was asked if he was picking any Arabic words, he replied “Karrak.
“Everyone uses ‘InshaAllah’ and ‘Shukran’. The hospitality is tremendous,” he added.
