I think divine providence was at work when it guided us, pretty much as we started our trip in Munich, into one of its most prominent beer gardens, at Viktualienmarkt. I swear, I didn’t plan this. I didn’t even have a map of the city with me. To tell you the truth, I didn’t even know beer gardens existed at that point. Oh well. Here’s to soft landings!

Our apartment has been sublet, our workplaces notified of our departure, guidebooks purchased and perused, and the Internet scoured for all the relevant information. In less than a week me & my wife will find ourselves in Munich, starting out on our trip through the Silk Road, or at least the approximation of it that can be traversed with our Israeli passports. By train, bus, ferry, and the back of a mule if necessary, we intend to travel overland from Europe to China, passing through Turkey, the Kavkaz, the Caspian Sea and Central Asia. We are excited beyond words. It’s going to be an extraordinary half a year. We’ll miss you all!
We intend to blog throughout the trip, and upload photos whenever possible, so watch this space. We’ll also keep an updated map of our trip progress and current whereabouts here.
Adios! See y’all in September!
