Before talking about 2018, we really gotta tell you something: When you launch an App, nobody tells you how to do it, what to expect and where to pay special attention.

THE WEISSBORN STORY EPISODE 6 - NEW YEAR IN NEPAL

Published by RISER at December 21, 2017 in Articles
Darkness. My hotel room in India on the border with Nepal. No window. Bleary-eyed, I glance out the door and walk towards the balcony. Outside the fog is still thick.

The dried-up river bed blurs in front of my burning eyes. Drops of sweat tickle on the scalp under my motocross helmet. Even the Gore-Tex membrane seems to have long since given up its mission of allowing water vapour to pass through to the outside of my riding suit. In the sauna, now would be the time to pour water onto the rocks.

Well, this morning starts early as usual, as my military service gave me one of the best and worst traits in the world, not being able to sleep well.

Which is where I want to watch the sunrise. Getting there at 5 o’clock, as bright orange glow starts to hit the Horizon...

The morning sunshine at Loch Ken wakes me up on Friday the 18th of August and reminds me to pack up my tent and everything that belongs to it. My breakfast is quick and sufficient and I’m off to the next ferry from Scotland to Northern Ireland. I buy the ticket for the short crossing directly on the spot. If you are alone or in pairs you can be so spontaneous...
