married, 2 kids airline staff, love medieval history I just finished the long silk road from Lyon to Karakorum (Mongolia) by mean of surface transportation; took me last 9 years to achieve it, step by step, kilometer after kilometer, through Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, back to Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrghyszstan and China. This was done to celebrate the great middle age traveler, Jean de Plan Carpin, who left Lyon in 1245, to reach Karakorum by foot, 36 years before Marco Polo started.
