There are so many choices in everyday life ! Everyone has their own journey, their own direction, their own azimuth. Olivier Higgins and Mélanie Carrier chose a journey, but most would call it a long adventure, approximately 8000 kilometres long. Riding their bicycles & pedaling through Asia.
Olivier & Mélanie traveled from Mongolia to Kolkata, at the mouth of the Ganges in India, passing through Xinjiang, the Taklamakan Desert, Tibet and Nepal. Along the way, they discover the world, but over all, they discover themselves. Who are they ? What do they want ? What is their place in this world ? Maybe, between the encounters, obstacles and the discovery, this daring journey made them reflex... Do we not all have a common "Asiemut" ?
"They" have chosen to renegotiate the "system". Reduce the global society of men to their humble community. To reinvent the structure and bonds between them. Focus on quality over quantity, to feed on the fruit of their labor, to rebuild a society of proximity, which respects nature.
