The Missing Link
We, Eric Schuijt and Carla van Tatenhove, two experienced world cyclists. On this channel of Eric’s shop De Vakantiefietser (The Holiday biker) you can find small documentaries about some of our bicycle travels to far away countries.
In November and December 2014 we cycled ‘The Missing Link’.
When Eric was on his world trip in '90 and '91 he was not allowed to cross the land borders of Myanmar. And that always hurt…
All world cyclists who cycled to Southeast Asia had to skip Myanmar because you could not cross the border between India and Myanmar and Myanmar and Thailand. You could only fly in and out.
But, although Myanmarese embassies will give you no advise on crossing the India/Myanmar border, it is now possible to cross the land borders from India into Myanmar with a special permit. For the border Myanmar/Thailand you do not need special permission.
We know because we have done it!
