For almost three years Radio Prague has been following the adventures of a brave young Czech couple, Michal Jon and Lucie Kovarikova, who set off to conquer the world on their bicycles. We followed their travels around Asia, Australia and even the Antarctic. We last spoke to the couple after they finished the South American part of their tour and were resting in California before they rode north to Canada, Alaska and through the whole of Canada to New York City.
Two years ago, a brave young Czech couple, Michal Jon and Lucie Kovarikova, set off to conquer the world on their bicycles. First they headed north to Scandinavia. Then they crossed Russia, rode through Mongolia, China, South Korea and Japan and then took a flight to Australia. A year ago, Radio Prague spoke to them during their stopover in New Zealand. This time, Pavla Horakova caught up with Michal and Lucie in Los Angeles, California. She first asked Michal to recount the journey from Australia to California. California.
A year ago we reported on a brave young Czech couple who decided to conquer the world on their bicycles. Lucie Kovarikova and Michal Jon told their bosses they were taking a three-year holiday, packed their bags, got on their bikes and set off on May 1st last year. First they headed north, to Germany and via Denmark they carried on to Greenland and then they cycled through Scandinavia. In Russia they said good-bye to Europe, rode through Mongolia, China, South Korea and Japan and then took a flight to Australia and made a short stopover in Tasmania.
