In a word ? “Unforgettable”. It is in this term that Arlette described her experience at Beijing Express in the columns of Var-Midi. During the first stage in Kyrgyzstan, the mother was literally conquered by the landscape. Difficult for his daughter to say otherwise. “Discovering the landscape, I was blown away! We were amazed. The landscapes are sublime, all along the route. It’s really worth the detour.”
If the panorama remains forever etched in their memory, the same goes for their meetings with the locals. “That was the most moving thing.admits Caroline. We met people who had nothing, but who gave us everything they could.” Faced with so much generosity and kindness on the part of their hosts, Arlette got it “a great life lesson”. “We are very generous by nature, but this adventure showed us that we had to give without counting”. Memories that impose themselves as a beautiful revenge on life.
