Trevor and Audrey Stafford say a highlight was seeing Mt Everest on a clear day.
Motorbikes have always been a key part of Trevor and Audrey Stafford’s relationship.
Trevor showed Audrey his bike the second day they met, then on their honeymoon they drove a motorbike around Europe.
So it was only fitting that the pair celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary with an 84-day ride across Europe and Asia.
The pair arrived in London on their anniversary – March 26 – and spent a month sorting out what was to come, Trevor said.
“We travelled to 17 countries so the plan was to find a motorbike, to get all the visas. Insurance was a headache,” he said.
They left London on April 21 and started their journey which would culminate in Beijing, China 84 days later.
