I felt so lucky to have had the opportunity to cycle Sri Lanka, Kashmir, Nepal and Ladakh in 2013. My initial planning was to extend that journey East towards Laos and Vietnam. It was quite a tall order and unless able to commit to more than a year on the road, is not something undertaken so easily. This year I have at least still managed to stretch my legs and circle Morocco. That was pretty amazing and loved the journey through the High Atlas. The intention was to visit Norway in the Autumn too. But built a cycle workshop and office studio instead.
With the new year looming and a return to political stability in SE Asia I hope, all going well, to resume my journey. My attention is drawn to Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar. An old friend from Oz will be joining me In North Vietnam and has, for his first cycle tour overseas, been planning the route well in advance. With a little luck another friend in the UK will join us. Rich, Steve and Paul: ‘The Three Amigos’ will cycle from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City in the South.
