I found an internet kiosk near the edge of the Nullabor. There is a keyboard and screen like normal and its all mounted in a box. Inside the box are some workings and a man all scrunched up with a screen that shows him what I’m writing. He jots it all down and when I’m… Continue reading QUICK!
Oh I was going to write a nice long blog about what a good day I have had in Perth. Its been so good but quite busy and tiring! I will therefore go to sleep and maybe write a bitmore about it on the phone and upload it later on. I would like to thank… Continue reading Perth Day
Well, Bangkok seems nice. I have managed to walk at least as far as the nearby Hilton everyday, eat some macaroni cheese and then walk back to where I’m staying. I have been instructed by the medical support team not to go anywhere until I can eat the required 6000 + calories over the course… Continue reading Holed up, wait a minute.
Unfortunately I can’t think about much of my time in India without feeling a little bit queasy. I wanted to do it as quickly as possible and I think I did a pretty good pace, even with the illness day, but it didn’t leave much time for reflection.

Santos should be pleased! Since about Ukraine people (and I mean men, women haven’t really figures much yet) have been more interested in my bike than me. The belt drive is a big crowd draw. Here are some men standing around the TravelMaster, talking.

I told them the giant flag was too much. The stickers soon fell off in the wind and heat. I wouldn’t vote for this man;… Continue reading Coopted
Bike being packed (for free) in Tehran airport I have been writing this blog on my phone and I’m now uploading it from Amritsar, India. 29th April. I’m at the Turkey/Iran border. There is a bit of confusion regarding my nationality because the only word they are recognising on the passport is “Ireland” as in… Continue reading The last few days – a long one
People have been asking me about my routine and also about food. Here is the lowdown from my end. I didn’t really have a routine at the start and some days it still feels like I am catching myself up. If the terrain was the same every day, then I could have a very strict… Continue reading Answering some Q’s.
5th May Had a good rest day in Amritsar. Did all my washing, cleaned out the panniers, aired the sleeping bag (much needed), reworked the route (waiting to hear from Guinness) and spent 5 hours emailing and computer stuff. Ate 4 large meals. This is no travel guide but I can recommend the Grand Hotel… Continue reading India
