About the blog:
I am writing this blog as a diary for myself, my family and my friends for my cycling trips. It is my hope that other cyclists will be able to use some parts of the diary when planning their rides in Southeast Asia or NZ (as I have used other sites when I planned my trip).

Inspiration:

I got the inspiration from two places especially:

  1. Mr. Pumpy’s homepage (a keen cyclist of SE Asia, USAmerican of nationality, I think) http://www.pumpy.net (this is a fun read, even though you are not going anywhere).
  2. The Lonely Planet book ‘Cycling Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia’ (only a 1. Edition is available and this is from 2001!).
  3. Travelling Two: http://travellingtwo.com/. They have been everywhere on bicycles.

You might say that taking the same rides as others are not that adventurous and you would be absolutely right 🙂 I am not the explorer type, more like the ‘safe ride’ type i.e. if it works then it is worth copying, if it doesn’t, then I am able to forego that ride.

About me:
I needed a brake from work and decided that biking was the way to go.

    Takker 🙂 Jeg bruger bloggen som en dagbog, og forventer ikke at folk læser alt (den er også lidt for min egen skyld, sådan til senere brug)

    Hej John!

    Det kan godt være, bloggen også er for din egen skyld, men det er nu meget spændende at følge med i det liv som opdagelsesrejsende. Især når det højeste niveau af opdagelsesrejse jeg begiver mig ud i er at navigere ned til kiosken uden GPS.

    Du må ha’ en (fortsat) fantastisk tur, og jeg glæder mig meget til at læse og se mere.

    Trane 🙂

      Trane: Takker 🙂 Jeg synes det er lidt sjovt at opdatere bloggen faktisk. + Når man rejser er der altid aftenerne, og de kan være lange hvis man ikke har noget fornuftigt at give sig til….

    Tog du ikke LBA2 med 😉
