Thanks for joining me!
Now that I have some followers (four family members and counting..), I suppose I should start to add some content to the site! Just about one week to go until my ferry departs and I start the approximately four-month journey across Europe and Asia by bicycle; I should make it clear at this point, I have no idea what I am doing.
I know exactly when I’m going without knowing exactly where, and I know where I’m aiming to get to but not where I will end up! All being well, I should arrive in Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan, some time early in December – I will use this site to update you on the probability of that happening.
Why Bhutan I hear you ask? I haven’t yet come up with an answer to satisfy anyone else who has asked the same…a secret desire to show off geographic knowledge of some of the world’s more obscure countries? Maybe. But the allure of a country, nestled in the Himalayas, that sanctifies the environment for the benefit of it’s people, and most famously pioneered ‘Gross National Happiness’, was too great and I’ve always wanted to see the country. Perhaps the cycling is just my attempt at low-impact tourism..
