Th-island hopping - cycles in SW Thailand

Another instantly different as you cross the border experience. On our ferry there was a monk and a ladyboy. On land, the forests looked wilder, not the regular rows of plantation palms we had seen for much of Malaysia. 1,596 more words

Sliding doors: Cycling home from Bangkok

The other day we saw the sea for the last time in a long time. This will be the third major land crossing of the trip, and the biggest by far, after Netherlands to Italy (1 month) and Boston to Anacortes (3 months). 763 more words

Cycling North in Malaysia TrulyAsia

Riding North through Malaysia we didn’t have much of a plan other than to stay near the coast and to go to some islands. Penang and Langkawi are the well known Malaysian islands on this coast but our first island stop was Pulau Pangkor, described as “where Malaysians go on holiday at the weekend”, so on a Wednesday we thought this might be a good bet for some quiet beaches. 1,997 more words

Exploring the Mer de Glace Glacier

On our second full day in Chamonix, Caroline and I had a little adventure out to Mer de Glace. And by adventure, I mean we basically pissed ourselves in the Alps, and if that sentence doesn’t get you to read the rest of this article, I don’t know what will. 676 more words
