It hardly seems possible that it was a year ago today when the team set off for the cycle ride to Kraków and onward to Shanghai and then Japan (and the USA for Keith).
Well it’s a year so since we set off on are little ride time for a bit of reflection. We have to mention CONVID 19, so much has changed since the out break, with even more since the outbreak of the race protest and the continuing refugee situation in our little corner of the world. Not going into to much detail, but let’s take all the positives from these recent and ongoing developments.
Our ride would not have been possible without the help and guidance from humans of all different creeds, colour and ethnic origins. If I can take one thing from the ride, it is that 99% of humans are decent people, we just need a reality check once in a while. The trip certainly changed my perspective smile; be happy, help others and “Nothing can go wrong”.
Stay safe, help others and look forward to the next big ride.
P. S This work malarkey will never catch on. I was born to tour.
It has been a year since we set off on our adventure of a lifetime. Since being back I don’t think there’s been many days I’ve not looked back on the trip as a whole or specific times during the journey.
The most memorable part being our time in the ‘stans, and the people we met there. I learnt a lot during the trip and although Its not the first time I have travelled, I feel like it gave me a much more authentic experience. And since being back I feel very fortunate for my life and the way that we live here. Appreciate and enjoy the little things!
