Into the Desert

I'm sitting on the top of the boat writing this, watching the Kazakh flag waving in the wind as Aktau grows larger on the horizon. After a long wait for the boat and a visa I'm finally going to be stepping into the 16th country of my trip, and consequently the desert.  We left Tbilisi... Continue Reading →


Adventures In Georgia 

In a few days I'll be leaving Georgia and heading into Azerbaijan to catch a ferry across the Caspian Sea. Georgia has been absolutely incredible, every other day a real adventure.  The first thing I wanted to do after 1000km of flat coastal riding was head into the mountains. I had heard a lot about...

New Country, (Mostly) New Bike

So I've hit my 14th country, Georgia. It doesn't feel like I was in Turkey a month or that I travelled over 2000km whilst I was there. Turkey felt like such a huge country whenever I checked my progress on the map but now it seems to have flown by. When I reached the coast... Continue Reading →

First steps into Asia

I'd spent around six months in Bulgaria and I was sad to leave but my last few days were some of the best. I've got a new mapping app on my phone and before I got used to the settings it was in "Adventure" mode. The roads it was taking me down weren't roads, barely... Continue Reading →

Back on the Road (ish) 

Winter is over! At least it was a week ago, it snowed yesterday but that's not the point. The blossom is out, the birds are singing and it's green everywhere.  I spent around four months working in Bobby's bar in Borovets, a ski resort in Bulgaria. I went to escape the cold but although I... Continue Reading →

The Last Adventure of the Year

It's really winter now. As I'm writing it's snowing and -2°C so I'm glad that I'm sitting inside and not shivering out in the wilds somewhere.  I finished off my placement in the South of Bulgaria and headed towards Greece. It was a long uphill to the mountain pass that acts as a border. When... Continue Reading →

Waiting Out Winter 

With the seasons changing and the temperature dropping it's getting less desirable to be sleeping outside at night, shivering under a tarp. The pacing of this adventure is changing now and that's taking a bit of getting used to. Rather than being on the move everyday I'm staying stationary with brief moments of travel spliced...

Final part of the Danube

It's been nearly four days since I've found somewhere with WiFi so I thought that now would be a good time to get round to updating the blog. At the moment I'm in Romania and some lovely guys at a petrol station are giving me coffee, feeding me, letting me use their electricity, washing my... Continue Reading →

Back on the Road 

After nearly a month in Slovakia I've finally got back on the bike. After saying goodbye to Andrej and Anna I set off towards Bratislava to try to sell some carvings. Unfortunately as soon as I put some stuff down some police came and moved me on. There were a lot of police around and... Continue Reading →
