This trip was always intended to be a journey, joining the dots. Cycling from places I have been before, to places I've never been. Revisiting special places, and finding new special places. Seeing for myself what others have talked about, places that previously I've only seen from 30,000 feet, places I've read about, or dreamed of visiting. The initial plan involved visiting 64 countries over four years and eight months. Ju said it was too long. Cut it in half. So, there I was, on a 900 day, 50,000km, adventure, joining the dots in 41 countries.
