Yes traveling solo does have its distinct advantages, always makes things more of an Adventure and goes a whole lot farther with the locals rather than being in a posse. Being thought of as "crazy" is a good thing Good on you man

This is going to be one wild ride an epic before it's over. I've come up on a couple of saviors or two while in a pinch out in the sticks but never had me a Slovenian princess

I figured those big oilies would have wifi piped in over the whole platform
Must suck a little, at least the funds come quick.

Yes I totally agree about the solo traveling has its advantages…..

For me this trip was born out of visiting the people of Tajikistan and living with them and hoping to be treated like a real local and not a tourist and then it grew arms and legs and I decided I would try to stay with as many local people as I can in all the country’s I visited and learn from them all about life, how they live there life and I believe learning from them has made me a better persons.

This is real life with real people who are not caught up in the rate race, its back to basics which I feel the modem western society has forgotten, life is not about ipads, flash cars. Flash houses and Gucci cloths it’s about people, families and real nature real free beauty)))))))))))

This trip was never about off road adventures (however its full off them!!) and other sightseeing and so on’s it was purely born out of the idea to meet local people (not in cities!!!) and staying and living/spending time with them and learning their culture and how they live their day to day life.

After coming back from Australia I rented out my house in England so this trip was also about searching for a place to live maybe a new place I can call home…..?

Somewhere in the mountains or other remote areas and maybe start a family………?

When I find it I will move there and just fly out and then back for my work rotation as many people in my work sector live all over the world in my line of work....

Even when I met the famous Terry Brown from Cambridge England I told him of my end goal to stay in Tajikistan in a small village in which I remember him saying would you not get bored spending 2-3 weeks in one small village which all might think but this was the plan from the start………Its Tajikistan or Bust!!!!

Well yes we have internet but I work 12 hour shifts and after I go to the gym so I have limited time to write on this ride report to give it the full justice ( i am back on dry land in 13 days ) it needs to show all you guys that are along for the ride how nice these places are and how amazing the kind people I meet along the way are who I put 100% trust in just from meeting as a solo rider in totally remote areas/places and how friendly and giving they are……..

I would like to think of it as an educational experience for all to see who have never been to these places; I want to show these places in their true light and not what the TV or newspapers say

It’s a true ride report from the heart, its real life……..





Anyway im back on dry land in 13 days and also the princess was Slovakian and not Slovenian...........

You'll lucky, I've never had a princess.

Still a whole hell of a lot more good people on this Earth than bad and riding a bike one seems to always find the good ones

Many more great experiences to be had...

Your itinerary has been my dream trip for over 3 years. For some time I had considered doing it by bicycle, but discovered I would be unable to complete the Russian segments fast enough.

Terry----we're laughing with you---not at you. It was really funny how that bongo ride came about---and we know that you enjoy the humor as much as we do. Now---back to Wesley and his interesting report----wondering if he found that photo we have all been waiting to see?

For sure me thinks.

We named a recent corgi pup to our family 'Bongo'.

He just reminds me of Terry and built like a Bongo.
