The positions of the passes are dictating our itinerary. Today was a short day to the bottom of the big double pass tomorrow. Time for Mark to pull out the Polaroid and take photos of the kids. Lots of excitement was had by all.

The passes seem short when you’re deep in conversation about anything and everything. It is good catching up with Mark, and being able to converse at full bandwidth with no language barrier. With Bangladesh looking quite dangerous these days, my forward plans are being reshaped. Borneo (side trip) – here I come!

    • Hi Cor.. I am in Luang Prabang at the moment. I will be there tomorrow (Tuesday) and we are leaving on Wednesday. If you have time, we can meet up. My email is matthew (dot) harris (at) web (dot) de

  2. Testing my geography here, will wait to see how your route pans out. Interesting change in scenery from the seer mountainous regions into padi fields and tropical vegetation. Safe pedalling.

    • Yes. The posts from 3 months ago are in the mountains and desert in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and China. After 3 months of cycling through China, I am now in the tropics. A very different environment.. 🙂 You can see a glimpse of how my China leg was in the videos section of my blog.. 🙂
