I am glad I have left the main roads. Yesterday I had small roads along the beach, and today small roads in the mountains. This means a lot of climbing, but it’s peaceful and beautiful in the forest and rice fields. I’m staying with a lovely family between two volcanoes. I hope to see the volcanoes tomorrow – there’s too much rain and cloud to see anything at the moment.



The rain came at the best moments today – just after I stopped for a break. At one of my breaks I was invited into a house to see the mother cooking sweets for sale at the local market.

Tomorrow between the volcanoes and then to Borobudur.

    Matthew it is really inspiring to read about your journey. I have been following your posts on the Facebook. I used to ride during my school days but later i stopped. After reading your posts it has inspired me to get back to it and achieve something.
    Now i have enrolled myself to a cycling expedition, organised by Youth Hostel India. I would be going from Manali to Leh in northern India. Being it in Himalayas, it is going to be a tough ask but I am preparing myself for this challenge. Crossing mountain passes of 5000m will be something.
    But the most important thing is that, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reigniting my forgotton love. I hope you complete this journey and begin another as wonderful, exciting, and learning as this. Take care and all the best my friend.
