When my friend Hans asked if I would be interested in writing a column in The Independent about the trip my answer was a resounding yes. The only thing more fun than travel is writing about it, and if people will actually read it the thrill is even greater. It also helps keep me occupied while riding, instead of talking to myself inside my helmet I am trying to organize my thoughts into articles as well as blog posts. (Except when I see goats, I still tend to squeal and then sigh in disappointment that there is no one to turn to and exclaim over cuteness with!)
So it should be a biweekly, slightly more focused, and certainly a more grammatically correct, retelling of our adventures. But this blog will still have the random and everyday experiences. Promise.
