Greetings from bike tourers in Cambodia

Hello everybody,
We're a British couple on our way to China from Indonesia and are just over half way there. We've been on the road for 8 months and have about 7 more left.
We're both 27 and neither of us were cyclists before this trip (Although Liv occasionally commuted to work). We're having fun learning the difference between a cassette and a freewheel, and and the phrase 'if it ain't broke, fix it til it is' Its been a steep learning curve for us but we're total converts to the two wheel ways.

Our blog is here wecycletour

We're trying to document and raise money for a charity along the way so any advice on fundraising would be appreciated. We've recently started selling a few photos to raise money.

We've biked through tropical heat and up volcanoes but are going to be in China and the freezing mountains before long. This is way out of our comfort zone and anything we've experienced before (even in the UK) so we're excited about that -if a little apprehensive.

Nice to meet you
Liv and Rob

Wow. Quite the adventure. You may want to post your adventures in the touring forum. Sounds like a great journey.
