Pretty cool! Nice plan for the winter heading south. Plan will probably change alright, that's my favourite part actually
Your motivation is dead on, exactly why I love cycling. Hmmmm, wonder what I can afford to do if I quit tomorrow...
I liked Chris's mention of how you appreciate something simple like a shower. Btw for insects, I brought long sleeved/legged stuff for the evening, and great tip: oranges, or orange peel to be precise: rub the inside of the peel over your skin - insects don't like the citric acid taste and don't bite you. Cheaper than spray, just as effective, and you get some healthy food! Works, honest.
Podcast likes: canadian's saying aboot, some of the content was interesting, conversational style, women in podcasts - rare from what I've listened to!
Dislike: sections were a little bit too long for my liking - then again I'm practically ADD - and I switched off during some of the content, because I'm a bad person and I got distracted by shiny pictures of bikes. But I did rewind cos I felt guilty and I wanted to hear what I tuned out over. Make it more snappy? I dunno. It's pretty interesting so don't go losing sleep over my opinion
Overall, great start, look forward to hearing some wacky adventures, especially from Tangiers etc I'm sure. My favourite part of touring is the cool stories you gather along your travels... like the time me and my cousin stayed in that weird French guys house and .... nevermind, that's a story to recount over a beer.
