Quite the Trip this Guy has undertaken!

I started communicating with Robert Thompson a few months ago. He was planning a bicycle trip from Japan to London. He is a very good writer (although some is in Japanese, which I can't read, even if I had the translation software), and he takes incredible pictures. He's riding a HP Velotechnik Street Machine GTe, and you'll see why. This is better than watching a movie. Settle in and read his blog from beginning to end. There's a map of his route, and he's currently in Tajikistan.

Anybody who is planning or wondering if they should do a remote cycling trip, should read this. It will probably either make you reconsider your plans, or if you're the adventurous type, relish the challenge.
