What a difference in your bike now and when you just started. I'm not surprised that the Antarctic Explorer look is the favourite photo!

A pity it's still raining – it's sunny here. Nice to havemore frequent blogs now that you are in Europe.

Well, I would be glad to have rain, instead we will have snow again during the wekend. This weather here is crazy :)

Hopefully it will clear after that and we will have a normal, warm spring days during our ride through Slovenia.

Enjoy in the warmth of the Makarska Riviera.

Regards,

Peter

I've been tuning in from time to time, it's been an inspiring trip! I just wanted to post to say that I hope you're still taking videos, even if you haven't had time to upload them. The mini vids you put together prior to your trip are amazing, I'm looking forward to seeing more!

John, thanks for the encouragement re the videos. I had taken some awesome clips in the wilderness of western China and Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, but they are locked away in the portable hard disk I used to back them up with. I can't get access to them…will try to figure that one out after the trip.

I haven't been taking many vids lately…but I will do so. The effort sure is worth it.

Carl, it snows in London?! I thought it just teased with freezing rain and dark coulds for 367 days of the year.

Mum, a fully loaded bike looks more impressive, but you can't beat the freedom of a light bike :-)
