When it came to researching bicycle touring in Greece and was surprised by the lack of information. It seems that Greece does not have the best reputation as a bicycle touring friendly destination. I was pleasantly surprised to find the cycling very scenic and the drivers and people in general were friendly and curious. I… Continue reading Bicycle Touring In Greece In October 2019

Jaisalmer is famous jumping off point for camel rides in the desert and there were plenty of tours to choose from. I took an overnight trip with a French couple who staying at the same guesthouse.
Jaisalmer is a hot place but a pretty cool town. The fort is a living fort, meaning that people still live and work there, it is a great to walk around and is very photogenic.
Jodhpur is one of my favourite places so far. The old town is a small maze of streets just below the magnificent fort. The food is great and the people are friendly, what more could you ask for?
The journey to Jodhpur was broken up by stop at a temple after which I got on the wrong bus. This only added an extra hour to my day of buses and the sight that awaited me in Jodhpur was amazing.
It was with reluctance that I left Hampi and boarded an overbight bus to Pune which was rather boring. So the following day I took another bus to Mumbai, it was raining hard and the streets were flooded.
Goa was nice enough and certainly not as busy as I was expecting, relaxing on the beach with a few beers was nice. After spending a few nights in Goa, which was very quiet due to the rain, I decided to enjoy my first Indian train journey.
After waiting more than 2 weeks for my Indian visa to come through I was happy to see that I was given a six month dual entry visa. I arrived in Chennai at 10pm on June 11th.
I am still here in Thailand waiting for my Indian visa. I have booked my flight and fly to Chennai on the 11th of July.
