Months procrastinating, weeks debating, days decision making, hours planning and in one whole minute we kissed farewell and left the UK.
Our big fat bike trip begins.
This is my third long-haul tour, having already done Chile to Canada and Australia to the UK on a BMW GS. For Nicola, motorbike touring is a completely new experience, one she is embracing wholeheartedly.
You can read the story and follow the bike log, as well as watch some videos documenting some of the interesting places we find along the way. Check out Our Big Fat Flickr Stream to view more photos than are posted on the blog, which also has a map indicating where the photos were taken.
