I think it is because you have your mind and heart open to "it is what it is", rather than being afflicted with schedules and expectations. It isn't just about "riding a bike", its the total experience.

Your upbeat and generous reports remind me of two classic travel related quotes:

"The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see." G K Chesterton.

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. Lao Tsu.

It seems like the delays you experience do not try your patience, you use them as opportunities to further explore where you find yourself. Much, much respect, and thank you again for taking the time to let us experience your travels through your wonderful reports.
