    I'm really enjoying your report and pictures! Beautiful part of the world that I'll probably never get to see. Thank you for taking the time! :clap

    Vasar, you are a tough and bold guy.
    You make this tour alone! Hard work, for obtain all wonder in only one lifetime. It is very sympathic for me, that you are not longer an teenager and you make all this with you faithful old bike.
    You are one of my real heroes.

    I really appreciate the "no frills" approach to this trip and ride report. I'm sure there were MANY hardships and problems along the way, but the way it's presented here makes it seem like you just loaded up the bike and went for a leisurely jaunt around half the world. :clap

    Love it. Great photo's too.

    Amen to that.
    Got my subscription.
    :clap

    Must have been quite tough to persevere in the wet being on your own.
    Well done.

    Hopefully the swollen foot/ankle heals quick.

    Really enjoying the pictures! Love that you're doing it solo. Trips are taken to a whole level when it's just yourself.
