Hey everyone! I've been dreaming of a transcontinental adventure for a while now, so much so that it's almost become an obsession. I've done a few multi-week tours around Europe and think I'm ready to take on something a bit more epic.
About the trip:
My plan is to set sail from Europe in the Spring of 2022, just as the weather is getting better. Hopefully, covid restrictions will be a thing of the past by then. I'll head towards Istanbul where a decision will need to be made. In an ideal world, I'll continue east, through the mountains of Georgia, the deserts of Iran (maybe), the Stans, India/China, ending on a white sand beach in SE Asia. But if covid continues to disrupt just about everything, I'll head for Cairo, and attempt to cycle to Cape Town, along the East coast of Africa. I'm assuming that things will have improved significantly by then but in any case, I figure the borders and bureaucracy of African countries will be easier to navigate, compared to that of central Asian countries. Along the way, I'll wild camp mostly, along with warm showers
I'm 27 and from Ireland. I've been living in Brussels for the last 18 months and plan to leave here. I'm a cycling addict, who likes meeting new people. I love wild camping but you also just can't beat a hotel room when you really need it. I'm an easy-going guy and would love to find a companion for this most epic of adventures. Always happy to chat with a touring enthusiast so give me a shout if you'd be interested in joining The Big Kahuna. Cheers, Jack
