I was born in Hong Kong. I immigrated to Canada in 1979. After a few years in Canada, I was getting to like the wide openness of Canada. Then one summer in College I went to Europe. I quit college not long after that. All I could think of was going back to Europe. A few years later, I was back in Europe. But this time it wasn’t the same. The excitement was gone. While I was hitching to England to fly to Asia. I got a job offer and ended up working in Germany for 2 years. Then I continued with my travel. Somewhere along the way, I got into bicycle touring after hearing some amazing tales from a cyclist. For my first bike trip, I started from Shanghai, rode across China and into Tibet. Then to Nepal and India. That took approximately 1 year. Flat broke and went back to Canada to work. A few years later I flew down to Lima(Peru) and began my 2nd tour. Rode down the West Coast of South America to Ushuaia(Argentina). Then back up the East Coast to Recife(Brazil). Time for another break. So I spend about 1 year in Switzerland. Then flew down to Cape Town(South Africa) for my 3rd tour. I rode from South Africa to Israel. That took about 1 year. Africa remain my favorite continent. It was so harsh and bleak. Yet in some areas, you think you are in Europe. I met the most interesting travelers while I was in Ethiopia. I will never forget that country.
I am back in Canada once again. Will leave in 2009 for another tour. I hope this is the tour that will take me to retirement. If all my planning worked out like they were suppose to. I won’t have to work another day in my life. Preliminary plans are to fly to Bangkok first. Then ride down to Australia/New Zealand. Then perhaps fly back to Bangkok???? Will depends on the price of the flight. Then make my way up to Russia and do a Trans-Siberia trip. That should be a very interesting ride. I will probably skip Europe(too expensive) and fly to Morocco. Then ride down the West Coast of Africa. Too many countries, too little time.
