May 2019.  An opportunity to meet family, work alongside elephants, and cycle across Vietnam and Laos while raising awareness and funds to reduce waste is too good to miss.  So I’m setting off.


April 2017.  A volunteer position in Central African Republic hit centre screen of my Facebook feed earlier this year.  And centre screen of my curiosity too. So here I am….


It is January 2016 and I am on my first long cycle ride in decades, the first time even on a bike for more than 12 months, an overnight camping expedition to Whangaruru on the east coast. My year ahead is looking a bleak empty canvas, unframed and lacking focus, when the thought occurs – why no go cycle touring myself? So I am.
