If you’re planning a similar trip and you want to ask anything then I’d be more than happy to share the little I know.

  1. Dude for sure im not the first to tell you this but youre an inspiration!
    I am planning to do sth similar, aiming Mongolia, and everyone around holds you back with all the “its dangerous”, “you gotta be really prepared physically to start it” and so on…
    Keep pedalling mate!


  2. Hi JKB. I loved reading about Hong Kong – we were there about 12 years ago for a week and it brought back lots of lovely memories. We are going back for a week for New Year 2017 – and I’m looking forward to it even more now. Actually I love reading all your blogs – you write really well – and its a real treat when they ping in. So it was good news for all of us that you got back! Happy peddling and happy writing. Love Amanda


    1. Hey Amanda- glad to hear the blog is being enjoyed!
      It’s always nice to read about somewhere you can relate to, I know the feeling.
      No doubt it will be a very different place than when you last visited!
      But I really live that country… you’ll have a blast!


  3. Hi, best idea I have seen in a long time and I hope you’re enjoying it. I have often thought about doing something like this myself and I am curious about how much it has cost you so far for the time you have gone and if you are earning any money on the way?


    1. Hey Thomas! Has cost me about £4k so far in all. I’ve not been earning any more on the way (not really worth it in the places I’ve past) but I’m thinking about stopping to work in OZ if I want to continue cycling…


  4. Hey jonathan a friend redirected me to your site since i have been telling everyone i want to travel and on the day i decided im planning on traveling to australia too when i saved anough money… then i discovered your blog, how convenient i’ve always dreamt of traveling and ive read all your stories in a day lol well some text i skimmed but i get the picture. altough im taking a slightly different route one that will take me to mongolia first then into china. my trip will happen in a year or 2 hopefully next year tough…anyways enough rambling good luck in australia. i think the couchsurfing community is also great there huh.


    1. Hey mate – sorry for the slow reply.
      Thanks so much for getting touch, glad to hear the blog is of interest and hopefully useful too in your planning!
      Mongolia would be a beautiful place to travel…


  5. Hey JKB, Been following your blog since we did the Pamir Highway last year, and really enjoying it. Are you coming through NZ? If so, come and stay…we are Warmshower hosts in New Plymouth…its a bit out on a limb but Taranaki the province we live in was Lonely Planets second global destination choice for 2017, so must have something going for it!
    Cheers Rhys


  6. Hey Rhys…
    Glad you are enjoying the blog!
    I am heading to NZ in a month, although not quite sure where I’ll be cycling at the moment .
    Was actually thinking of staying on the south island but if I end up north as well I promise I will hit you up 🙂


  7. Hello there, I’m planning to do a cycle from NZ to London… I have been searching high and low for information on the best time to cross the Stans as I think that is the highest point and can only be crossed in summer?

    In addition, between NZ and London, would you be able to give me a brief overview of your country, distance to cross, time it took and month you did it? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks, Georgi


  8. Jonathan – Mark Ostheimer guided me to your blog and I have to say you’re an inspiration. Love the approach to life you have taken. Have you thought about public speaking and/or sharing your experiences with students or professionals in the work place? I reckon the world would be a whole lot better place to be if we took the same approach as you. I have done some small touring (in comparison to you) and embark on a solo trip from Spain to Norway this Spring (6,500 km). As I cycle northwards much of the advice you’ve given in your blog will be used to enhance the trip. So thanks for taking the time to share your incredible adventure with the rest of us. – Nick


  9. Hey Jonathan – Another long distance tourer, Mark Ostheimer guided me to your blog and I am thankful he did.What a great approach to life you have.The world would be a whole lot better place to be if we all on boarded your attitude. Have you thought about public speaking or sharing your adventures with students or professionals in the work place? I think they’d find it inspirational and you’d probably get paid to do it. I have done some short distance touring (comparatively speaking of course) and embark on slightly longer trip (6,500km) this spring when I cycle from Spain to Norway. As I head north much of the advice you have given in regards to touring will be utilised to help enhance the ride. So, massive thanks from me for sharing your incredible adventure with us. – Nick (aka


    1. Hey Nick – sorry for the slow reply!
      Thanks for the kind words. I’ve done a few talks here and there but it’s not something I’m actively pursuing at the moment…
      Enjoy the ride up to Norway! I’m jealous now that I’m back in an office day to day…

  11. Hi Johnathan My name is Ivan and you contacted me on warm showers but unfortunately i couldn’t accommodate you due to working late shifts. Anyway i’ve made a site on wordpress yrs ago and decided to bring the site up to date as i’m setting off on a tour in may and would like to do a blog for my family members. My question is that when i click on your site, the blog tab, all your post’s are expanded when i click on the heading with a date. I have trawled tutorials trying to learn how to do this myself but i can’t find a solution. Please enlighten me as to how i can do this with my old posts or new ones to come. Kind regards Ivan. My site is
