  • Onto north India where I met the Dalai Lama, lovely man, always smiling, very infectious, bears no grudges against China for invading his country, but is confident that his people will get it back in his lifetime. Which lifetime he did not say, he’s a spiritual leader of the Buddhist faith.

  • Saddhu in Nepal

  • Got to Sydney for start of the Olympics for fundraising, however proved to be useless, should have gone other way round Australia!
  • Uluru when rain washes off it. Trust me to get there in a downpour!
  • Umm, I had a bit of a spill riding through the Great Victoria Desert. Fair bit of damage to bike, contents of right pannier (the workshop and spares dept) spread over the unsurfaced track, as you can see my face ended up buried in the red sand. I was wearing a motocross helmet, so as you can see I was well bruried – ever used your faced as a brake…?
  • The red is done. The green is to go. More than third of time gone. Third of distance. I’ll be home July 2002, in theory at least! Hey, what an experience!

  • OK, now the serious part We’re fundraising for charity
  • The annual international aid budget is worth around US$100 billion year. But it benefitsusually only the donors. This is our Western taxpayers money , whislt we think it is going to the needy in the por countries, it goes in fact to companies! More often than not it damages the cultures and well-being of the ‘recipient’ countries too. To put it mildly I am ashamed and disgusted.
  • The fuel bill was covered by donations before departure. All other expenses en route covered by me.
