The route map is Re size-able, simply zoom in or out.

The route has changed from my original plan, but then this had led to a greater sense of adventure!

I originally planned on riding the Camino de Santiago route through France and into Spain, then working my way down through Africa. Snow halted me in France and the Pyrenees and I ended up taking a train to Perpignan and following the coast down to Gibralta and then onwards into Morocco.

Africa proved a nightmare for me. I was robbed on three occasions and had my passport stolen in Senegal, meaning a return to London to replace it. This seriously depleted my funds.

I then decided to change my route and set off this time through Europe, loosely following the Danube through to Turkey and then into ‘the Stans’ of Central Asia.

If all goes well I will continue on to South East Asia and then skip across the ocean to Canada. My plan is to ride across Canada and down to New York, then ride across America to San Francisco. If I’m able to continue I’ll then follow the Pan American Trail through South America.

Take a look at the Trips page or click the Route Map link to see where I’ve been.

When you get to Chile, an ocean-view room awaits you. ;-)

      Mr.Derek,
      My dad is a cancer patient too. Your story is his power. Must tell him now. All the best wishes to you! God bless you Derek. I’m living in Vietnam, you can ask some local where is the best pagoda. Go there and pray! We all do that here.
