I woke up at -10°C in a culvert of frozen shit under a road at 4,000m (13,000 ft). It was the beginning of my first full day in China, and if I weren’t so pessimistic, I would have supposed things could only get better.
Welcome to Bike Ramble!
I’m travelling around the world rather slowly (5 years so far), and on a fairly small budget. Check out the Bike Ramble Blog to read the ramblings or the Bike Ramble Photos to see snaps of my bicycle adventures.
I’ve been travelling long distance by bicycle since 2010, and packed up and left Scotland in 2014 with three bags strapped to a bike. I sold all my stuff back home and don’t really have a plan; usually just going with the flow. I mainly travel solo, but also meet people on the way. This is a self-supported journey without taking any planes, buses or cars. I’m a bit of a purist that way. I work abroad as an English teacher, in hostels or other projects to fund my travels. Or maybe I’m a drug dealer (that’s a joke, Mum). I hate adverts and affiliate crap so you won’t find any on this website. I’m not sponsored by anybody either.
