In February 2016 I set off from the UK with a plan to cycle to Iran. I ended up cycling to China, after navigating Europe and a version of the Silk Road. I reached China’s northwestern province of Xinjiang from Kyrgyzstan in November of 2016. After a bit of a break, cycling and travelling in Thailand and Myanmar, I cycled around China between April 2017 and July 2018, beginning and ending in the southwestern city of Kunming. It is good to see people finding this blog on google, and I get occasional messages from people planning similar trips, so I decided to keep this blog, and perhaps even finish it one day!
