Hello Everybody! I’m Adam, I’m 18 years old and I’m currently in the middle of a two year bike trip as a gap year between High School and College. I’m doing this as a sort of way to educate myself on the world before going to school for real and of course to grow my love for cycle touring.

I’ve toured with my family all my life, ever since my dad and pregnant mom pulled me in a Burley trailer across Mexico as a baby. Since then I’ve toured the US from coast to coast, Cuba, Eastern Europe and some weekend trips with my family. And now I’m off doing it on my own.

I’ve been on the road now for over half a year already and I’ve cycled across nine countries in that time. Check out the blog if you want to read about my day to day life on the road!

I flew fromContinue reading “March 10 – March 31”

    The second leg of the train trip from Chiang Mai to Bangkok to Surat Thani was interesting to say the least. After I finished the previous blog entry in the waiting area of the Bangkok train station, my train to Surat Thani pulled into the station.

    My last post ended with my reflection of the Buddhist Monestary in the Mae Hong Son region of Northern Thailand. I wrote that reflection as I was driving in an old Toyota Corolla through the jungle with the Thai guide and 4 Israeli girls who I had signed up for a jungle trek with. IContinue reading “Jan 27 – Feb 15”
