I am planning to cycle from Moray Scotland To New Zealand over the next couple of years. I leave home on March 16th, catch the Newcastle -Amsterdam ferry on 23rd. My plan so far is to cycle to Bremen then across to Prague and Vienna and then into Slovenia. After that I will find the best route across to Turkey, then Armenia, Iran, Turkmenistan, the 'Stans to Kashi China and then south - weather dependent towards Singapore.
But I am very flexible as to my itinerary once I reach China. I would love to learn a little Chinese on the way! Also, the date in September 2018 is when my medical insurance runs out because of my age. I will be 70 next year! I am happy to link up with people on the way and I see that there are other people going around the same time. I
have not done anything quite so dramatic as this before but I am pretty fit and can manage 80km a day with 3 or 4 days off every 10 days. I am also in no particular hurry but would like to reach China before winter sets in. I am generally vegetarian, but do eat meat sometimes as well.
I am very happy to link up with people if our paths cross.
