      Ha, you have 40° winter days & I have 15° summer days!
      I’ve just hiked the Icelandic Landmannalauger – Þórsmörk trail & seen some lovely landscapes that I think you’d love, but not to cycle over…

      & I think Dannebrog needs a wash, especially after that sandstorm!

      Hi Carolyne….

      Good to hear from you. It sure is an upside down world sometimes.

      Two minds, one thought. I just washed my beloved Dannebrog (and myself) the other day. All good.

      Hola Maca….Si-si-si…pelito corto.

      I didn’t have the courage (like Ricardo) to let Paola do the hair cut… 🙂

      Nic, hope you still remember me;)

      When do you expect to get to the United States? Glad you are still having fun and man I’m soooo jealous. Time for me to get my ass off and touring again. Stay safe, lots of tailwinds and enjoy the nice weather and people down there;)

      Hi Rich…

      Is it possible to forget – after those expedition days across Tibet? I guess not.

      As I just mentioned on your new site, it´sgreat to see that you´re getting back on the road again. ´Cos in my mind, that really is where you belong, Rich. I will forever have fond and great memories from our rough cyclings days from Saga to the Nepali border…(never mind the gas factory, huh?) 🙂

      A semi-wild guess for my US entry would be summer 09.

      God bless…
