We love Laos. This is where we met way back in 1996 and the country will always hold a special place in our hearts. Much has changed since we backpacked there in the mid-90’s. Back then there was no tourist trail. A few backpacker friendly guesthouses were popping up in Luang Prabang but that was [...]

The wind picked up, the sky turned a deep indigo and a few moments later the clouds burst. The rain fell fast and furious, pelting the thin metal roof under which we were sheltering. I was grateful to the Thai monks for their tradition of welcoming travelers. Tonight we would have a safe, dry place [...]
World Biking Image Wall In 2006 when we set off to cycle to Cape Town, we NEVER EVER imagined still being on the road 8 years and 150,000 kilometers later. Spend some time browsing through the images below and the same thing might just happen to you! Keep scrolling down to reveal pictures from the [...]
Almost six months ago we rolled off the Pelni from Malaysia and set out to circumnavigate Sulawesi. We survived that (but just barely) and went on to bike the length of Java (which turned out to be much better than expected). After my whirlwind trip to Montana and Eric’s stay in Jakarta (which is a [...]
A little to the left, a slight move to the right, a minor change of saddle angle…nothing stopped the bolts of pain in my underside as we bumped along Sumatra’s backroads. Turns out we still have a few things to learn about bike touring. Here’s our latest lesson learned: [...]
This is a guest post from the Cycling El Mundo team, Amanda Zeisset and Antonio Cala. #1 To Meet Mexicans Family, above all, is the most important aspect of Mexican culture. Perhaps this is why they so easily share their homes, food, time and culture with travelers. If you spend enough time [...]
As we crested the summit, a gust of wind brushed away a thick tangle of clouds and our eyes fell upon a spectacular sight: Mount Merapi, Indonesia’s most active volcano. Rising almost 3,000 meters (10,000 feet), “Fire Mountain” has been regularly erupting since 1548. The last major explosion goes back to 2010. Over 300 people [...]
It’s too touristy—you’ll be surrounded by hordes of cyclists and swarms of backpackers. 100% not true. Of course if you’re hungry for company, there’ll be no shortage of places to connect with fellow tourists. But if you’re in search of an ‘authentic’ experience, you’ll find it as soon as you slip of the banana pancake [...]
