Reason # 1: Check it off your list.
You have been to hundreds of countries already and want to visit one more. Brunei is for you; bring your bicycle because the locals are so rich that they all have personal vehicles that there are no taxis or busses in Bandar Seri, the capital.
Reason # 2: Convenience
You are on Borneo island, maybe in one Indonesian side and you want to reach the other one, and you have time enough to cycle Sabah and Sarawak states of Malaysia. Brunei is for you, it is right in the middle.
Reason # 3: Easy cycling
You are a business man and you have three free days in Brunei. Ok, bring your Brompton and enjoy almost empty jungle roads with perfect tarmac, clean resting areas, and friendly people.
Reason # 4: Luxury for free
You like 5 stars hotels but you do not have any money. Brunei is for you. There is such a lack of travelers and excess of wealth that you may end up being invited to the Sheraton... thanks, Mr. Alex!
Reason # 5: Unique
You were drunk and you lost that game with your friends. Now you have to find a Muslim country surrounded by jungle, with clean facilities, friendly people, visa-free, drinking water and no beer. Brunei is for you!
About Salva Rodriguez:
Salva was a teacher taking many holidays cycling trips all over the world. One day he asked himself why he has to live three months a year the life he really wants to live all the time.
Since he did not find any suitable answer, he left for a bicycle journey with no return ticket. That was January 2006.
So far, he has cycled in Africa and Asia, made a treasure of hundreds of friends, had pretty good experiences, went through useful difficulties, opened his mind and heart, and learnt some new things.
He thinks he is ready to come back home now and see friends and family, share some things with them and maybe start a family. But first he wants to try to cross America.
