It’s the beginning of September and as of today we’ve been on the road for two years. Two years! When we write it out, it’s hard to believe. So, what have we been doing all that time?
Well, we’ve had 306 rest days, off the bikes. That leaves 424 days to do all the other things we get up to. We are very good at sleeping and we reckon that takes up a good 8 hours a day. That’s 141 more days gone right there.
Now we’re down to 283 days.
During that time we’ve practiced another specialty, eating, which easily takes up 3 hours of our day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and a multitude of snacks. A cyclist has to eat and that’s 35 days gone just on calorie intake.
Add in shopping at the market (1 hour), writing things for the website, getting it online and keeping in touch with all of you (at least 1 hour), relaxing and sightseeing (2 hours) and we’re left with just 196 days.
How many days?! We still haven’t done our washing, filtered our drinking water, packed and unpacked our luggage, set up our tent, cleaned the bikes, planned our route or renewed our insurance and bank cards not to mention sorting through the other paperwork amassing in a pile at a friend’s house in London. That’s got to be at least another 2 hours a day right there.
So now we’re left with just 179 days on the road. Lazy? Well, in that time we have managed to cover 29,888km – about two thirds of the earth’s circumference. That’s an amazing 166km a day through 25 countries on 4 continents! Phew. Now we’re feeling tired. And we’ve survived 302 nights together in close quarters in our tent and we’re still married and speaking to one another. Even more amazing! Here’s to the next year on the road…

Congratulations! Happy second anniversary!
I may have to take issue with some of your math though – perhaps there’s a bit of double-counting going on? 🙂

We tried not to double count but it was a bit late in the evening when we posted… you work it out and let us know what you come up with 😉

Singapore is genuinely exciting for its multilayered cultural tapestry!

If that is something that talks with you as well after that Singapore need to not be missed out on as your next travel location! Hawker Centres in Singapore provide an impressive selection of neighborhood meals. Do not miss trying Hainanese Chicken Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were spectacular – I especially appreciated Supertree Grove and also Cloud Woodland – they absolutely took my breath away! The light show in the evening was absolutely enchanting and an outright must-see! Singapore supplied such an amazing mix of futuristic design as well as rich plants – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is truly outstanding to find! Singapore’s public transport is exceptional! From its efficient metro train system and also simple travel with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for relaxation – which flaunts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and extra tourist attractions! – their public transport has actually set brand-new requirements. Aquarium, beautiful coastlines, and various other home entertainment for the whole family members make Singapore an superb way to spend a day. Do not miss Singapore’s ArtScience Museum which integrates art, science, and innovation in an amazing combination! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were absolutely wonderful; with interactive exhibits as well as captivating displays producing an memorable trip – certainly worth a check out! I was truly taken aback at Singapore’s extraordinary buying scene! From high-end malls such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s lively markets there really is something below for any kind of shopaholic to experience! See to it to leave some space in your suitcase! I located Singapore Zoo among the finest zoos I have actually checked out; it’s open-concept enclosures and also immersive environments created a true wildlife experience, not forgetting Evening Safari for added excitement! Singapore’s multiculturalism is another drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, and also Western influences can be seen all over from style to food; producing a remarkable fusion!
