Thoughts from Damascus

Paddy and his bikeIt’s hard to believe it’s nearly Christmas and we have been on the road for well over a year. Time is just flying by and since we last reported from Istanbul we’ve had so many wonderful experiences. So, here’s our latest radio show from a Damascus teahouse.

We hope you enjoy this one, with thoughts about touring in Turkey and Syria and two interviews: one with a Swedish couple, Lea and Johnny, who are tackling Europe, Thailand and New Zealand by bike and another with Paddy, a lively lad from Manchester who spent 5 years cycling Europe and working on farms. We met Paddy in Turkey where he was heading for Prague to spend the winter, with hopes of a world trip in the future.

    Hi guys just an update from the now sunny prague.

    My girlfriend has just chopped up this yellow t-shirt as she thinks its disgusting. But I think it’s just me who disgusts her 😀

    I will send more information about working on the foarms within europe, as I have a list of useful address, where I stayed over the past load of years, and also I will give a rough guide to how survive working through europe.

    Good luck with the ride and I will look forward to reading these journals.
