Where did you hear about the tour?

In the Lonely Planet Book

Why did you want to sign up?

I didn’t want to get a real job so I thought I’d spend money instead!

What’s been your most challenging moment so far?

The day before the Blue Nile gorge, riding with a fever trying to save my EFI!

What’s taking up too much space in your locker?

My bags!

Did you do any fundraising?

Yeah I did some fundraising for Bicycles for Humanity

What kind of bike did you bring?

I have a Salsa El Mariachi named “Romeo” but now I just call him “Buddy”.  I’m very happy with him, we work well together.

What do you like the most about being here?

Just being here! I really like living this way!

Is there anything that you would do differently in terms of physical preparation?

Before I got here I would have liked to do more but once I was here it was fine.  The best preparation I did was a camping and cycling trip in rain and hail for 2 weeks from Melbourne to Adelaide and back again.

What do you miss most about home?

Surprisingly nothing! Maybe my sister and my dad!
