Paris to Istanbul
Hi all committed and prospective fellow Orient Express participants,
I hail from Canberra, Australia – though the family “home town” is Darwin, NT.
I’ve participated in a number of “Big Bike Rides” in Australia – But they are small stuff (in terms of duration) compared to the Orient Express.
Aside from recreational road riding I also play at mountain biking (for fitness).
I work for an international development non-government organisation – 23 years plus now.
Motivation for ride is mainly to be able to say I’ve ridden from Paris to Istanbul!
NB. Despite career/professional expertise I’m linguistically (outside of English) and directionally challenged
