  1. OH HOW I ENVY YOU, THERE’S NOTHING MORE I ENJOY THAN BEING ESCONSED IN A PLANE AT 30,000 FEET AND HEARING A LONG THREATENING BANG AND THEN SPENDING DAYS AND HOURS GOING THROUGH SUNDRY CUSTOMS INTERROGATIONS AND ENDING UP NEXT SLEEPING WITH SOME BAGS OF FLOUR. YOU SHOULD ORGANIZE TOURS .

  2. Thanks a lot. I’ve been trying to get Tonya interested in bike touring and now you’ve blown years of subtle manipulation right out the window. Suffer on, it’s not even a flesh wound!

  3. Wow. What a start. Most sorry to hear about the computer loss!!?? Remember your Kobo story in Europe. You predicted the high winds but they do sound super challenging. Love the little house you stayed in. Amazing adventure. I’ll read all your posts to Mom! love Elaine

  4. Wow! What a ”nice” start, hein?! Not funny to hear that bang especially when you are in a plane! By chance, you are fine and safe. But what a stressful situation?! You are very courageous to go through all that wind and water. However, you are seeing marvelous views and meet a lot of interesting persons. Keep going safely and follow your impressions. I am enjoying reading you and seeing your pictures. Thanks for that.

  6. PS.I continue to think about the lost computer. It is such a crying shame. Can you buy a bluetooth external keyboard for your Ipad. I just bought a Logitech K380.(360?) Super light and super cheap. $29. Might help. Happy travels.

  8. Hi Claire and Jim, thanks so much for posting about your trip! I love the pictures. The landacapew are beautiful. Good luck with the wind. Damien and I pushed our bikes through north west China, Xinjiang for a few days! It was hard work! I look forward to your next post! Gill

  9. What a great Jimbo, albeit I’m reading it 5 days since you posted it. God knows what has happened since? Sounds like you might need a tacking sail where you are biking? Improvise and use Claire’s panties if need be. LOL. The lost computer is sad news. Next time shoot the offender and take it back! Good on ya for getting back on the “bird” after being attacked by a Russian drone! Impressive, that you both got back on the horse, so to speak, right away- after exploring the lights of Broadway etc. Sounds like you are meeting great people already- hardly unexpected! And good to see you’re including pics of people not just architecturally striking buildings. LOL (NB. My dad had a seafaring pal who took a cruise to Australia around the Horn etc and he came home w/ literally 100’s of pics of waves! Yes, and he showed them all to us too!) Good to hear you remain in great spirits & your adventures have begun now in earnest.
    Cheers, the other Luddite.

  10. Allo vous deux. Contente de vous lire et de constater que vous vous en sortez bien malgré le retard de vol, perte d’ordi et forts vents. Vous êtes en train de réaliser un nouveau projet rêvé et planifié de longue date. J’attends vos autres publications avec impatience. Bonne chance et faites attention à vous. Bisous de la part d’ALain et moi. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  11. Jim/Clare, just catching up on the tour. WOW…..great start!! It’s all about the adventure, otherwise there would be no good stories to tell. We are going to take an oath at the next Hound ride to not complain about any riding conditions we might experience until you are back. Keep those pedals turning, and I wish for less hike a bike in your future. Rayooo….! Brian

  12. Hi Claire, Jim, What a fantastic adventure! The shuddering of the plane had me shuddering just imagining it. And you got back on another plane! Some people might have reconsidered. I LOVE the cabin. Running water? Probably a silly question, but does the wind blow in a particular direction, and if so, why didn’t you start at the other end? I’ve just looked at today’s weather and it’s only 11 degrees and raining (and windy). Tell me this – when you’re pedalling or pushing into freezing rain and the ferocious wind doesn’t let you catch your breath – it’s still worth it, right? I thought so. I’m enjoying every post and wondering where you are. Wishing you many happy, warm, blessed days ahead!
