There seems to be some debate as to whether adventure motorcycling is a holiday or not. I suppose it depends on whether you make money from it. If so, then by definition it becomes employment. I’m hoping to write a book on my return, so right now gaining the experiences to write about constitutes work.
You can see from the picture the harsh conditions under which I’m slaving over a hot blog!
In reality there are good days and bad. Today is definitely one of the better days, maybe one of the best so far. But far from being complacent, I’m sure that there are some very tough days ahead. Especially Mongolia and Kazakhstan.
On those days where the road is tough, the weather bad and the punctures many – I need to remind myself that days like today make it all with while. It’s like being on holiday. (But it’s not, of course!).
