Half way


I don’t know the exact half way point by road, for the route I’m taking. However, time wise I have reached my half way point. Not because I’ve got half way through my available time, it’s more a case of crossing time zones.

I started my voyage in a distant land at GMT+10. As I head west I cross timezones going towards GMT. (Usually an hour at a time, sometimes 30 minutes). As we entered Kazakhstan yesterday the clocks went back, making local time GMT+5. Half way home!

It’s a good feeling, though it’s also a reminder of how big the world is. At this rate I should be home in 5 hours. (Sort of!)

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
