Happy New Year from Big O’s Adventures

Happy New Year from Big O’s Adventures

Happy New Year from Dogubayazit, Turkey. Affectionately known as Dog Biscuit. 🙂 It’s been a brilliant year full of adventure, mystery and surprises. With so many events that I could have never predicted, it has been a crazy ride. Everywhere I have been the people of each country have been welcoming, hospitable and generous.

Hello India – Leg 4 begins

Hello India, It’s great to be back!! After an extended stay in Singapore (waiting for my delayed vessel to leave Port Klang) I flew back to Kuala Lumpur to collect my shipping documents, and then onto Kolkata on Tuesday. It was a great few weeks relaxing but I’ve been getting itchy feet waiting to get back on the road. I’m now in central Kolkata and have begun the process of arranging for Boris’ container to clear...

The third leg of the journey had a little more drama and excitement than I’d expected. Now I’m focussed on preparing to ship Boris to India. The journey...

China Part 3 – The Slow Road to Happiness, The Flood, and The Great Chinese Dumpling Challenge

China Part 3 – The Slow Road to Happiness, The Flood, and The Great Chinese Dumpling Challenge

The morning after the accident was a slow start. Nobody was sure what to expect. None of us had ever been in this situation before. Still there were things to do. I needed to fixed Boris’ right rear spring. I’d been driving on it for over 1000km, and a solution need to be found before I disabled my car even further. So while the bikers looked after the situation with David, Fun, V, K and I went to visit the local spring...
