In the summer of 2017, two years after losing my husband in a motorcycle accident, I went motorcycle camping for the first time. I enjoyed the two day trip so much that I decided I was going to give up my job and ride around the world.
Ok, there was a bit more to it than that, including a tidal wave or two of pain and grief. But anyway I decided to do this epic undertaking because it was the scariest thing I could think of doing.
In July 2018 I set off from the UK on my Triumph Tiger. I zigzaged through Europe and then headed east on the north Silk Road, through Central Asia to South East Asia, where I got stuck for a while before escaping to the vastness that is Australia.
After a brief visit back to the UK to shed the anchors of material possessions, Boo Tiger and I flew to North America aiming for another few continents. But things didn’t quite go to plan. Plan D that was.
