I realized I've only been taking pictures of where we've been sleeping as of late. In an attempt to switch it up, I'm going to focus on daily swimming spots for a while. It's really hot up in the north, usually it gets above 38 (100) in the afternoon sun so the swims are going to be mandatory

We pushed our bikes 6 km over the island mountains to get to Loh Moo Dee. We were going to camp there but got turned away, when asked why the owner wouldn't answer. I think my big nose, curly hair and cheapness finally had a negative consequence (see the bottom of the picture)...

Well, it turned into 90 km but we made it to a great night market and asked people if there was a cheap hotel around. We got escorted to this, which I thought was a car wash but ended up being a really dirty flee bag motel. It did the job

Beautiful beaches up here but there are little jellyfish, about 1/2 a centimeter long, that sting you. After 10 minutes you're getting stung all over your body. Not really painful but enough to make you not want to swim anymore.

Best camping spot on the world! Steve even had three kids to help put his tent up. We had heard there was a camping spot on the other side of the river but the guy with the boats wouldn't take us over for some reason. We asked if we could camp here and he said of course!

Looks like we missed each other by 1.5 months in Istanbul. Definitely rest in Istanbul and check out the Blue Mosque, Tokaki Palace and the party scene on the European side.

I was saying (before I inappropriately pressed "post") that pomegranate is a so called super-fruit, so fill up!! I'm sure you can do with anything super during your super trip. Hugs!

Wow, these recent treks through the mountains are incredible! I'm not too bad about heights, but some of those cliff-side shots gave me the the willies! Keep on crankin, guys, and I hope your knee isn't too bad, Aaron, if you're able to make these monster climbs?

LGT misses you. He really does! He askes about you quite a bit. Where is Aaron? Where is Aaron? Is Aaron in China yet? How about now? Pretty funny...

PS: If you keep that up you will go blind.

I just had one of those daydreams about punching someone in the nose (it felt really good). When I woke up I thought it best that I check in with you for a dose of calm. These picture and tales continue to inspire. Keep up the good work.

Greatings from Hong Kong! Sounds fantastic! Looking forward to Vietnam and China posts. Don't miss Siem Reap and Phnom Penh if you can help it. Feel free to contact us if you need anything while in Asia.

Posted: 16 Apr 2012 by Ron

Great job! I really enjoy your posts! well, how do you keep your iphone in charged and not been stolen. it seems quite far away from cities to cities. Anyway keep on doing this!

Posted: 13 Apr 2012 by Zheng Cartman

I'm loving following this guys. Looks like you are doing great and seeing lots of interesting things. Is it too much to ask to Fed-Ex the next B'worth sign you find over to me? Hope the morale is still going strong.

Posted: 16 Mar 2012 by Greg Beardsworth

Hey Aron! Is everything going well? You haven't posted for few days, hope all is good with you guys. Very jealous of your beach time in Thailand :-) I'll e-mail you soon!

Posted: 9 Mar 2012 by sissi.b

Truly enjoy living vicariously through your journey! Thinking of you both - what an experience! Thank you for all of the posts!
Note to Steve: How's it going with your folks' visit out there with you? Ask your mom to let us know they are ok! (you know Grandma Lucy worries :-). Much love! xox

A quick check in from Sean's couch (face full o' lip food and the carrot has been smashed). The pictures look great and the updates are very well written. Keep up the good work young man! Shanghai misses you dearly... Jia You!

We grew a pineapple plant in Houston. It was delicious and easy to grow

Posted: 19 Feb 2012 by GeneKeating

And I thought that you were still in Shanghai working 8 to 5 helping the Chinese building nuclear power station... I missed a few waypoints, didn't I? Look after yourself! You should go and stay with my parents when you bike through northern Italy in a few months :-)

Posted: 13 Feb 2012 by sissi.b

Aaron: Great pictures!!! You are moving right along! What adventures! We sure are enjoying traveling with you.:-}

Posted: 13 Feb 2012 by Judy & Bob

Arrrrron good job! and your parents should rent a bike go around the city with you though! :) have fun

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 by troji

I pulled this up during a meeting with WEC, Shaw, Snpec on air handling units. Nobody, except keith, made any useful statements. Complete waste of time. --
Your pictures / trip was a welcome relief . Awesome!! Keep adding.

Dad and I just got immunizations and booked flights to Bangkok for Feb 15 - we need to figure out how to hook up with you guys... we will not be biking!
