Okay yes, the blog is really behind! I plan to bring it up to date in the next couple of weeks! Just a quick update though.
-The bike broke down a couple of times in Kaz and Russia, the last one being pretty major. Which lead me to leave it there as the cost of transport and repairs meant I was better off buying a new one.
-We decided to go to North America rather than SE Asia.
-We are currently in Canada and have a new bike!
