All I seam to here these days are what the young girls or young ladies are doing as regards anything adventurous.
Here is the example that I wish to talk about, URL:onelittlewheel.com...
Two young ladies from England are going to ride a bicycle from the UK overland to Thailand and the following is the route. All this to support
HIV/AIDS awareness oh yes and by the way raising money for charity on the way.
We will travel overland from England to Thailand. Listening, cycling, listening, cycling…..
We are currently planning to cycle through Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbijan and then the Stans (Iran might be a bit too hard to get a Visa for in
the current climate!), Pakistan, India. At this junction we have a dilemma. We will firstly try a catch a boat from India to Singapore and go up
through Malaysia to Thailand. If that fails, and miraculously the India / Myanmar (Burma) border opens, we will cycle through Burma, Laos, Vietnam,
Cambodia and into Thailand. OR we will try and go through Nepal into China and round the top to Vietnam, Cambodia and into Thailand.
We will be travelling for 9 months visiting schools and projects along the way, asking the young people we meet to respond to the challenges of HIV /
AIDS in our world today. The responses can be individual or group responses; they can take whatever form the VOICES decide to use. Fingers crossed we
are hoping to leave July 2010!
‘…we glibly say the world is a small place. That is nonsense: the world is enormous… It’s diversity and variety is staggering.‘ Alastair
Humphreys. One of the key aims of this project is to highlight our unity through diversity.
The journey is a major challenge in its own right; 12 – 15,000km by bike and train is no mean feat! The team will no doubt encounter many challenges
along the way
