Let me tell you this. Never in a million years would I have thought that I’d have to pack for a 6-month long trip being confined to the capacity of a bicycle. Impossible as it seemed, I did manage to pack. And seeing that I’m here recounting the experience to you, I survived.

I got on my Long Haul Trucker, and when the 60kg heavy luggage burdened my body, the thought of not realizing the dream weighed down my shoulders even more. That was how it began. The journey from Kuala Lumpur to London took 6 months and not just that, it took all I had as a cyclist – my stamina and my endurance, living more than 12 hours on two wheels.
