Thomas Andersen, Hartford, Connecticut

Hi, my name is Thomas Andersen. In October 2010 I left Denmark by bicycle, not knowing what to expect. What followed was an epic journey.

I have cycled through Eastern Europe learning all about the local beer, I have been chased by dogs in Turkey. I have pedalled through Syria before the war began. I have been a celebrity in Malaysia, and worked on a huge cattle station in Australia.

In late 2013 I flew to Ushuaia in southern Argentina and I'm now cycling north towards Canada.

I hope you will enjoy your stay on this site. Come along by checking out the diary below, and also the feeds on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
