5 things you should always remember about touring (for Mpora)

Hello everyone! Happy new year etc etc etc etc. We are set to leave for our year-long Africa trip in about 20 days, and yesterday we went to get some vaccinations which were sore and horrible. Website will be up soon. Meanwhile, this is a cartoon I did for the coolest adventure website, Mpora:

  1. Just the reminder I needed today as the planning for my mid-April departure has become a little stressful. I have the bike. I need some stuff but it's all good - I COULD leave tomorrow if I had to (well, maybe not tomorrow).

    1. Thank you Liz!! It looks like there has been a slight delay in Charlie's plans due to some university commitments, but he will be on the road by summer for sure and then after that exciting adventure a wonderful adventurer called Kelly is hoping to take him through Iceland to raise money to plant trees! So that is the current progress. Hope you are well :)

    1. Thank you Canadian Sailor (and cyclist). Cycling and sailing sounds like a very good combination, I was recently introduced to a thing where you can work on boats and sail around the world and I'm thinking I will do an adventure like that one day. I hope you are staying warm up there in the Northern Hemisphere :)
