Since 1996 we have done some 'serious' cycling during our holidays. It started in 1996 with our travels in Thailand and Malaysia; a first time for cycle touring and for South-East Asia and what an experience we had!
Two years without cycling (trip to Australia in 2002 and a working 'holiday' in 2003) made us realise how much we missed our bikes. So we made a plan for another trip, this time flying to Barcelona in Spain and cycling back to Arnhem, the Netherlands. It started halfway through July 2004; we arrived home on the 9th of August. It was definitely worth all the steep climbs!
