A Photographic Tour Through the Life of A Cycling Nomad

They Are the TRUE Green Bike Riders!!! I Salute them..!

The Wandering Nomads

“I suppose that was what attracted me to the bicycle right from the start. It is not so much a way of getting somewhere as it is a setting for randomness; it makes every journey an unorganized tour.”

We wake up with the sunrise, refreshed and ready to begin the day.

We pack up camp to become nomads once again.

We cycle through the mountains, seeking solitude amongst the peaks.

We wash in the rivers, oceans, and streams, grateful for the water that we find.

We visit small villages, purchasing fresh produce and bread as we go.

We eat and cook, and cook and eat, more food than you could ever imagine.

We struggle as we push our limits:

20141205-181542.jpg20141205-182454.jpg20141205-181524.jpg

Climbing passes,

dealing with the weather,

      I wish you best of travel for your upcoming Nepal expedition… and No, I was not a part of the couple’s expedition in Nepal-India Himalayan trail…but I instantly felt connected when I saw them riding on the cliff roads, like wanderers, and it instantly made me reblog.

      You may follow Shirine Taylor on facebook, she uploads live pictures there..and later complies them into a blog on wordpress.

      Looking forward to your travel pictures:) My best wishes..keep riding!
