How I started

I plan and hope to be fortunate enough to visit all continents and countries in due time. Obviously a hand full of countries are currently impossible to visit because of wars and other problems but I still hold out that given enough time, maybe decades, things will clear up and I can visit someday. This may raise some eyebrows but I always think about the generation that would have told you it would be impossible to visit Germany or Japan. Also, Antarctica, Greenland, and the North Pole are not especially bike friendly places so I doubt if we visit unless I win the lottery or some other unforeseen opportunity arises.
The longer I bike tour and travel (9 years at
the time of writing)
the harder it is to describe my future plans and the less I actually plan ahead.
The planning that does remain revolves around when and where is the best weather
for cycling and camping, how long my tourist visas allows me to stay in each
country, and what countries I can afford given the varies exchange rates with
the US dollar. For these reasons my around the world bicycle touring
plans have evolved into the list of places (below) I have not yet visited but
still want to see.
I have used several brands of bicycle panniers and
highly recommend Ortlieb.
