Tokyo to Ho Chi Minh By Bicycle An autobiographical and reflective account of traveling from Tokyo to Ho Chi Minh on a bicycle.

14th-18th Nov - Tokyo to Osaka

About an hour before this photo was taken I'd been distracted by getting a secret view of the Suzuki motorcycle test track and watching bikes blast up and down the straits at speeds of over 150mph. They had padded the Amco barriers as the bike were traveling at a terrifying speed. I'd then wasted 45 minutes finding the campsite only to be told that it would be £20 to pitch my tent, an astronomical price considering it was under a wind farm. So I decided to plod on and get across the next bridge but then ended up in a construction site with the road along the coast blocked. Cycling around looking for somewhere away from the howling wind was difficult but I eventually found a small park and pitched up behind a hedge.
