Visit Jaime and Andy’s fresh, new website for budding adventurers – The Young Adventurers’ Club – lots of ideas and inspirational stories.

Visit Education Through Expeditions for more inspirational stories.

Visit fellow Somerset cyclist Astrid Domingo Molyneux at www.cyclingfullcircle.com.  Love her photographs, and much of her kit is similar to my own – very re-assuring!

Visit fellow Englishman Myles Mellor’s blog at mylesaway.wordpress.com – caught up with him in Sofia as he rides from England to Istanbul!

Visit intrepid explorer, author, motivational speaker, around the world cyclist, and all-round lovely chap Alastair Humphreys at www.alastairhumphreys.com – I find his books a great inspiration on the road!

Ordinarily I don’t add links to places I’ve stayed, simply because they’d be too many – but I do make an exception for the Ramplas Hostel in Pieta, Malta. It’s a small family run place – just 12 beds – where you’re made to feel more like a house guest than a hosteller. Visit them at www.maltahostelaccomodation.com

Two great organisations I use to help meet people along the way, and find places to stay, are www.couchsurfing.org and www.warmshowers.com – well worth a look.

Need assistance with the Central Asian ‘visa jungle’? – I’ve found David and Alena at STANTours  – www.stantours.com – and Zaur at Baku Travel Services – www.azerbaijan24.com – very helpful.
