Hong Kong: It’s been exactly three weeks since I completed my Euro cycle and two weeks since returning home. I am only now beginning to fully appreciate the magnitude of this expedition. I’ve been on a bike only twice since returning from Turkey, am still trying to moderate my caloric intake, and continue to cringe whenever I hear a dog bark. It was a helluva journey, but there hasn’t been a day — at least not yet — that I wish I were still pedaling across Europe.
Here are some of my favorite impressions from the second leg (Innsbruck – Istanbul) of TransEuropa 2011. Some of these photos have not been previously published.
