Cycling from Singapore to the UK -Episode One [VIDEO]

Cycling from Singapore to the UK -Episode One [VIDEO]

Here is the first episode from our Singapore to the UK bike trip. After months of saving money and planning, it is a strange feeling to finally be starting the journey. We are both feeling so many different emotions, it is difficult to put them all into words.

SUBSCRIBE TO FOLLOW OUR JOURNEY

We are Adam and Lucia and we are a British couple that have quit our jobs to cycle from Singapore to the UK. We spent 2 years saving for a deposit for a house and decided that life is to short to spend our hard earned money on bricks. Instead, we are planning to spend this money on a life-changing experience and came up with the idea of a long bike trip. We flew to Singapore from the UK and started our return journey by bike on the 9 September 2018, Adam’s 30th birthday. We think the journey will take 18 months but who knows. We will be taking it a day at a time.

D-2 to D-1: Acclimatising in Singapore

D-2 to D-1: Acclimatising in Singapore

Singapore. Hot, humid, bustling, rainy and rich in a diverse mix of cultures and cuisines. It is definitely proving to be a perfect spot for beginning our cycle tour. We have three full days here in Singapore before we begin our adventure on 9th September – Adam’s 30th birthday. Three days in which to attempt to: recover from the jet lag (ugh!); acclimatise to the heat and humidity; sightsee and enjoy the delights that Singapore has to offer; finalise (to a point) our route, especially the route out of Singapore and the first few days in Malaysia; and pack our kit for the final time before we set off.

A post by Adam

After two years of saving, 9 months of meticulous planning, handing in our notices at work and selling most of our stuff, it feels surreal to finally be leaving the UK to start this epic adventure that lies ahead. Continue reading →

Pre-trip Emotions

A Post by Lucia

When I wrote this blog post, it was the last day of August; officially 4 days until we fly to Singapore. Just writing that sentence makes me feel overwhelmed! (Run for the hills comes to mind…!) It’s been 4 months since I last wrote a blog post, but those 4 months have been busy with finishing work in Cyprus (leaving my job as a primary school teacher), moving back to the UK, sorting and organising all of our belongings ready to leave them in my Mum’s cellar (thanks Mum!) for the next 18 months whilst we galavant across the globe.
