Why We Did It...

The option of being made redundant from work was too good to resist, and we quickly signed on the dotted line.  The only problem was we had to then decide what we would do once we had finally left gainful employment. 

Time wasn't an issue as we would have plenty, and we both wanted to see the world, so when Kat suggested a trip on two bikes it seemed like a good idea.  We thought of all the countries we most wanted to see, and as they were all in Asia a basic route soon formed and we decided to cycle to China and back .

Whilst the trip was for our own pleasure, it seemed a shame to go all that way without someone else benefiting. Part of the inspiration for Kat wanting to do this trip of a lifetime was the loss of her mother to cancer. It was a logical step to link the trip with raising money for Cancer Research UK.
