Cycling Across the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia
Checkout my latest adventure. I cycled across the World’s largest salt flat. The Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia.
Hello, my name is Buffer
I am an avid traveler and adventurer who loves nothing more than exploring the world.
As a passionate traveler, I believe that there is no better way to see the world than by embracing all forms of travel, whether that be by bicycle, plane, train, or any other means. Each mode of travel allows you to experience the world in a different way and see things that you otherwise would have missed.
From the quaint villages and rural countryside to the bustling cities and hidden gems that are often overlooked, travel gives you a unique perspective on the world and the chance to create unforgettable memories.
I hope to inspire others to experience the joys of travel. So, sit back, relax, and let’s explore the world together.

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 2
Because it’s the main artery connecting North and South Vietnam, Highway 1 isn’t the best road for bicycle touring. It’s busy and loud. There’s a constant barrage of honking horns, and the air is thick with the smell of diesel fuel. The only thing it had going for it was endless packs of other bikes in which I could seek shelter. Like a shy fish, I’d settle into the center of the school. The plan was to follow the highway South to Vinh, then turn West towards Laos.

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 3
I’m in Laos. I’m on the other side of the world riding my bicycle. Everyone I know and love is over 8,000 miles away. Most of the time it gives me a thrill to focus on this. Other times, I’m overwhelmed with loneliness.
Bicycle Touring Along the Mekong River/0 Comments/in Bicycle Touring, Travel /by Buffer
When I first entered Laos the children would shout “hello” as I rode by on my bicycle. Then one day, amongst the barrage of hellos I heard a single “sabaidee.” I didn’t think much of it, but over the next hundred or so miles the hellos slowly disappeared and were replaced entirely with sabaidee.

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 5
It was still dark, but I was racing through the city to make it to Angkor Wat before sunrise. I arrived with only minutes to spare, and it was brilliant. I then spent the rest of the day riding from temple to temple. There were busloads of tourists, but since I was on a bicycle, I easily avoided the crowds. My day in Angkor Wat was hands down the highlight of my time in Cambodia.

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 6
I found a route towards Bangkok that took off me of the main highway. I was feeling horrible, but the backroads offered some of the best touring of my trip. The scenery was spectacular. There were dirt roads that meandered through lush green rice patties and limestone towers. The route was peaceful and empty except for the occasional village.

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 1
I was so incredibly nervous. The traffic in Hanoi was intimidating. How the hell was I going to ride a bike through it? I left before sunrise on an early Saturday morning hoping to beat the crowds. It didn’t work. There were bicycles, mopeds, cars, buses, and people moving in every direction. Lights were flashing, and horns were honking. It was sensory overload.
