Mark writes the following about their recent Asia tour:

“We started our trip in China and rode overland through Sichuan, Yunnan, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia. There we flew to Banda Aceh and rode the full length of Sumatra (3000km). The full trip was 13,000km in 9 months. We defined our trip by seeking mountains rather than the flats and avoided major roads as much as possible. Sometimes this meant very indirect routes as we like to explore rural areas.”
