|The Old Bonus in Vietnam|
My plan came to me while in Myanmar and everything I’ve done since then has been with this goal in mind. After having the time of my life getting lost on the sandy back roads of pye a friend of mine at my school recommended watching “The Long Way Around” and reading “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.” I wanted to return to Turkey in the near future and the simple idea of riding back along the silk road came to mind. He told me it was impossible to do cheaply and so I took it as a challenge. This became my passion and I began devoting large amounts of my energy and time to research but soon I realized that he was right, it can’t be done cheaply. By that time I had moved to Vietnam and thought about illegal options or alternate routes but soon realized that the only way to actually do this reverse trans-Asian trip was to move to China and work for a year. So I did.
