MELBOURNE

After an exhausting 29 hours since arriving at Delhi airport I'm finally back home in Melbourne. Both I & the bike are well. So, this journey's over - what's left to be said? Nothing much other than Nepal to Delhi by bike is quite achievable: nose down, bum up, and just pedal (although admittedly I found it very hard going on some stretches of road). And there were some stunning sights and places along the way - Bandipur, Tansen & surroundings, Bardia National Park, the evocatively-named Siddhartha Highway, Lumbini, the Annapurna ranges - wow! and the Terai, despite being flat over much of its course, was a very interesting & varied landscape to cycle through.
