One year on and the hair is longer, the legs are longer but the seat and helmet still fit so time to get on the road again! This time Rose will be crossing India from the Bay of Bengal to the beaches of Goa. 'India holidays bike!' says Rose so let's go!

Following on from Rose's first adventure aboard the Windrush (see below), her next trip is to cross Cambodia by bicycle!

Meet Rose Harvest, born in February 2010. Follow this blog and find out about her adventures!

Preparations begin...

(viewed 398 times)
After a year at home in Manchester, currently 1.4 degrees and chilly, preparations are well underway for five weeks in India. We are abandoning the diy (but note the lovely new oak floor in the hall) in favour of tiger reserves, ancient temples and general adventuring across the 16th latitude.

We're all very excited to be writing the blog again, and looking forward to sharing our trip with you all.

Back home and Rose's big day!

(viewed 584 times)
We got home just in time for Rose's first birthday and found the house already decorated! Thank you! Rose picked up a runny nose just before we got back but she didn't let it bother her. She had great fun opening all the cards and presents and was really pleased to see lots of familiar faces.

Bangkok, again.

(viewed 447 times)
Having sold the bikes in Phnom Phen we decided to only spend a day in Bangkok before our flight. Just long enough to indulge in some Bangkok delights. We bought T shirts, drank beer and all went for a Thai massage.

Crossing the border

We could tell we were nearly back in Thailand as everything seemed to be getting more crazy. Rose met some wild Russian lads from Siberia and distracted the officials as some Thai merchants sneaked by.

Our last morning in Cambodia began with thunder, lightning and heavy rain! Very unseasonal. It was quite refreshing and nice to get a glimps of the country during the 'rainy season'. Our bus leaves for Bangkok at 11.30am and we are looking forward to returning home but also sad to leave Cambodia. Rose used the last hour to make even more friends!

On the Lonely Planet tour

(viewed 580 times)
Rose was a true 'baby tourist' today, she followed the Lonely Planet's itinerary for a day out along the river and visited the abandoned Pepsi plant, a crocodile farm, rice-paper-making villagers, and a historic Khmer house.
