The Bike – Video

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…

    Wow! you see a lot up close and can cover a lot of territory on a bike! I like the way you bought gas there…don’t you love the way they use everything? It seems nothing goes to waste and people are so creative because they have to be.

    Does this mean you didn’t have both hands on the wheel? I remember how you took pictures in Scotland…One hand on the wheel and the other taking pictures out the window. It also looks like everyone was driving fast.

    No hand signals, traffic lights or GPS? Looks like a great way to explore.
