Many cycle tourers who ride Japan, generally only see a fragment of what Kyushu island has to offer with the port city of Fukuoka commonly being the start or end of their experience in this amazing county. If you ever travel there, make sure to spend time discovering the whole island. The peaks of mystical Mount Futago and the active volcano Aso, the charming town of Kitsuki and the onsen laden Beppu are some highlights for us - and these are only a fragment of what’s on offer. There’s lower population density and almost no foreign tourism so it’s a great place to understand local cultures too!

The Pamir Highway attracts an odd mixture of visitors... Dominated by cyclists, there are also Chinese trucks, local 4WD taxis, Mongol Rally teams and, in this case, a van full of eccentric Swedes who took any chance they could to get out and show off their birthday suits! Ahh, the unpredictability of the M41, take us back now. Although hold the full-frontal nudity please.

Laos has so many things to attract cycle tourists - quiet roads, small untouched villages, amazingly friendly people and views to die for! If you’re ever in SE Asia, make sure to ride the road from Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng - it is simply breathtaking!

For the first few days on the Pamir Highway out of Dushanbe, the roads are rough and covered in large rocks, but thanks to the verdant landscape there is generally some sort of company around the corner.

WE MADE IT! On the 1st of September, after almost 16 months on the road we rolled into Melbourne. It was an emotional day of celebration and relief. Climbing into bed that night and waking the following morning knowing that we didn’t have to pack our tent, or panniers, or get on the bike, was such an odd feeling. It took a few days for everything to sink in, and even though it’s been almost a month since then we still struggle to accept the monumental task that we undertook, as well as what the future will hold for both of us. Of one thing we are sure, though: this certainly isn’t the end of our adventure, and Rolling East has only just scratched the surface of this beautiful world. In the meantime, we will continue posting highlights of our trip and encouraging others to ride the world! Happy rolling, everyone!

With big rains come big puddles! After Ross rode through this flooded - and unexpectedly deep - underpass, drenching his socks and shoes, I decided I wasn’t going to do the same on this ugly winter day. I took a detour and met Ross 4km down the road, riding separately for the first time in 16 months. After spending so much time together, that gave us a bit of an odd feeling. Going back to normal lives will definitely be a challenge!

With rain forecast for the next few days, we had one last day of sunshine and couldn’t think of a better way to slowly roll than on the picturesque Great Victorian Rail Trail with its historic rail tunnels, smooth car-free gravel, surrounded by hills dotted with cattle (and even the odd echidna!).
As for today, we are back wearing our waterproofs - looks like Melbourne is going to give us a wet welcome!

“We’re goin’ to Bonnie Doon!”. A six pack of VB stubbies, dimmies and potato cakes in our belly, the smell of two-stroke and pure SERENITY! 
Part of Alessia’s integration into Australian culture had to be in the footsteps of Dale Kerrigan. (If none of this makes any sense to you, then watch the classic Australian comedy “The Castle”!)

On the way to Mansfield, the views of Mount Buller covered in snow are pretty awesome. The sun might be shining, but we are dreading the -3C in the tent tonight. At least there’s no wind around!

If you’ve ever travelled from Melbourne to Sydney and not stopped at the Ettamogah Pub then your road trip isn’t complete! This grotesquely, cringeworthy piece of Australiana is an icon, but  please don’t accept this as a typical Aussie pub!

The first sign to MELBOURNE! Our final destination is now so close. After ticking over 16,000kms yesterday we left our cozy Warmshowers hosts John and Monique, headed out of Wagga Wagga and hit the road towards the Victorian border.

That’s right folks, Rolling East are almost at the end of their London to Melbourne trip! What better way to spend the first day of spring than joining us either on your bike or with a drink in your hand when we arrive? 
We will be rolling at a leisurely pace from Lilydale to Federation Square starting around 9:30am, aiming to reach Federation Square by 3pm!

Stay tuned for more details!
