Slow Ride Home

In our hostel in Wadi Mousa we met this really cool Aussie named Ben, who unfortunatly we did'nt get to spend much time with. What we did find out about him was that he had a blog called the Slow Ride Home, documenting his motorcycle journey from London, England where he had been living and working home to Australia!!! Amazing!!! He gave us his address to check it out, and so far he has seen so many different places with so many more to go. We chatted about his upcoming trip to Iran and what else he had planned on the 13 month or so journey. I suggest checking out his blog because as our NZ counterpart Hamish would say "This guy is a LEGEND!"
-Over and out, more posts to come, D

    Hmmm...would have been cooler if he was Hungarian...oh well...can't all be that awesome lol
    Is that trunk welded on his bike?
    That would be an awesome way to get around!
