Hi, I'm cycling around the world. So far 19000 miles and 4 years on the road. Ask me anything!
Hi, my name is Thomas Andersen. On the 2nd of October 2010 I left Denmark by bicycle. So far I have cycled more than 31000 km (19000 miles) through 25 countries on 5 continents.
I have cycled through Eastern Europe learning all about the local beer, I have been chased by dogs in Turkey. I have cycled through Syria before the war began. I have been a celebrity in Malaysia, and worked on a huge cattle station in Australia.
In late 2013 I flew to Ushuaia in southern Argentina and I'm now cycling north towards Canada. So far I have made it to Ecuador (it's very hot and humid here).

I think I will be back in Denmark in a year from now.
It has been an amazing ride where the highlight has been meeting so many incredible and friendly people - and I have seen a few beautiful places on earth too.
I'm looking forward to share my experience here on the Reddit community. Will do my best to answer your questions.

Best wishes from Ecuador, Thomas
EDIT: Thanks a lot for all the great questions! And not at least all the offers to stay up in the US and Canada. North American hospitality seems amazing. I will come back to you shortly. Thanks again, it was my pleassure.
