Skalatitude is part of the best bicycle touring blogs on the web.
Like cargo pants that spend too much time on the road, I was torn, crinkled beyond flat nominated for this best of this blog assignment. Surely, there are plenty of better travelers out there, plenty of real cyclists too. I am just a 40 year old solo female cycling around the world since 2009, 30 countries and the continents of Africa, Middle East, Asia, Oceania, Europe to date to be exact. It is true, I have met some wonderful people and I have laughed a lot but who hasn’t.
In fact, dressed like a ballerina at a Texas rodeo I traveled across Iran alone by bicycle. People say I must be courageous, but by far the most courageous thing I have done is diving into a pit toilet near Tibet in Western China and saving 1000’s of photos and video blogs for my camera carnival. Unsure of my let’s hear about it status among the other cyclists and travelers, I have dug deep into the laughter of the cluttered archives, accepted the nomination and done my best to come up with some answers.
