Ben Around the World Diary – Day 114 – 31 May 2019

– ODO- 14592 – 14763km
– Location- Gawahati, Assam, India
– Weather- 21-30 Rain

It’s days like today where the scale of the trip really sinks in. After an early stop and big Dominoes pizza in Gawahati last night I got a short nights sleep, kept awake by my first access to WiFi in a week. I’ve been making great progress towards Myanmar. Days rolled into one as I crossed state lines. At the hotel I planned my route out all the way to Yangon in the south of Myanmar. As I tapped in the directions into Google Maps the image zoomed and refocussed. The distance I’ve travelled so far from Kathmandu seemed very small in comparison. I know also that I have many more mountains to climb.

The rain keeps the road cool but puddles keep me alert. Checking back over my shoulder before moving out with a wave. Closer to town the traffic was the busiest but not so much as the day continued. The fields and forest are an abundance of green with all the rain. Now after a late night and a long morning I feel like sleeping not writing.


Hi, my names Ben and I’m traveling around the world with my bike, my paraglider and my laptop. Along the way I’m sharing the highs and lows of the life on the road. And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
