– Location- London, United Kingdom
After a morning cycling as normal in the extreme Indonesia heat, my plans changed drastically. I spoke to my partner Naomi back in England and realised that the Coronavirus situation was becoming grave. I’d been watching it closely since January when I flew back to Bangkok and cycled through effected Malaysia and Singapore, but at each point, travel wasn’t restricted and life was continuing mostly as normal, with a few more masks and temperature checks.
This weekend, things changed, with the US banning travel and other countries following suit, closing borders and implementing lockdown.
I decided I needed to be back in England before I was stuck in an Indonesian town.
