Leg 2 – India First Indian dinner – Vegetarian Thali Mosin is the one who took me round Mumbai. Thank you so much if you’re reading this! The beach in Mumbai Home of Mukesh Ambani – wealthiest man in India: 27 floors, 3 helipads, six car parks, ballroom etc… Haji Ali Dargah Mosque Apparently this walkway gets covered at high-tide Haji Ali Dargah Mosque Gateway of India Final view of Mumbai My first of only a few hot meals on the road – still not sure what it was or how I ordered it A beach in Goa.. Temple in Murudeshwar Inside the temple It’s actually quite impressive 2nd largest statue of Shiva in the world Leaving Murudeshwar A slightly unconventional road-block This often happened right outside my room.. Freshly shaved Kanyakumari – the Southern tip of India These guys cheered me up whilst battling a headwind They’re not homeless – they’re just on holiday… This temple is important apparently I decided against having a swim here… No plates in this establishment… (or cutlery) The salt farms were not very interesting Not sure you’ve got enough… Anyone in need of some hay? Apologies, I didn’t get many pictures of the monkeys A present from my parents.. I felt like a little kid at Christmas Puducherry / Pondicherry Puducherry was nice… The French influence is clear.. Me – Two weeks into India and looking a bit tired The t-shirt Red light means Go in India… Have you ever seen ducks being herded? Don’t they have wings..? A very enthusiast manager This did not stay for long… Not my choice of neck-wear Slightly more rural This is basically Indian Coca Cola.. It took me 3 weeks to realise they spell ‘thumb’ incorrectly There’s always someone staring.. When’s the baby due mate? That’ll teach you for driving on the wrong side of the road.. Are those flower pots? How nice… 1/4 of the way round! 1/4 of the way Round This is what I had to deal with whenever I stopped… And yes, I was sitting on the floor This beach was needed.. End of India! Finished the India leg – not really sure what to do with myself A ‘bike service’ in Kolkata Market in Kolkata I think this had something to do with Queen Victoria..

Tom, I presume all those images of your bike laden with bags are just for the photo shoot, you don’t seriously expect me to believe you are lugging all that kit around at those sorts of speed. Super human Tom from now on. Best of luck on your next leg. Looking forward to reading your next adventure. Cheers Fraser

Tom not sure what the leg shot is all about – tan lines, lack of hair or the slightly inflamed ligament down the side of your knee, or was this a shot before the stockings were donned?
