4790 miles? What importance does that distance have? I imagine that for many people, none at all. Following a straight line, it's the distance between Spain and the centre of Mongolia, Alaska, or South Africa. Or from New York to Rio de Janeiro. It's also the distance from the north pole almost to Mexico City or somewhere in the centre of India. All of these distances are more or less irrelevant.
So what does this distance mean to me? Its the distance I travelled by bicycle around Australia and New Zealand in 2003. At last I've created this blog to share my trip with others.
