Hello! My name is Valery. I love sports, snowboarding, biking, mountain hiking and traveling. I have a dream. I want to ride around the world on a bicycle. But, probably, without preparation this is very difficult and expensive. For starters, I want to ride a bike all over Southeast Asia. On the way, I will be able to learn a lot about the nature of different countries, their customs and culture. During the trip I will be able to stop for several weeks and volunteer to teach the children English, help in shelters and eco-farms. I'm not only approaching my dream, but I can help many other people!

    I'm going on a trip in the fall, in October. It will be already cold in Russia and it will be almost impossible to ride a bicycle. Therefore, it will be logical to fly to Kuala Lumpur, and from it to get to Indonesia, the Philippines and East Timor. In Indonesia and the Philippines there are many places where volunteers are needed. There need help in the construction of eco-farms, the cultivation of products. Schools require people to teach English. I am also a professional electrician and can work on electricity.
    These four countries I plan to ride a bicycle for 3 months, then I will move north, home. On this path I think it will take another 4 months. I will not be home for more than half a year. I'm a little scared.
    What do you think about my plan?
