In the school year 1990 – 91 Nancy and I took a year off from school to ride our bikes around the Indian Subcontinent. We started in Pakistan, went over the Khunjerab Pass into China, then back to Pakistan again. From there we headed over to India, Nepal, and Bangladesh with a side trip to some beaches in Thailand to recouperate from the frigid Annapurna trek. Upon our return to the US we got married. Our one-year trip went very well. Our adventures were many, but I’d say the ones that stand out were bicycling the Karakorum Highway, pedaling through the Rajasthani desert, trekking in Nepal, and spending time in Varanasi, India on the Ganges River.
