Jilly Sherlock is not your average woman. This amazing woman is living on 5GBP per day as she bicycles solo from the UK to China. In her own words Jilly explains the reason she is on her solo bicycle journey:
"Being a notoriously unlucky flyer - hijacked, volcanic ash victim, aborted landings, cancellations, not booked on flights, wheels falling off planes, struck by lightening - and also a non-driver I thought it would be an idea to head off east on my bicycle.
Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time..."... See More
In his own words Mark Moxon explains the beginnings of his travels:
"In early 1995 I visited a friend who had just bought a new house. I remember it quite clearly: at the top of the stairs he had a perfectly formed bathroom in which I had what can only be described as a religious experience. The bathroom was one hundred per cent peach. It had a peach-coloured bath, a peach toilet, peach tiles on the wall and a peach basin on which sat a bar of peach-scented soap. Hanging on the racks were fluffy peach hand towels that neatly matched the peach carpet below, and sitting on the windowsill was a bowl full of peach-coloured potpourri. I realised then and there that if I did not do something pretty radical, I was going to end up with a peach bathroom all of my own, and the thought filled me with dread."... See More

In her own words - "My name is Julia Dimon and I'm a hard-core travel junkie. My addiction has taken me all over the world to more than 80 countries across six continents and I'm only in my twenties. I've lived as a Buddhist monk in Korea, battled through a survival course in the snake-infested jungles of Belize, jumped off one of the world's highest towers, toured genocide memorials in Rwanda, made lip-plates with the Mursi women of Southern Ethiopia, braved radiation in Chernobyl and spent a night of torture in a Latvian prison. Take it from me, travel is highly addictive. It doesn't come with the Surgeon General's warning, but it should.

So when he sees the gamble, manipulations and lies he follows the old old dream, sets out for this journey that is called life, to explore the world traveling overland..."
