A 10 Year Bicycling Expedition!

Pagoda bridge in southern China west of Guilin

   An extraordinary ten year journey, bicycling solo through thirty different countries, spanning four separate continents, seeking and fulfilling the life-long dream of exploring the great unknown. All the images published here in "EarthlyPhotos.com" are a photographic testimony of this decade-long, biking expedition.

   From the Buddhist world of China, Korea, and Southeast Asia, to island hopping around the South Pacific and Caribbean.  Pedaling & pushing myself up majestic, but rugged mountains, stranded on isolated beaches waiting for the tides to change, cutting through dense tropical rainforests praying for a patch of sun, circling icy glaciers and snow-capped volcanoes, struggling to survive the drought ridden desert lying just east of the Andes; all the while, experiencing new cultures, languages, foods and a world full of curious and uniquely different people.

       Welcome to an unforgettable world of travel images!

Chasing Headhunters

Roads all gone, only unmarked trails remained, all leading to a web of isolated tribes of fierce Headhunters.  No maps, GPS yet invented, no food, nor water, the first cyclist ever was about to be dropped into one of the world's 'Last 'Unknowns' . . . Read more
