From Korea to the U.K.

Two intrepid bikers Tom McConville and Peter Hoyle, while teaching English in Korea, decided to forgo the plane ticket home and bicycle the 8500 miles instead.  

The trip was a real adventure which traveled through such regions as the Gobi desert, which contrary to popular belief, gets very cold at night.  In fact Tom got a case of frostbite in his little finger and they had to spend time breaking ice off the bicycles.  

According to Tom, if it had not been for a partner he would have given up and bought a plane ticket home to enjoy the comforts of family and friends much sooner.  Which is an excellent reason for having someone come along with on every adventure.
