Ghost written intro
Hello. I am Annette. I like doing stuff. This is a picture of me. It will soon be replaced with a picture of me looking all cool and biker-y. But for now you'll have to make do with this.
I'm going to ride a motorbike from Alaska to Argentina because it sounds like a hoot and I like places that start with the letter A. I went to Acton once and I had a great time.
I'm some kind of Kiwi/Canadian/Brit hybrid so I'm used to travelling. Last time I counted I had been to about a hundred countries or something. Even Wales. Anyway, I thought I'd try and liven up the experience this time by adding in the constant threat of imminent motorcycle-related death, though after learning to ride a bike in London this should be a doddle.
A friend sent a link to a site where you can put in all the countries that you have been to http://douweosinga.com/projects/visitedcountries
51 countries and 22% of the world. After my trip this should look like
71 countries and 33% of the world. According to the Century Travellers Club it is 56 countries so far www.travelerscenturyclub.org
