On this episode, we talk all things bike-packing with Chris and Karam who cycled 2000km from Hanoi to Saigon. Find out how these two free spirits showed up in Hanoi, bought bikes for under $200, scooped some gear, and hit the open road! With the help of blogs and google maps, Karam and Chris went with the flow and enjoyed the freedom that comes with having a loose plan, taking it day by day and making up their route as they went along.
