In Episode 034 of Bike Tour Adventures, I have a chance to catch up with Sam Johnson, an English adventurer that has gone from travelling around in a camper van to pedalling the globe. Having now cycled through 32 countries and over 52,000 km, Sam has experienced civil unrest, seen the worst in people, and the good that is prevalent in the majority of the world.
