Remember: "Be the change you wish to see in the world"  

-Mahatma Gandhi.  

Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  
You have the power within you to create the life you want to live.  You have the power to shape the world around you just by who you are being, and how you are communicating. The law of attraction, one of the fundamental aspects to living a life by design, explains that everything that is created in the outside world is the result of what takes place internally. Being the change you wish to see in the world starts with taking full responsibility for everything that is happening in your life. 

I went to the Inspiration zone - and went through pain to experience a great place in my life.

Isolated, beaten up, visited and rescued: Mongolia Crossing was awesome!

See something different in front of you - Make all your efforts create something that can't be taken away from you. make your adventure your reality and journey onward friend.

One day you are going to own the moment.

Nothing is impossible, you've come too far to quit.

Trekking to the summit of Seoraksan National Park, South Korea (I didn't make it the first time!)

You've got to overcome to grow. Keep pushing the limits. 

Only those who risk going too far can possibly know how far they can really go.

The first day is always the hardest and the happiest day of your changing life in a ever changing world.

The beginnings. Cycling in South Korea.

Even when nobody is watching you, there is a chance to change into who you are trying to be.

Crossing the Himalayas
Riding and pushing through, don't quit because there is nothing that can support your dream when you don't make it happen yourself. 

That's just one day in your life. You cannot give up if you can get up. Make it happen, don't worry about what happened to you in the past, because the past is the past. Worry about what you are going to do about it to make a change. If you want to succeed, you will need to work at it, day and night strive for it. And life will be good.

They said you wouldn't make it. They said you were no good. 
You show them what you are really made of.

The Five Saints (Altai Tavn Bogd National Park, Mongolia). 
Try Microadventures before the bigger adventures.
Start close to home and adventure, then branch out to explore for a few days.

The difference between Winners and Losers is simple, Winners are losers who never quit, they keep trying and learning through their mistakes. Losers are those who criticize others and do nothing to improve themselves. Don't look back at quitters, look ahead to your dream.

Never quit. Take your time becoming who you want to be.

Imagination paints your own pictures, you live them and recreate them on adventures. 
You can dream this, you can do this. Follow your own path through life.
Met the Mongol Rally racers at the Russian border. That was awesome. Two roads meeting up.

Even strangers on the road share a dream to live their lives under sunsets free of pain and suffering, If you want to make it happen in your life, you must go through the pain to experience the success. Nothing comes from nothing, effort must be constantly applied to reach your goals. 

Stand on top. Become the person you know you can be. Be better than yesterday by becoming the person you see yourself as through persistence and courage. This requires going against your enemies, your mind can be the first enemy to face on the long road of becoming a champion. Overcome your fears, and learn through experiences of failure. One day you too, will learn to stand on top and be the best you can be.

Keep pushing forward. Never turn back on your dreams.

What's out there can change who you are. Be the change. Pursue it for your lifetime.
No mountain is high enough, no road rough enough, no day long enough. Enjoy the pain, feel glory.
Friendships make the world go round. Open your heart to others around you. Appreciate them.

Finally a special poem about life's experiences and what they can give you. This was hanging on a picture frame in my childhood home for many years, as I brewed over problems I faced at the dining room table, I could always look up and find some inspiration, and some solutions. Enjoy this...

Desiderata - a poem by Max Ehrmann 

Desiderata (Latin: "desired things") is a 1927 prose poem by American writer Max Ehrmann (1872–1945)

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its shams, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.


Make everyday you live the best day in your life.

Between 1994-1998 - Brian completed his own adventures with motorcycles. His motorcycling marathons took him across the United States and central/western Canada, while traveling solo over an astounding 24,000km in 60 days! Brian endured 900 mile/1300km average days in the motorcycle saddle and apparently loved every minute of those adventures.

Today, he has given up motorcycle adventures altogether, but finds an outlet for his enthusiasm in outdoor recreation while bicycle touring and micro-blogging about those experiences on his mountain bikes.

While employed as an English teacher in South Korea, Brian has became an advocate for bicycle touring on his mountain bikes. The Korean-World blog originated from those small adventures in Korea, now expanded to cover his recent trek down the TransMongolian highway to the Gobi Desert, cycling 900km east through the Khentii grasslands and in 2012 crossing Mongolia in 45 days, 2500 kilometers 1553 miles. HimalayasX expedition Brian previously cycled across western China, the Taklamakan Desert, the northern Himalayas of East Turkestan Xinjiang/Uyghur Autonomous Region, the corrugated back roads and mountains of Kham Tibet. Brian successfully completed his 2011 mountain bike expedition with 3200 kilometers / 1988 miles unsupported, on/off road MTB adventure cycling.
Brian has completed his second mountain bike journey, MongoliaX expedition - Crossing Mongolia 2012, an unsupported mountain bike MTB expedition across 2500km of Outer Mongolia from Ulanbaatar to Altai Taven-Bogd National Park bordering China, Russia and Mongolia.

In 2013, as a sequel to a trilogy of cycle tours, Brian enjoyed a more leisure bicycle tour onboard his Koga-Miyata World Traveller seeing the northern tier of the United States and western Canada covering 3400 kilometers / 2000 miles in 30 days. This North American cycle tour was called Totherocktour. Enjoying the adventure of bicycle travel and every great conversation started while traveling on the road - has refueled his inspirations to cycle around the Earth. In 2013, while he cycled solo from the Great Lake State of Michigan, United States to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. He weaved through local communities and reconnected with friends, family and community after spending almost a decade in Asia.

Brian is now supporting several non-profit foundations through expeditions: IDEAS Foundation of Canada IDEAS is the acronym for Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society which supports the IBD community, those suffering from IBD-inflammatory bowel disease, also known as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis.

The second non-profit foundation is ETE.ORG - Education Through Expeditions, UK which supports educational outreach programs inside schools around the world. ETE connects explorers with students in the classroom, through an interactive online program in development (Beta).

Brian is researching support for a 18000 kilometer bicycle expedition across the Americas: North, Central and South America - ONE -Arctic to Argentina
