Shownotes

I first had the pleasure of interviewing Victor in Episode 039 of the podcast. Victor had been on a bike tour to follow the footsteps of the famed philologist and orientalist Alexander Csoma de Koros, author of the first Tibetan-English dictionary and grammar book. Victor chose to use a bike to follow the route that Csoma walked, taking him through places such as Turkey, Kurdistan, Iran, through Tajikistan into the famed Pamir Highway, across the border into Wakhan Corridor, Pakistan and then finally into India where he finished his trip at the place where Csoma is buried in Darjeeling. Now, having finished his expedition and written a book, Victor has been on the move again, embarking on some pretty amazing cycling adventures.
