In episode 040 of Bike Tour Adventures I have the opportunity to talk to Thibault and Khánh (Lea), a French and Vietnamese couple. They are trying to do something good for the world by raising money for the NGO Poussieres de Vie, which raises money to enable young kids from poor families to go to school. The name of the project they have created for themselves is called the Non La Project, and they are now around 11,000km into their honeymoon bike tour as they cycle from France to Vietnam.
