You guys are awesome... you gave me what should have been the title of the blog "The Secret of the East Gate" - so much better. It has been awesome following your current travels through Malaysia, Tara and I plan to go there in the next year or so and your blog is such a great guide.

Jeremy, when I read your name I thought it sounded familiar - you are jeremyaroundtheworld who has been cycling the silk road. I was just reading your wrap up of your trip and have been following your blogs everytime I see them pop up. I have a good friend named Mike Roy who has been cycling South East Asia for about a year now and I have to say your blog and his are two of my favorites. I wish I had started following your trip sooner than I did but definitely look forward to going back and reading more of them... thanks for the comments!
