Welcome to Freewheeling across the Himalayas
WELCOME TO FREEWHEELING ACROSS THE HIMALAYAS
My name is Celine Soulard and on July 2010 I will embark on a 7 month cycling journey from Tajikistan to Nepal. This adventure will take me to some of the most challenging and beautiful roads in the world. I am also undertaking this journey to raise funds for the Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation in support of the Ladakh Project (Health inc). I encourage you to subscribe to my blog to follow me in this great adventure. I will share with you in this blog stories and photos on a regular basis and hope to inspire you to contribute to the Ladakh Project.

Back to Canada.....for now!
I arrived in Calgary after 80 hours of “hellish” travel and it was rather strange to be home “so soon” but I see it as a temporary stop! This was my second long cycling adventure and will not be the last! I have many more routes in mind and riding my bike is for me the best way to travel. During my last few days in Nepal I started to dream of a “proper” around the world cycle touring trip...it is only a matter of time. In Nepal I also realized how much I like cycling on my own. For now I will enjoy time with my lovely dog Tashi, put my studded tires on my bike and get my touring skis out to enjoy the Canadian winter! Tashi and I started 2011 with a great day cross-country skiing in the Rockies...and of course I have to find work...if you know of anyone looking for an accountant or SAP Security specialist send them my way :-)
I will give myself some time to settle before getting back to you with my final thoughts on the last 6 months of travel as well as future projects but for now you can visit my Blog to see pictures and stories of my last few weeks in Nepal.
I want to thank you all for your support and encouragement. I have raised nearly $3000 for the Ladakh Project which is 66% of my initial goal. I planned on doing few more activities locally to reach my $5000 goal. I will let you know of future slide show/talks in the future. If you haven’t contributed and desire to do so it is still possible by going to my Giving Page.
I hope you all had a great Christmas and wish you all the best for 2011.
