In Episode 027 of Bike Tour Adventures I connect you with Nima Khalkhali, an Iranian-Canadian from Vancouver, B.C. that recently spent 5 months travelling through Europe and north-Africa. Having previously done some bike touring and having also done some hiking excursions, Nima brings a lot of experience to this conversation. In this episode we talk about the European part of his bike tour and he shares some tips and tricks that helped him cycle all the way to the top of Norway and then to the bottom of Italy.
