The last time I posted about Derek earlier this month, he was packing his Long Haul Trucker, getting ready for a tour of a lifetime. So far, he’s made it through Istanbul, Turkey, Iraq, Kurdistan and is currently in Kisumu, Kenya on Mfangano Island where he’s volunteering at the Ekialo Kiona Community Bike Shop. After that, he plans on exploring Rwanda by bicycle for a while before returning to Boston. Keep up with him and his captivating stories and photos at Horizons Oblivious (head’s up, you might get sucked in for a few hours).
Posted above is his personal hut on Mfangano overlooking Lake Victoria and the Kenyan mainland. Best of luck on the rest of your journey buddy, can’t wait to ride again when you’re back in the states!
