Bikes and Buddhas - A Journey through Asia

Based on a true story of a bicycle journey from Vietnam to Thailand, Saigon to Bangkok, but likes those films inspired by true events, which parts are true and which are fiction? You, the audience, must decide!

Our journey will take us to great cities and ancient temples, and we will meet wild animals of various shapes and sizes as well as a beautiful woman, an old monk, a grumpy old man, and a very bad busker!

Pete's a storyteller of some renown and his tale melds traditional tales with his own two wheeled adventures in far off lands.
