It was another bad omen when I discovered that the nursing home in Margate, Kent, where I was born in 1947, had been demolished. There have been many twists and turns in my life since then. After being recommended to do so, I became a Maths and Physics teacher in 1972, although my chief desire at the time had been to enter the Anglican Church. I had studied some theology at Keele University in Staffordshire, where I discovered that certain of my beliefs could not be reconciled with modern scholarship. I needed time to try and reach some acceptable solution and, therefore, continued in teaching. Finally, on reaching my mid fifties, I was given early retirement on health grounds. It was soon after this that I decided to go on the cycling tour. By this time I had become fascinated by certain Buddhist and other Oriental ideas and was interested to see how these worked in practice.
