I originally joined Flickr as a way of storing my thousands of photos I anticipated I would take on my 25,000km around the world journey by bicycle and skateboard.


I now live in Sapporo, in northern Japan.

I am a Japan Society for the Promotion for Science Doctoral Research Fellow, doing my PhD in Behavioral Science at Hokkaido University.

My research blog is: www.robthomo.com

    "Robert is quite a determined person. I followed his travels, as he cycled from Japan to Switzerland. His website is full of details and wonderful pictures and videos, describing his trip. It's better than a Hollywood adventure movie, because it's real! Very harsh weather, camping, purifying water, language barriers - these are just a few of the many obstacles that he had to overcome. Robert, good luck in your future endeavors.
