Yes! Touring is awesome. Nothing better than taking off for a while on your bike, carrying everything you need. You can go where you like, when you like, your only limit is how far your legs can pedal. www.crazyguyonabike.com is a great site with info and hundreds of touring journals.
I've got a Long Haul Trucker that I'm planning to cycle from Japan back to the UK in a couple of years time.
