Warlier this month, Gay Travel Guru Julie Vu (Princess Joules) made her way down the coast of California for the last week with fellow guru Davey Wavey and thousands of cyclists in an effort to raise money and awareness for the AIDS Lifecycle. The largest event of its kind, this year, AIDS Lifecycle raised more than $16 million for HIV/AIDS charities.

Julie documented her journey in three parts, the latest of which sume up her experience quite eloquently. she writes...

"Thank you to everyone who has made my first time with AIDS/LIFECYCLE an unforgettable experience. I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I volunteered to be a part of this amazing journey. For the past 7 days and 6 nights I have traveled from town to town, city to city and have met so many people from all walks of life. I have learned so much and admire the courage and strength that these people have. Being on this journey has changed my life in so many ways that I could never even thought of. I want to thank you to everyone who has opened their hearts and shared their stories with me. You've taught me the real meaning of fearlessness, persistence and compassion. No matter how hard life gets, you stay strong and know that you are not alone. Ps, since I have been so inspired, I have registered for next year and my goal is to fundraise $10,000 to help those living with HIV/AIDS. No one should be denied the proper care they deserve. We are going to change the world."
