Bicycle touring around the world

Tasting Turkey for the first time on a bicycle

March 9, 2015

If you want to be happy, be. We are just getting started! Cycling over the bridge at the border between Greece and Turkey was symbolic. Riding away from Europe, finally crossing into a different continent. Finally going further away and into de unknown. Turkey is not a hidden gem anymore, and it might not be […]

11,000 Km, 11 months and 3€ a day by bicycle in Europe

December 4, 2014

331 days wild camping and pedaling over a bunch of European countries. Three hundred and thirty-one days since we quit our jobs in England and started our cycling adventure. No timetables, no plans, no return tickets. 11 months fighting with the elements: cold, hot, wind, rain, snow and hailing. Not knowing where we will end […]

Wandering around the World on a bicycle

Trying traditional gastronomy, being invited into their homes […]

Spain has diversity and sharp contrast between regions, but crossing the border to a new country, different language and unknown traditions are always welcome. Even when the differences are small like in this case. It might sound funny coming […]

Spain is hilly and huge to cycle around it!

July 6, 2014

We arrived in Spain, which meant we had to cross the Pyrenees! After one month cycling the flattish France we were not sure how we were going to handle it. We were afraid of the hard climbing, thinking how many breaks we would need and how many days it would take us. In the end, […]

Cycling the Atlantic coast of France

July 2, 2014

The second country of our world round trip by bicycle was France, and we arrived there in the middle of winter. The early months of winter had been very rainy, and it caused the whole country to be flooded. Before starting our trip we have been researching about French bicycle routes and paths, but in […]
