The Joy Of Cooking

8,008 km so far. One of the hardest things about our trip is not having access to a kitchen. Stephen and I both love to cook and we both love to be able to eat whatever we can dream up. Our Trangia camp kitchen made a good substitute while we were in Europe, and the […]

Mmm. Meat.

7,150 km so far. After three weeks of riding through industrial zones, smog, rain, and dirt, it is laundry day! Almost every piece of clothing we have is now with the hostel’s laundry service, which is one of the luxuries we allow ourselves. It is quite nice to know that by the time we are […]

Yoga Days Are Great Days

6,589 km so far. Today I taught yoga at YamaYoga in Xi’an. The first half of our day was all about yoga. To begin with, we went to the studio to practice. The studio has a few spaces on their schedule that are open practices, meaning there is no teacher, the room is just made […]

Only Losers Take The Bus

As Stephen mentioned yesterday, we decided to take public transport yet again, this time to get to Xi’an. We knew we’d have to resort to bus or train at least once more to make our November 9 deadline in Shanghai, and we are hoping that the industrial smog-choked lands we avoided by taking the bus […]

Terrible Twos

6,491 km so far. We both wanted to be at the train station quite early this morning to look for our bikes, but we didn’t get to sleep until past 2:30am, so we slept in and then were slow getting going this morning. Since I have little faith that our bikes will be at the […]

First Impressions Of Beijing

In an effort to combat early-onset jet lag, we spent the entire day walking. And walking. And walking. We were gone from our hostel for about 11 hours. Whew. My legs are tired. Also, as I write this, the jet lag is hammering my brain. All I want to do is crawl back in bed […]

Half A Year and Half A World Away

It is six months since spring was springing and we arrived in Rome to begin our journey. We have travelled almost 7,000 km through 15 countries to end up here, in Berlin, as winter creeps into the city. We hope to find out in the next 24 hours if we have passed the next hurdle, […]

It’s Not All Drug Dealers And Graffiti You Know

Since we’ve been in Berlin, our mornings have been almost indistinguishable. We wake up late and then sit in bed reading, working, and drinking various caffeinated beverages. When we first got here, these mornings would stretch until 10 o’clock or so. As the days have worn on, and the sun has made fewer and fewer […]

Bike. Camp. Cook. The Going Slowly Cookbook.

http://www.goingslowly.com

I’ve just discovered that Tara from Going Slowly, who was a major inspiration for our trip, has finished writing her cookbook: Bike. Camp. Cook. Reading about the meals she and Tyler shared on their 2-year bike odyssey convinced me that we could eat well while on the road. Please support their Kickstarter campaign, so I […]

Pot Kettle Black

6447 km so far. Our bikes were due back at the shop today for the second round of tune-ups, so despite the cold, rainy day, Jane and I dutifully headed out into it, thankful the bike shop is only a 10-minute ride from home. We spend most of the rest of the day curled up […]
