Great Service Is Great Business

10,197 km so far. We have been thoroughly enjoying our few days in Ha Noi, though we haven’t done many of the touristy things everyone recommends: no water puppet theatre, no visits to the temples or museums, no ghastly tour of the Hanoi Hilton. Instead we have been enjoying experiencing a more local Hanoi. Yoga, […]

Rocky Road, No Ice Cream

9,239 km so far. Yesterday afternoon’s road gave a hint of what would come today. We started out on the same bumpy chewed-up BMX course we’d gritted our teeth through for 20 km yesterday. Worst case scenario, this would last for about 90 km until we arrived in the outskirts of Haikou. Rattle Dem Bones […]

Bicycle Tourists Once Again

6,674 km so far. Today we left behind the shopping centres, the traffic, and the crowds of people who inhabit Xi’an. We are so happy to be venturing out of the city and into the countryside of China! Oh, I love how that sounds. Actually, this morning we agreed that we are both excited but […]

A Snail’s Pace: Cycle Touring Lago Trasimeno, Italy

The rain that was constant all night long had graciously stopped by the time we woke up. We decided that instead of the 90 km we biked yesterday we would make today a much shorter, slower travel day. We planned to only go 25km, slowly riding around Lago Trasimeno to a ferry which would take […]

Still No WiFi, But We Are Alive

Just a quick note to let you know we are alive and well, and camping in a farmer’s olive orchard in Tuscany. We haven’t had wifi in a few days, hence the radio silence. We may find Internet tomorrow and will have several days blogs to upload then. Ciao ciao.

On The Fifth Day We ‘Rested’: The Delights of Pitigliano, Italy

We set aside today as an off-bike day so we could visit with our old friends Luciano, Alessandro, and their families. Though we’d been calling this a “rest day”, not much rest was in store for us. For a start, last night was the night Italians “spring ahead” for the end of daylight savings, which […]

Finally, A Real Biking Day to Capalbio, Italy

We have been in Italy for four days and have so far cycled 15km. Today we plan to bike 40 more, from Tarquinia to the beachside campground where we are meeting our friends from Torino. I’m very excited to get on the road, to see how our mapping works, to see how we handle the […]

Ask and Ye Shall Receive a Very Long Answer: Tarquinia, Italy

Today was our first official day on the bikes! Hooray! First though, we had to get out of Rome. We had been warned that taking a train with your bikes was as confusing a thing as anyone had ever attempted, so after breakfast, Stephen went over to Termini to see what he could find out. […]

The Hand of the Hand of God: Meeting the Pope in Rome

This morning was rainy and dreary so we stayed inside, ate a leisurely breakfast and then sat in the lounge, writing, editing pictures, and planning our next move. I was happily working away until suddenly I realized we were sitting in a basement looking at my computer when I should be outside, experiencing Rome. Before […]
