Our 12 Favourite Coffee Roasters in the Entire World

15,720 km so far. As I sit here enjoying some of the best coffee I have had on my travels, I am thinking back on all the great experiences we have had thanks to my coffee addiction. Whether it was getting off the train in Helsingborg, Sweden just to visit Koppi, searching out the elusive […]

Balinese Zen

15,706 km so far. Getting around Bali is not a walk in the park. I had set up a meeting for this morning with the owners of Desa Seni, an eco-village resort (their name means Art Village), not 30 km from where we are staying. Because traffic can be crazy and the hills are steep […]

Last Day On The Road

15,706 km so far. Maybe it was the terrible sleep we both had last night, with wild dreams caused by overly rich food too close to bedtime. Maybe it was the exhaustion from one too many tough rides in a row. Maybe it was the heightened aggression of the traffic. Maybe some planet was in […]

Invisible Businesses

14,974 km so far. I should be used to this by now, after 8 months in Asia, but I’m not. For some reason, I still expect that cafes will be open, that shops will be easy to find, that people will answer phones. Not so in Asia. Coffee Talk At breakfast this morning our guesthouse […]

Non-Stop Gridlock

14,958 km so far. Despite the mess of cars, taxis, busses, and scooters we had seen last night, which one blogger described as 360 degree traffic, this morning we rode our bikes across the city. We decided the guesthouse we had checked into last night was too far away from the train station and the […]

In The RAW

14,937 km so far. Since we are now in Kuala Lumpur we have been doing what we do every time we get to a city: chores. We had managed to get a load of laundry done already so didn’t have to worry about that today, but we are behind on the blog, editing photos, workshop […]

Bookends

14,506 km so far. I was awoken at 2:00am by a great shaking. The bed, the walls, it seemed the whole world was vibrating. Also, there was a lot of… bouncing? And yelling? Wait, that didn’t seem right. I’ve never heard an earthquake yell before. It turns out it was just a group of young […]

Heading Inland

14,415 km so far. It’s about time we see a part of Malaysia that isn’t an island, so we are headed inland. To get off Penang we cycled over to the ferry dock, and rode onto an old-school car and passenger ferry. Since most people also arrive on the island via this ferry, they only […]

Travellers Don’t Know Where They’re Going

14,311 km so far. As you know, we don’t spend a lot of time checking things off a great Tourist To Do list. Tourists don’t know where they’ve been. Travellers don’t know where they’re going. Paul Theroux Just so. Still, since a city is more than its cafe and restaurant scene (according to guidebooks and […]

Not So Fast

14,311 km so far. The Republic Of Indonesia requires we apply in advance for a visa if we want to stay for more than 30 days, and since the country is VERY long, and we are cycling, we are going to need more than one month to properly visit it. Our one goal today was […]
