Movin’ On

2872 km so far. And we’re off! Finally back on the road and it feels good. Despite the list of errands to run today, the rain to run from, and the busy road to ride on, today is a good day. It sure is nice to be back on the road, heading north towards Tallinn, […]

Loose Ends And Old Friends

For the last few mornings I’ve woken up around 6:30 am. This is pretty early for me, and I think it means that I’ve finally caught up on my sleep. Except that doesn’t explain why I’m still so darn tired! Since I couldn’t sleep, I forced myself out of bed and did a slow asana […]

Back To Kraków

Last night when we got home from dinner, Anna presented me with a death certificate for my great-grandmother. This was a breakthrough as it contained the official Polish spelling of my great-grandfather’s surname, which we always knew was slightly different from how we spell it. It turns out the Polish spelling of my name is […]

Homecoming Kings

Absolutely spectacular double espresso this morning at Karma Coffee Roasters in Kraków. It was made with their Columbian beans and was slowly pulled especially for me. Perfection. I went out early this morning just to go to Karma, so I could pick up some more beans before we left town today for a week. The […]

Finally, A Real Day Of Rest

Still 2802 km so far. Ahhh, a day off! While we didn’t exactly do nothing, we didn’t do much either. First we got new haircuts at Trendy Hair Fashion. We think they did a great job, and it cost the equivalent of $30 – for two of us. Then we sat in a tourist cafe […]

Taking Over Krakow With 3500 Cyclists

2802 km so far. This morning we went to visit the Karma Coffee Roasters roastery. It was closed when we got there, but after wandering around the Kazimierz district for a little while, we went back and found it open. Hurrah. Sadly, by then I was far too hot to order a coffee. I satisfied […]

Playing Tourist In Krakow

2788 km so far. Went out for pastries before everyone was up. At 7am Kraków was still sleeping, with just a few people out, some heading to the bakery like I was, some headed to work. The trams were running, but were mostly empty, and the city felt quite peaceful. Cycling Is So Much Easier […]

A Break From Biking

2788 km so far. Today marks our first day of two full weeks pretty much off the bikes. The idea of not riding anywhere for that long is freaking me out a little. It’s also a huge relief, as I’ve been feeling like we need a real rest from the packing and pedalling. We packed […]

Krakovian Nights

2786 km so far. When I woke up this morning my leg felt a little weird. I absent-mindedly gave it a scratch. That’s when something came off my leg and fell into my hand. It looked like a black seed of some kind. Except it was moving. Bed bug? Nope (Jane’s note: Thank god for […]
