Ducks ‘n’ Donuts

6447 km so far. Slept in, which is a luxury I am really enjoying and could definitely get used to. Not waking up when the sun comes blasting into the tent is a tangible benefit of sleeping indoors. And Jesse’s bed is so much more comfortable than our deflating sleeping pads. When we are in […]

Rebuild It And They Will Come

6447 km so far. After all the late nights, which we are really not used to these days, it was pretty hard to get out of bed today. So we didn’t. Until late afternoon we hung out (hanged out?) in the flat, trying to catch up on work. I feel like we should be up […]

New Worlds Born, Old Worlds Revisited

6447 km so far. Jane and I have lived in several different countries, both of us have worked in fields that have taken us on journeys far and wide, and we have an array of incredible friends in most corners of the world. Some of them have settled in beautiful country farm houses in rural […]

Love’s The Greatest Thing That We Have

6447 km so far. Since being in Berlin, Stephen and I have been spending quite a bit of time apart. After almost 6 months of being constantly in each others’ company, rarely having a real conversation with anyone else, this separation feels a little strange. You might think it would be a relief to see […]

Vorsprung Durch Technik, You Know

6447 km so far. These days we are hanging out in Berlin, visiting friends, organising our plans for the next leg of our adventure. This is a preamble to warn you that our blog posts over the next couple of weeks might not be as adventure-filled as they have been of late. Today we met […]

Letting Our Hair Down

6447 km so far. Since we’ve gotten to Berlin, I’ve just felt exhausted. Now that we’re off our bikes for a few weeks, finished with riding through Europe, and getting ready to go further afield, it’s time to rest. My body knows it, but my brain is having trouble settling down. We’re planning on being […]

The Wheels Are In Motion

6447 km so far. Plans for Asia are in motion, if slow motion. We took Berlin public transit today to the Chinese Consular building to enquire about visas, only to discover this was not where we needed to be to find out about Chinese visas. We then had to go to their visa department a […]

When To Say When

6447 km so far. Woke up this morning in our sweet hotel campground just before the alarm, with the wind whipping up a frenzy in the tree tops above our heads. Thinking that Stephen was also awake, I rolled over and started talking to him. “I wonder if they serve waffles for breakfast here?” “Why […]

Accident Waiting To Happen

6401 km so far. Some things are bound to happen. One of us was bound to get into an accident at sooner or later. Today, after 6,300 km of accident-free riding (apart from self-inflicted or partner-inflicted ones), it finally happened. But before we get to that, here are some pictures of the animals at last […]

You Are Who You Are

6327 km so far. When you’re following a well-established international bike trail, like the Berlin-Copenhagen route, there are few decisions that have to be made. You can just ride along, following the signs, not really being aware of more than each turn as it comes. However, the way we do it, we check the map […]
