Worst Travel Day Yet

WorstTravelDay

We left Ireland, and Europe, a little wistfully. Our final two weeks in Laytown had been perfect; filled with nothing more than early morning walks along the beach, afternoon pints at the small local pub, plenty of cat cuddling (well, as much as he would endure anyway), and meals that we actually cooked ourselves. It [...]

What’s Next: A Mexican Road Trip, An Overland Bus Journey, and Nicaragua!

YucatanRT

After four months of pedalling, eating, and drinking our way around Europe, it’s time to leave. Winter is coming to this hemisphere (even if it never really felt like summer anyway!) and, as we vowed not to spend another day in the cold and icy grip of Old Man Winter, it’s time to find the [...]

The Iconic Tower of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral

London View

It was our last week in London and we still hadn’t seen two of the city’s iconic sites so we hooked up with City Wonders for a guided tour of the Tower of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral.  Here’s the thing; I’m usually loathe to hire a guide but lately we’ve been feeling as though we’re missing out [...]

Eating Our Way Through Prague

Eating Prague Food Tour

We headed to Prague on a whim. The weather in Munich was crap so we checked the weather channel, and the train schedules, and decided that Prague was perfect for a last minute weekend getaway. I love that about Europe! Knowing absolutely nothing about Prague, I decided that the best way to get in on the secrets was to [...]

Pilgrimage to Andechs

Andechs

Climbing up through the forest we were grateful for the shade. The walk isn’t long – more of a token offering than a real pilgrimage now – but it is steadily uphill from the train station below. ***** There are plenty of places to find a good beer in Germany. Truth be told, we never [...]

Cycle Tour Europe: The End…But Not The End

072014_Munich-060

Our triumphant, if soaking wet, arrival into Munich; 78 days and 2440 KM after we started in London. It was bittersweet to reach the end. On the one hand it was a lot of work to be constantly on the move but, on the other hand, we really loved cycling through the countryside seeing parts [...]

Cycle Tour Europe: Finding Our Way

Cycle Tour Europe

Of the three formidable tasks in cycle touring – determining where to go and how to get there, finding a place to stay, and deciding what and when to eat – the first and second combined to be the most work. (Primarily because, when you cycle that much, you will eat just about anything at just [...]

Cycle Tour Europe: Rad & Reisen Cruise Review

Cycle Tour Europe: Rad & Reisen Cruise Review

Disclosure: We were guests on the Theodor Körner however this in no way impacted the fabulous time that we had. I just thought you should know. :) Our cycle tour Europe itinerary got a bit convoluted part way through. Itinerary is, in fact,  a bit of a strong word for what we actually had. What [...]

Discovering Amsterdam Through Our Stomachs

Discovering Amsterdam Through Our Stomachs

I think I’m in love with food tours. I have often said that walking tours are a great way to get a ‘lay of the land’ when we first arrive in a city; food tours take it up a notch by taking us into the cafes and restaurants, hidden treasures and hole-in-the-walls that make a [...]

Cycle Tour Europe: Not All Flat Is Not Created Equal

friction

It would seem that, after cycling through the hills of northern France, we should have been grateful for the flat lands of the Rhine Valley. I am here to tell you though that not all flat is created equal. As with everything in life there is always a hierarchy and flat has one too. Although [...]

Cycle Tour Europe: Let’s Get Started!

Holy cow!! We’ve been on the road for more than two weeks already. Never mind Let’s Get Started…let’s get caught up!!     We set off from NorthWood in northwest London on a somewhat dull day. We were undeterred by the weather though; excited to finally be on our bikes and on our way. Our [...]
