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 [...]

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 [...]

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

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

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

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 [...]

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 [...]

Eating Well in the East End of London

You’ve all heard how bad the food is here in England. Soggy fish and chips, boiled vegetables, and grey meat with insipid gravy. You’d think the only saving grace here was the beer. Believe me the beer is THAT good but the food is also very good. We have not had a bad meal in [...]

[VIDEO] Un-Packing The Bikes

One of my goals for this trip is to do some more video, which won’t be hard because I’ve hardly done any at all! What’s hard is actually doing it. I can’t tell you how long it took me to put this first, pathetic, creation together. I thank you if you manage to get through [...]

Shipping a bike.

After spending the winter getting all our cycle gear together we had to figure out a way to get the bikes to our starting point in London, England. There are basically two methods of shipping a bike; breaking it down and boxing it up, or sliding it into a bag. After researching both methods, and [...]
