So, 8 days to go… Excitment and fear glore!Read more
So, the time finally came for us to leave our paradise in the Welsh valley. It was hard work, stressful and emotional.Read more
So, things have been really quiet around these parts lately. But I can assure you we’ve been working away behind the scenes getting everything ready for our trip.Read more
One of the most asked questions, we are given when I tell people about the tour is: are you working when you’re on your travels? When we tell people no, they often ask how have you managed to save enough money?Read more
Have we told anyone yet? What are their thoughts on our year-long trip? Well, I can’t really help you with that.. we haven’t told many people. Less than six months to our trip and only a handful of people know.Read more
So after the disaster that was Bala Lake, we thought it best to go on a smaller expedition. The Ruthin Craft Centre seemed like the perfect medium, 8 miles there, 8 miles back; half of the journey we did last week. I was feeling extremely optimistic, I mean I had to be right, the bike tour is happening I couldn’t bury my inadequate fitness and last weeks failure in the sand. Let’s face it, head on.READ MORE
Picture the idyllic scene; a little excursion through the wilderness, a secluded camping spot on the beach and a cycle home the next day. Clear skies, graceful landscapes, rolling hills and the occasional sound of a stream rippling and bubbling, over rocks and branches, in the background. The perfect weekend.READ MORE
So, I’ve always wondered how you start these things.
Do I start with saying thanks for joining us on our new adventure or do I simply start by just saying hi. Either way I’m excited you’re here and looking forward to the journey we’re starting on.
My name is Helen and my boyfriend is Ryan. We are two young professionals living in rural North Wales readily planning and preparing for a trip of a lifetime. The idea is that we’re going to cycle the world between September 2019-2020, starting in Japan and ending in Australia with one or two countries in between. Sounds simple right? Well neither of us have done a cycle tour and in fact, I haven’t cycled more than 30km so believe me the nerves and worries are there. But we’re optimistic and excited so that’s half the battle right?
Join us as we document the planning of this huge project and eventually blog about the highs and lows, our experiences and adventures and how life is on two wheels.
