About us

Farewell!

Farewell!

After 24 years of married life, four children, a house, a dog, two jobs and two cars, we closed down our house and threw our children into the waters of life; setting off on a year long adventure with just our bicycles, a tent, sleeping bags and four panniers each.

Just the two of us.

Just the two of us.

This rewritten version of the private journal I wrote for family and friends at the end of each day in our tent, is intended for readers interested in joining us on our travels. On bicycle we traversed portions of the United States, stopping off in the Cook Islands on the flight from Los Angeles to New Zealand. In Asia we visited Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka, before proceeding onto Turkey, Greece, Italy, across the Alps to Austria and back to our home in Germany.
