It always amazes me how little spare time you have when you’re travelling. Surely not working should equate to lots of spare hours in the day. Maybe we are doing it wrong but our days are really busy. From the minute we wake up, we start – breaking camp, packing everything away, breakfast, making a […]
We have a plan! After much deliberation and weighing up all the options and variables, we came up with this: head along the Loire river to Saumur on the EV6 then follow the Vienne river down to Poitiers, next cross over to the EV3 and head down to Angouleme.

The train and ferry journeys to France were thankfully quite uneventful but did highlight just how much stuff we have and how heavy it is … and/or just how feeble I am having spent two years behind a desk. It was a very long day of hauling panniers and bikes on and off trains, across […]

This is the last ‘Etape’ for France as we headed up into Belgium after this. In this video we are going along the Canal de Garonne and into the Ardennes region …
Since I last wrote, we’ve been to Switzerland. From Strasbourg, we carried on down the Rhine to Basel and then gathered all the pioneering spirit we could muster and set out to tackle our first Alpine pass. It was hard … bloody hard … but we made it over the top. The electric motors certainly […]
