“I suppose that was what attracted me to the bicycle right from the start. It is not so much a way of getting somewhere as it is a setting for randomness; it makes every journey an unorganized tour.”
We wake up with the sunrise, refreshed and ready to begin the day.
We pack up camp to become nomads once again.
We cycle through the mountains, seeking solitude amongst the peaks.
We wash in the rivers, oceans, and streams, grateful for the water that we find.
We visit small villages, purchasing fresh produce and bread as we go.
We eat and cook, and cook and eat, more food than you could ever imagine.
We meet amazing people.
We see pain,
and we see joy.
We struggle as we push our limits:
dealing with the weather,
and taking the road less traveled.
We absorb different cultures,
we encounter different religions,
and we experience different ways of life.
We cook dinner as we watch the sunset,
ready to sleep wherever we happen to be.
Because you see, no matter where we are, our tent is home.
We fall asleep completely unaware of what tomorrow will hold, and we wake up with the sun just as excited as always to find out.

Just came along this blog. This truly amazing, love to see travel blogs with this perspective.
You have an excellent outlook on the world through your lens. Magnificent pictures, the ones in the Ladakh post are absolutely breathtaking.
As a wandering kid myself, I’m wondering where your adventures are taking you?
Greetings from Europe
Hello! From Istanbul my travels are going to take me to South America where we plan to spend the next year in the Andes!
I’m impressed again and I see, there is no typical day, or every day is unique!
It is! In some ways everyday is the same – you never know what it’s going to be like – but looking back it’s so clear how unique each one turned out to be.
Yes and it also your very special quality to meet fearless complete strange people without being perceived like a visitor at a zoo.

Beautiful photo and inspiring journey 🙂
This is so amazing! Your photographs are so powerful and inspirational! I do have one question though, how do you deal with language differences when you travel? Are you proficient in a few languages?
I speak French and now some Spanish, but most of the countries we went threw didn’t speak those languages so I became proficient in had signs 🙂 also, it’s astounding how, even in rural places, you can often find someone who speaks English.
Wow thats amazing! Thank you for your response! I am proficient in only spanish and fluent in english but am really interested in traveling!
