Welcome to our archive of photo videos from our travels around the world. Enjoy!

Indonesia, 2015

After Japan, we flew to Bali, Indonesia for a few days on the beach to go surfing before moving inland to the yoga-centric town of Ubud. We rented a house on the outskirts of town for a month and immediately fell in love with the area. Bali’s culture, scenery, food, and people have a way of quickly making you feel at home. So much so that you may never want to leave. We took some day trips across the island and also went on a three-day boat trip to Flores, Rinca, and Komodo islands. A visit to Komodo National Park was on our life’s list of things to see and it didn’t disappoint. Enjoy the video!

Japan, 2015

Family matters took us on a detour away from Europe, leaving our bicycles in Italy for six months, while we spent time back in the USA and then, since spring was coming, we decided to head to Japan for cherry blossom season. This video slideshow shows the best of what we saw during our six weeks in Japan. We spent our entire time in Honshu, making our way from Tokyo to Hiroshima to Kyoto, Koyasan, Nagano, and so many other places. From a sumo tournament to hot springs with snow monkeys and a Geisha-performed tea ceremony, this video has a bit of everything this beautiful country has to offer.

Morocco, 2014

We took a short ferry across the Strait of Gibraltar from Tarifa, Spain to Tangier, Morocco and spent a week in the ancient medina of Tangier. From there we cycled south through the Rif Mountains to Fes, the cultural center of Morocco where we spent several more nights. From Fes we cycled southeast across the Middle Atlas mountains, crossing our first 7,000 foot mountain pass, en route to the Sahara Desert. We then spent 10 days in Merzouga, at the edge of the desert, before hiring a driver to bring us back to Tangier for a 50-hour ferry ride to Livorno, Italy.

Western Europe, 2014

We crossed the Atlantic Ocean aboard the Queen Mary 2 from New York City, USA to Southampton, UK and then took a series of trains to Inverness to begin our trip south through western Europe. We wound our way down the length of Great Britain then took a ferry to Denmark to begin the continental leg of our trip. We cycled south to Hamburg, Germany then west to Amsterdam before turning south to Belgium and France. Our route in France angled back to the northwest as we passed through Paris en route to the Normandy coastline before turning south to Bordeaux and the western Pyrenees, where we crossed into Spain. From Pamplona we made our way south through the heart of the country’s numerous mountain ranges to Madrid, Toledo and Seville. We wrapped up our western European journey in Tarifa, Spain where we boarded a ferry to Morocco.

North America, 2014

We left Seattle, Washington on March 23rd, 2014 and headed across the northern USA to Minnesota and then turned north into Canada. It was still winter many of the places we went along the shores of Lake Superior, but we eventually met up with Spring along the Ottawa River in Quebec. We followed the rivers from Ottawa to Montreal and then up to Quebec City before turning southeast back into the USA. We reached the Atlantic Ocean in Maine on June 14th. From there, we angled back to the southwest and climbed over hill, ridge, and dale across New Hampshire and Vermont to reach New York before entering New Jersey, where our families live, through its rural northwest corner.

Oregon Shakedown Tour, 2013

Our last trip before heading off on our grand adventure was an 11-day dress rehearsal around the northwestern corner of Oregon. We began in Astoria, at the very tip of the state, and headed down the coast for several days before crossing east to the mountains not far from Bend and Mt. Bachelor. From there, we angled back to the northwest and made our way through Portland before returning to Astoria some 573 miles later. The trip wasn’t the lofty Vancouver to Tijuana trek we had originally hoped for, but we carried every single item we plan on bringing with us on our RTW trip and did our best to not over plan, despite Kristin having to be back at work the following morning.
