Hi there, welcome to our website. What you will find here, where we hope you find something of interest, is a collection of travelogues with photos covering the countries below. The majority of them are cycling trips as we are keen cyclists but we also like walking so there are a few of those in New Zealand and Nepal. Since taking early retirement in 1997 the trips have tended to get longer especially when we flee these U.K shores to avoid the worst of an English winter.

Update December 2010
