    Really love reading your blog posts, I’ve only ever done one cycling trip, but it was a leisurely trip from Lands end to John O Groats, we roughly made our own route and it took about 4 weeks, but it was amazing! this makes me miss it loads! hopefully get something lined up soon!

    Keep inspiring! :)

    I do miss all of that. Do enjoy having a kitchen now though. Being in one place and building relationships with people rather than cycling away from them all the time is also a huge bonus.

    But the life on the road is calling me back too. I’ll probably spend the rest of my life juggling the two different ways of living.

    Enjoy the hills round Austin before it flattens out.

    Happy travels

      Thanks Robbie and Kieran. The end of this adventure won’t mean the end of adventuring altogether, no fear!

    Well jel of all that time just to sit, think and watch the world go by. One reason why we loved Patagonia so much. We’re not able to be in London that weekend, mainly due to looking after little Daisy, our new family member!! But be sure we will be thinking about you guys and sending good vibes. Still think back to our little jaunt from Hampton Court fondly – including the glow worms – and look forward to our next cycle/walk/pint together.

    I would also seriously consider offering you a job at my school should you need one anytime in the near future!

      Hey Neil, good to hear you from you fella. A huge congratulations on the your new addition. Looking forward to meeting her in the not too distant future.

      We’ll be thinking of you outside the palace. Maybe we can Photoshop you guys into the photo?
