When we met in Coventry, we found we shared a common dream to cycle through Patagonia. Over time the start point of both dreams drifted northwards, and given various circumstances we felt it would be best to start our journey in Mexico given Sarah’s brother Nico was already there with his bike having meandered down from Canada, and the food was meant to be outstanding. The fact neither of us spoke a word of Spanish seemed a trivial matter at the time.
Before leaving the UK we cycled bits & bobs when we could (Northumberland (lots of castles), Isle of Wight (lots of hills), Islay (lots of distilleries)), hiding our dream from most, as it was just that, a dream. One day Sarah decided to leave her job, and from then on we slowly realised a path had been set in motion that we couldn’t escape from & didn’t want to (unlike Coventry). By Mid-January 2011 neither of us had jobs anymore, we’d sold the car, and made preparations to rent the house. Now we are here, in Mexico, ready to start the next part of our lives. It could be quite an adventure!
We will try and post when we can, keeping the map up-to-date of where we are. Double-click on the photos for larger versions, and feel free to leave comments. Our joint email address is email@example.com. Many requests were made before we left: thigh measurements, road-kill counting, but most importantly this blog, so here it is…enjoy!
