Welcome to our Blog!
The reason for creating this blog is outlined in the page 'ABOUT US' so I won't go over old ground.
It's now about 11 weeks or so until we embark on "the ride"  So much to do and so little time!
In a nutshell, these are the things we have either done or are doing at the present:
Putting all our belongings into storage so that we can rent out the house.
Have sold the 4WD and bought an old ute - better for moving and the family can make use of it while we are travelling.
Trying to get all the little jobs finished round the house so it is in A1 condition for the new tennants.
Looking into Travel and Landlord insurance, Visa's and innoculations - ouch!
And Tomorrow we will be investigating our flights to London!!!!
Its getting exciting and a little bit scary.......
There will not be too many entries until we are actually cycling but if there is something worth blogging about we will make an entry.....keep tuned!


  1. Just eleven weeks before you head off on your tour? That is SO exciting!! And it seems to me that you are extremely well organised, much more so than most tourers when they set out.

    My tour from Cairns to Melbourne is coming to an end in a few weeks. It will be great to continue to live the tour through you guys and your adventures.

    You're going to have a fantastic time, probably with the occasional hardship (ummm, headwinds spring to mind) but mostly great times.

    Best wishes

  2. Well, glad I can keep updated with your travels. No doubt this blog will become more interesting in about 12 weeks!!! lol xx

  3. Have fun guys, shit you are going to have sore arses!
