Europe: May-December 2015
On April 28th, 2015, we left our home, possessions, friends, and running trails behind in Portland, Ore. and headed to Seattle, WA for before embarking on a flight to Oslo, Norway, where we would begin our European cycle adventure. Over the following eight months, we covered some 4,200 miles, almost entirely by bicycle (we took a couple trains and ferries here and there), as we made our way to Athens, Greece, by way of the Balkans and Turkey.
Our journey took us through the following 16 countries: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia,Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Greece.
As our European journey began to wind down, we realized that we had spent much less money than we had estimated and were not yet ready to head back home, so we decided to take on South America.
South America: January 2016 – April 2017
Flying from Athens to Ushuaia, Argentina we began our tour at the end of the world and over 15 months we cycled through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia.
