Aurangabad, Maharashta

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 11 Mar 2019 | By dawnandmark | Views [111] | Comments [6]

Great flight and transfer from Mumbai. Aurangabad is a city surrounded by countryside and hills. The main reason for visiting is to explore the Ellora cave temples. These are magnificent temples hewn out of the rock face. There are 34 and they date from ... Read more >


INDIA | Fri, 8 Mar 2019 | By dawnandmark | Views [118] | Comments [5]

Where to start with Mumbai! The initial feeling is pretty overwhelming, a total assault on the senses. It's noisy with the traffic and the continuous beeping of horns, you don't know where to look first as everything is so different, and the smells range ... Read more >

Hampi, Karnataka

INDIA | Tue, 19 Mar 2019 | By dawnandmark | Views [106] | Comments [4]

The epic journey was seemless, even managed a quick beer at Nagpur airport before we left the state of Maharashta for the southern state of Karnataka. We flew into Bangalore and got a taxi straight to the train station for our overnight train to Hampi.... Read more >

Making the final preparations for our month trip to Southern India.  Excited and a little nervous.  We fly on Monday and arrive in Mumbai in the early hours of Tuesday 5th March.  I'll keep you posted, let the next big adventure begin.... Read more >

Nagarhole & Coorg

INDIA | Wed, 27 Mar 2019 | By dawnandmark | Views [86] | Comments [3]

First morning off on safari again. This was our third National park in India and our last safari of the holiday. This was the best safari, we saw loads. Including a pack of wild dogs with 9 puppies, elephants, a herd of large gaur (like bison), a giant ... Read more >


CHILE | Mon, 25 Feb 2019 | By nortina | Views [63] | Comments [3]

Hace menos de un mes me tocó la última radiografía, baciloscopía y examen de sangre del tratamiento contra la tuberculosis. Esto de manera preventiva. Es extraño. Si bien sabía desde antes del día de ... Read more >

Viking Ship Museum, Bygdøy, and...OH 3%@^

NORWAY | Tue, 11 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [269] | Comments [2]

For some reason I haven't been sleeping well at all on this journey. Late nights chasing the aurora and limited daylight mean I have to be out there as much as possible. You can't stay inside when the sun rises after 9 AM and sets at 2:30 PM. Yesterday ... Read more >

Idling happily in Sarasota, FL

USA | Mon, 10 Jun 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [185] | Comments [2]

Sunday June 9th 2019 Easy living in the early summer in Sarasota, FL. Not much riding these days....perfect idle in the comfort of great friends and inspiration. Also amongst furry friends and thriving chameleons we ... Read more >

Did you know what Michael did?

USA | Fri, 17 May 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [154] | Comments [2]

May 4th 2019  ...in Panama Beach, Panama City, Mexico Beach, FL for miles and miles  around? Reaching 160mph winds? Riding our bicycles through these areas for 2-3 days left me in a state of shock...disbelieve! Seven ... Read more >

Tadoba, Maharashta

INDIA | Fri, 15 Mar 2019 | By dawnandmark | Views [104] | Comments [2]

The main purpose for travelling to this quite remote area is to see tigers. We did have a fairly quick way to get here that involved two flights and a 2.5 hours car drive. Unfortunately the airline cancelled the flights the week before and it wasn't ... Read more >

Balneário Camboriú, Bates Motel and a riddle

BRAZIL | Sun, 8 Sep 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [96] | Comments [2]

September, Monday the 2nd 2019 Such a silly thing to do is to get hooked on a TV show like “Bates Motel”, right after finishing being entertained by “The Marvelous Mrs Measel” why isn’t there a 3rd Season and why then ... Read more >

Our first “little” weekend in the 7th biggest city in the world.

BRAZIL | Wed, 16 Oct 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [35] | Comments [2]

Note: world nomads won’t let me insert any links or photos right now....I will try later... October 14th. Somehow we landed us a WarmShower gig at a retired university professor with his wife and her momma.  Riding up from the ... Read more >

Feeling Hopeless...

NORWAY | Thu, 6 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [203] | Comments [1]

When the clouds firmly cover the sky and the weather is foul, you can’t stay in one place when searching for the aurora. Today I made a move from Gibostad, on the island of Senja, to Narvik, 2 1/2 hours south. Two nights gone and two nights of ... Read more >

An Oslo Stroll

NORWAY | Mon, 10 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [190] | Comments [1]

For much of this trip I was dreading having to spend time in Oslo. The Norwegian capital just doesn't stand out the same way as London, Rome, or Vienna. People travel to France just to go to Paris and to the Netherlands to go to Amsterdam but you'd be ... Read more >

We are three, together and on the road.

USA | Sun, 24 Feb 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [178] | Comments [1]

San Clemente, CA 2/23/2019 Three very different characters with the same passion for cycling, (but maybe even slightly different styles of cycling/touring). We have pretty much similar world views..... an architect, a social worker and a doctor.... Read more >

Cookery experience, Ho Chi Minh

VIETNAM | Wed, 12 Dec 2018 | By mitann | Views [120] | Comments [1]

Nothing starts a good day better than a stop on a fancy toilet. Very Asian thing, this seat is heated, it’ll wash your innards and give you a nice hot blow dry. It’s not something we are accustomed, not sure I could get used to it. ... Read more >

The Aduana Experience

ARGENTINA | Sun, 14 Jul 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [112] | Comments [1]

July 11th 2019   We sent our camping stoves from Florida to Buenos Aires ahead of our flight, because we wanted to make sure they get there! Reason why: Our camping stoves had been taken from us at the airport in Buenos Aires when we flew ... Read more >


INDIA | Sat, 30 Mar 2019 | By dawnandmark | Views [100] | Comments [1]

Our last stop in India. Gokarna is about 80 miles south of Goa and chosen because it is relatively undeveloped. Gorkana town is a holy town and a site of pilgrimage for Hindus. There are lots of active temples in the town and the town beach is a site ... Read more >

Argentina/Brazil...Iguazu Falls with all the trimmings.

BRAZIL | Sun, 11 Aug 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [89] | Comments [1]

August 4th 2019. The reward is in the pudding....something like that. It was a long ways coming with a few minor “speed bumps” and here we are in one of the most stunning part of nature the world has seen.  We just about ... Read more >

Florida Keys

USA | Sat, 6 Jul 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [87] | Comments [1]

June 30th  Ok, really, we are going to leave the USA, I promise! The heat and humidity made us give up our plan to get to Cuba   - even though there is a travel ban for US citizens, but exceptions always underline the rules ... Read more >

Mysore & Bandipur

INDIA | Sat, 23 Mar 2019 | By dawnandmark | Views [87] | Comments [1]

Great overnight train to Mysore and we both had a good sleep, must be getting used to sleeping on a train! Mysure was just a quick stopover really, although we did have a very nice hotel. Not that much to see in Mysore but it is an attractive city with ... Read more >

The NO WAY to São Paulo or “Wer nicht wagt, der nicht gewinnt” (Who doesn’t dare, doesn’t win)

BRAZIL | Sun, 13 Oct 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [65] | Comments [1]

Saturday October 12th. We gathered a bunch of conflicting information how to get to São Paulo on our bikes. James and I were clear that we are going to cycle ....we both had no interest of taking the bus! We were told by one source “... Read more >

  I usually try to write a lot along the way when traveling, but this trip I found myself posting to InstaBook more than writing (search #russinbali on Insta or Facebook for more pics and stories). However I had plenty of time on the long flight ... Read more >
