My Husband and I have decided to quit the rat race and go on a long cycle tour. An extract from our journal "We had an opportunity come our way and decided that ignoring an opportunity of a life time was daft, so we took it. The result is that from 1st March 2011 we are jobless and homeless and with passports in hand, free (more or less) to go where we want to...". So we left and are now on the road cycling around the world.
We were to cover just under 14,000km (8,700 miles) in the 12 months we were on the road. http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/SatNavSaysStraightOn1
