Hong Kong Layover

Hong Kong Layover

Flying to the end of the world for the second time this year was always going to be a drawn out affair, made even worse by departing England instead of the US. Flight prices seemed lower than flying from the US which surprised me, so much in fact that I allowed my dad...

One Goes Global to Denmark

One Goes Global to Denmark

Unexpected, traveling alone, and little time for preparation, Denmark wasn't on the agenda. I needed to get to England for personal reasons and only being a week out flights were not looking cheap, especially when traveling with a mountain bike. I had to be creative...

Birmingham Hip Resurfacing or Bust

Birmingham Hip Resurfacing or Bust

With a good amount of trepidation we headed north towards Madison, Wisconsin, on this occasion for my second bout of hip surgery. My decision to go ahead with further surgery was prompted by the rapid decline of my right hip - hiking was resulting in more and more...

Saint-Pierre & Miquelon by Fatbike

Saint-Pierre & Miquelon by Fatbike

Had it not been for the Century Travelers Club neither of us would have heard of this little slice of France in the northern Atlantic. Listed under the North American countries/ territories heading this turned out to be the last of our places to visit within that...

Cape Breton Island

Cape Breton Island

Home of the Cabot driving trail and ferry departure point to the province of Newfoundland, Cape Breton Island is renowned for its Celtic influence, art scene, and amazing coastline. It was here we got to camp at one of our top ten all time campsites at Meat Cove, be...

New Scotland

New Scotland

Not to say that we didn't enjoy New Brunswick but we really used the Province as a means to get from Maine through to Nova Scotia. Apparently tourism falls short due to this reason! Three hours beyond the quaint seaside town of Saint Andrews and just shy of the NS...

Northeastern Highpoints

Northeastern Highpoints

Completing the seven continental highpoints, or 7 Summits as they are commonly called, is still on hold for financial and fitness reasons. Also, with only the big price tag mountains of Everest and Vinson remaining there needed to be an interim goal that was...

Adirondacks & More

Adirondacks & More

Yes, we know it’s been a long time since we’ve sent out a blog, and no, we didn’t move to Montana either. In fact a few weeks ago we once again left Andrea’s family in Kentucky and headed north in our trusted steed, Going Broke. After spending a few days with friends...

Europe & Middle East Recap

Europe & Middle East Recap

We’ve now been back from our six month tour of Eastern Europe, Israel, Jordan, Cuba and 110 miles of hiking around the Mont Blanc Massif for almost a month and are already discussing whats next. Funny how things go as one minute we’re talking about staying put and...

Cuba; pre Big Mac & Latte Invasion

Cuba; pre Big Mac & Latte Invasion

By the time this blog gets posted JetBlue and Spirit Air will probably have scheduled flights to Havana from Fort Lauderdale and New York, bringing throngs of Americans to add to the already packed island. Some will be excited to introduce tacky Starbucks, McDonalds...

A City Divided

A City Divided

Almost everywhere we go is by one-way ticket, Edinburgh being no exception, so now we had to find the cheapest way of traveling from Scotland back to Turkey for unfinished business. The big airlines were way too expensive, Pegasus, the cheap Turkish airline only...

Hogmanay

Hogmanay

It took over forty years to make it to Edinburgh, inexcusable being that it’s barely eighty miles over the English border and only 300 miles from my hometown of Leicester. Scotland was also to be Andrea’s fifteenth new country of our extended European tour. A short...

Europe meets Asia

Europe meets Asia

East meets west, Europe meets Asia, TwoGoGlobal meets one of the worlds most cultural cities. We were both excited about the few weeks we would get to spend in Turkey, even if it was at the height of winter and terrorism threats! Our first stop was to the sprawling...

Tour du Mont Blanc

Tour du Mont Blanc

It wasn’t until reading an article on top hikes of the world that we jumped on the chance to hike the 110 miles around the tallest mountain in the Alps, a route known as the Tour du Mont Blanc. This was actually our second choice of European hike, the first being the...

This Time in 48 Hours

This Time in 48 Hours

OK, so it’s almost time to get back on the road after spending the past few weeks chilling out and recuperating in Kentucky. Early on Thursday afternoon we take a short flight to Baltimore before heading out across the Atlantic, via Iceland, to London Gatwick. Almost...

Froze to Death Plateau

Froze to Death Plateau

I spent a lot of time researching which peak I wanted to summit in the greater Yellowstone area. There were two at the top of my list, both of them the highest peaks in their states; Granite Peak in Montana and Gannett Peak in Wyoming. The shortest trail leading to...

The Lure of Glacier’s Backcountry

The Lure of Glacier’s Backcountry

With a free weekend and a little apprehension, Andrea and I found ourselves in the Apgar backcountry office deciding on a permit to allow us to camp for two nights in Glacier National Park. We had a few ideas based on some online research, but we had no idea if we...

Hiking Yellowstone

Hiking Yellowstone

I spent a week in Yellowstone for photography at the beginning of May so now it was time to return with Andrea. We reserved three nights at the Canyon campground located close to hikes, lodges, showers, and lots of wildlife. We added two additional nights after...

Four Days in the Dordogne

Four Days in the Dordogne

In 2003 there was a mass departure from Leicester! I moved to Florida in the United States and two of my close friends from the club packed up their belongings and headed to the Dordogne region in France. They love living in France and have a beautiful country home...

The Emerald Isle

The Emerald Isle

I lived in England for 35 years so I have no excuse for never visiting the Republic of Ireland, a small picturesque country famous for leprechauns, its dramatic west coast and Guinness, amongst other things. Andrea and I decided to visit with my dad for a long...
