A Country or a Big Mall

Having made the decision that we would waste the better part of an entire day to country bag Andorra it would have been far better for us if the rental car had refused to start. We were spending a couple of nights at Mas El Guitart, a spa hotel in L’Hostalnou de...

The Only Way is Up

The time being slightly after 8am during the week and having no espresso maker in our Funchal airbnb rental it was time for one of my frequent fifty meter walks to the local cafe and grocery store. It would have been far easier to fit in with the locals had I ordered...

Sweet and Juicy Pineapples

Having just spent three weeks in Portugal the thought was why not continue in the Portuguese vain and hit the islands, beginning in the Azores before heading down to Madeira. The Autonomous Region of the Azores is located around 850 miles from the mainland and total...

Housesitting Portugal

Housesitting, whilst not an entirely new concept to us, was different on this occasion due it being our first overseas experience. We didn’t intentionally chose Portugal but with neither of us having visited this European holiday destination before it made the...

Rediscovering Great Britain

We find more and more that when speaking with fellow travelers the response when asking about which country they’ve seen the most of, their home country is never top of the list. I’ve probably seen more of my adopted country than I have of my home land....

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...

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...

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

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

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

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

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...
