Latvian border along the LatEst cycle route. Apparently, Holly's ancestry originates from Latvia, so looking forward to discovering more..
The Nemunas River, Lithuania
We've probably got these little fella's at a farm in Poland to thank for the super warm goose down and feathers that have filled our Cumulus Sleeping Bags!
Charging up using our Solar Gorilla by Power Traveller
Tranquil countryside, quiet, decent and reasonably flat roads through Eastern Poland. We were blown away by the size, scale and sophistication of agriculture here, we now understand why Poland has been labelled the breadbasket of Europe

Cutting through the dense forest of the Biołowieża National Park, alongside the Belorussian border of Eastern Poland, we came across this narrow-guage railway track..
Biołowieża National Park, Poland
Receiving some hugely appreciated bike knowledge from our fantastic Warmshower's host
Ratusz city hall, one example of the unique renaissance architecture in the UNESCO city of Zamość, Poland. So beautiful.
Hard to say exactly where this is, but my guess would be Western Serbia, descending towards the Bosnian border
When we saw the Lego factory in Hungary, it had already fallen dark. We couldn't not get a photo, so we pulled off what has probably been our 'stealthiest' camp of the journey so far; in the grounds of Legoland!!
Monument of World War ll heroes in Arad, Romania
Political Street Art on the streets of Timisoara, Western Romania.
In the fortress of Belgrade, Serbia
Holly foraging for homegrown vegetables amongst this mountaintop paradise that belonged to the family of our gracious Warmshower's host in Bosnia. The views, along with the home-grown/ home-cooked food we had that evening, is one of our most cherished memories.
Along the cliffs of Dubrovnik, Croatia
The Big Revelin Tower, one of eight medieval towers built amongst the ramparts of Korčula's old town. The town and island of Korčula is nothing short of breathtaking.
Camping on a beach in Croatia along with friends Mary-Sutton, Kirsty & James. We slyly escaped a fine later in the evening after lighting a fire along the shoreline, which we promptly diminished when we heard the local patrol rustling through the bushes to inspect what was happening!
Always a special place; the old town of Hvar, Croatia, from the same balcony that we stayed when we married here in 2011!
Hanging out in the backstreets of Hvar

In an empty camp ground on the island of Brač, Croatia with good friend Rohan who came to ride with us
In the old town of Split, Croatia, waiting to catch a ferry to the islands with Sutton, James & Kirsty
A stormy afternoon from the dock in Trinidad, Caribbean
We have regularly been asked about the risks and dangers along our way and we can honestly say that the only place where we had any fear whatsoever, had been in Trinidad. Barbed wire is a common sight.
As we had fallen behind the seasons and did not fancy crossing Central Asia in the thick of winter, we took the opportunity of work back on a boat in Trinidad for winter, turned out to be the best thing we could have done.
Holly dancing down the docks on a day off in Trinidad!
Very symbolic.. take it as you please!
The Bamboo Cathedral in Tucker Valley, Chaguaramas, Trinidad. A magical 300m stretch of bamboo that has arched over from either side of the walkway to form a cathedral like arch all the way along
An old bridge amongst the jungle in the northern parts of Trinidad.
The Bamboo Cathedral
Once the largest radar/ tracking station in the Southern Hemisphere, used by the United States Navy. It is no longer in operation.
Holly had been itching to jump on this board and catch some waves in Tobago, unfortunately we had to watch from the beach this time as we had a ferry to catch
Watching the sunset from the top deck.. the best part of life on a boat
Jetty in Tobago
I'm sure many people can relate to this!
The picture speaks for itself! Caribbean ornamental homeware!
From a shepherds hut in remote mountains, to sleeping under the stars and then working on super yachts . We are so privileged to have experienced such diversity and witnessed so many wonderful ways of life, all credible in their own.
You can't help but love the vibrant colours of the Caribbean! - Tobago.
This has to be one of the most thoughtful gifts we have received. A man came to the back of our boat one day and had had this stamp made for us to take on our journey!
We decided to take a tour of the steel pan bands that were practicing for the upcoming Trinidad carnival. We were not allowed to film however incase we gave anything away!
Camping bliss along the river banks in Brittany, North-West France.
