Hello and welcome to the blog! This is the place to follow the travels of a couple of Tasmanians who like to get out and about, travel and collect experiences and memories.
So this is us…
Heidi…runner, worrier, short (5’ nothing), vegan
Steve…cyclist, laid back, tall (6’5”), convert from a near complete “meatarian” who put a sizeable dent in the chicken population, to fellow vegan
In 2015 we decided to “seize the day”, attempt an adventure and embark on our own “grand tour” that saw us spend a year doing a self-supported cycle tour through Europe, having never done anything remotely like that before. Adventures, amazing experiences and more than one comedy of errors was to follow. Then in 2019, we pedalled off again, for six months of cycling through some new countries. In between, we try to get out and about in our own patch and discover what Tasmania has to offer.
So we are a couple of opposites, who can at times be the little ’n large comedy hour as we run, ride and roam, sometimes getting lost, but always having an amazing time. We hope you’ll enjoy sharing our travels with us!

All the best guys. Travel safely and enjoy the experience even if it comes with a sore butt and windburn. If at all possible try to egt to Turkey, Heidi!!!! It is stunning.
NICE TO MEET YOU BOTH IN AXMINSTER, DEVON. ON YOUR TRAVELS. ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH DEVON AND CORNWALL.
Thanks Phil, it was great to meet you and Phil and thanks so much for the chat. We sure will enjoy our journey…hills and all!
Saw your story on Happy Herbivore today. My wife and I are similar to you, except I’m the WFPB member of the family. I’m 48 and have been thinking of quitting my job and the two of us doing a bike tour across the US or Europe. I’ve been enjoying reading your blog, but haven’t seen much about how you financed your trip and any arrangements with your employers, or if you just quit. Sounds like your dog was taken care of by your parents, but did you consider bringing him with you? Would love to hear more about the logistics if you don’t cover that in your blogs later on.
Thanks for sharing your story. You’ve lived my dream and now I want to do something similar as well.
