Go West…Wagons Roll!

June 30 - Copenhagen to Esbjerg Another leapfrog day. With one eye constantly on the calendar and our July deadline, we made the decision to do another leapfrog by rail.

He pulled a crisp, white handkerchief from his breast pocket, unfolded... Continue Reading →

Go Slow Sunday Lives On

And so the finals begin [insert sad sigh here]. Our final Sunday. To mark the occasion, we might as well resurrect that grand tradition that we enjoyed so much…Go Slow Sunday. It so happened it was a good day for it, being another one of heavy rain and temperatures well towards the bottom of the... Continue Reading →
