We’ve dusted off the bikes, dug out the camping gear and persuaded our bosses to give us 6 weeks off to feed our travel bug.
This trip has been a long time coming, it is hard to believe it has been 3 years since we last set off on our travels.
During that time we have sold the house, leaving us mortgage-free – yay!! An amazing feeling. We’ve saved enough money to go on our next big adventure but before we embark on that we wanted to test out our kit, lose some weight (me especially, how quickly it creeps back on) and get bike fit.
We have managed to persuade our bosses, in my case the board of trustees, to give us 6 weeks off so we can cycle from Madrid to Morocco. We would have cycled from the UK but the ferry was far more expensive than the flight, how crazy is that?
Today is the first day, of our mini adventure we’ve spent the last week or two gathering our kit together and purchasing bits and bobs and we’re ready to go on.
We’re a little apprehensive, we haven’t been touring since we came home. We just hope our bodies remember how to ride heavily loaded bikes and live a very basic lifestyle.
We enjoyed your company last time and although this is a much shorter trip we hope you will follow and encourage us. We’re looking forward to catching up with old and new blogging friends.
Ginette and Gary
