We don’t know what we’re doing, but hey we’re doing it!

“We don’t know what we’re doing, but hey we’re doing it!” Said in jest recently, this quote pretty well sums up this expedition into the unfamiliar and sometimes uncomfortable. Over halfway done! It is hard to believe that we have already gotten this far. We can only hope that the second half of this journey is as amazing and enriched as the first. We have done everything from cave-tubing in Belize to volcano-boarding in Nicaragua. We have explored Mayan temples in Guatemala and gone surfing in Costa Rica. I could sit here all day listing the adventures and shenanigans that we have gotten into in the last three months, and it makes me smile recalling them. When spending this much time with the same people day in and day out there are bound to be lows as well as highs. Fortunately for us the highs have far surpassed any minor setbacks we have had. We started out as a loosely affiliated mixture of individuals who wanted to have adventures and go to Brazil on bicycles. We have since congealed into a family who understand and look out for each other. At some time or another each of us have had strong desires to just call it quits and find the next flight back home to loved ones and security. So far we have been able to withstand these urges and plunge on into the unknown thanks to the love and support from so many throughout the travels. We want to thank all of you who have been with us from the beginning, as well as those of you who have joined us along the way. Your feedback and encouragement goes a long way to strengthen our morale and resolve to keep pedaling. Thank you, Gracias, Danka, Arigato, Merci

  1. Just found your blog putting your name on Google after you gave me that intriguing card at Lollapalooza. I'm the girl with the zebra mask, maybe you don't even remember, but I just wanted to say that I've loved the idea.

    I'm passionated about communication, specially people interaction. I like to find different ways to get in touch with strangers and the card was just amazing.

    Good luck on your trips and life...
