We are Megan and Barry and in the spring of 2016 we quit our jobs after having sold our house and most of our stuff in order to travel more and have some fun. After completing a 5 1/2 month self-supported bike tour across Europe with our dog, Cisco, we took a road trip down the Baja peninsula and hung out in Cabo San Lucas for the winter. After training back in Colorado for the summer, we are now in New Zealand for a 4 month bike tour around both islands. This blog is about our adventures along the way, the logistics of traveling and bike touring, and the reality of quitting "real life" in order to pursue our dreams.
