Patrizia & Brö started exploring the world in 2003 on their tandem bicycle, through parts of Africa and South America, the Middle East, Central Asia and via China and Nepal to Southeast Asia. They took breaks in Switzerland (2006) and Singapore (2008) and now they’re on the third stage of their trip, including Japan and South Korea.

They write: “During the past years we had the chance to get to know kindhearted people, to cycle through lonely and breathtaking landscapes at temperatures ranging from -25°C to +50°C, to visit busy cities and remote villages, to pedal over mountain passes and endless deserts, from 420m below sea level to 5,897m above sea level, to travel by boat, bus, train, yacht, lorry, motorcycle, horse and on foot, wandering, wondering, exploring, admiring. In short, we could – and still can – enjoy our lives as globetrotters, travellers and guests of foreign countries, people and cultures. All this we would love to share with you on these few pages. We are pleased that you are taking part in our journey!”

Somewhere On Earth is their website. Their motto: “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

Ingrid & Yves

Ingrid & Yves

Ingrid & Yves are two very special cyclists. Not only have they biked in much of Europe, they also give many touring cyclists a place to call home for a few days at their house in France. Yves makes the best bread you’ve ever tasted, which has been devoured by many happy cyclists. Ingrid takes care of their website BikeAway (in German) with tips for bike touring, photos and GPS downloads of tracks and points of interest across Europe.
