Sean Deany

Posted September 27th, 2010

Sean has been been a keen bicycle tourist since doing a 5,000km tour from his home in Melbourne to Darwin in 2002.

“In 2008 / 09 I made a 9,000km cultural pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela from Singapore to Cape Finisterre in Spain. This 10 month journey was a well worth while tour made where I encountered much hospitality on the way,” he tells us in an email.

Sean’s Cape2Cape website has a number of journal pages devoted to his bike tour (hit the ‘Journal’ button)

Emma & Justin are two New Zealanders with bicycles and a tent, heading east from Santander in Spain towards Turkey, and eventually Russia or Central Asia through to South East Asia.

“After six years working in London, we were keen to travel for longer than a few weeks at a time and wanted to immerse ourselves in places that we visit. We’re not out to break any records but cycling seems to be about the right speed for us,” they say. You can read about their trip on their Rolling Tales website.
