We are Jon and Sylvia Evans, both 50 somethings who are fortunate enough to be retired, and for the next few years we hope to drift around various parts of the World on our bicycles, and on foot. After tours in Europe and South America this Summer has seen Jon walk the Camino to Santiago, followed by a cycle tour of Iceland. At the moment we are not sure what our next trip will be ., either together or separately, but hopefully there will be several more to come.

Hopefully these pages will let you follow our various travels as we try to write about our daily lives and the cultures, geography and people that we meet along the way.


On the menu bar above you will find pages describing  tours to date, and also some pages about us and our plans, including Recent Posts to bring you up to date with what we are currently doing

.If you are interested in following us please go to the very bottom of this page and enter your e mail address in the follow box.



You will then get an e mail to confirm and once you have approved that then you will get our regular updates.

Also at the foot of this page are archived posts from our journeys, which give a flavour of our daily life.

The Gallery Page above contains a selection of pictures that give a visual story and brief description of our travels.

We hope you can join us on our travels by bicycle

    My daughter, Melissa and I enjoyed meeting you today over tapas and drinks in Alhama. I have met many cyclists but none that are on such a tour. What a wonderful journey.
    Safe travels!!

    • Hi Lori, Good to talk to you, and thanks for your comment. A big part of our trip is the number of people that we meet, almost every day, all with their own stories. I hope you enjoy your tour of Spain, and hope that Melissa continues to enjoy living here We have a long list of places that we want to tour,but the Pacific Coast of the States is on the list, so perhaps we will get to Seattle someday.


  5. If you do make it to the PNW (Pacific Northwest) look us up. My husband and I would be happy to host you and your wife. Our email is: meolund@msn.com
    Happy Trails!

    Hi Jon & Sylvia – good to bump in to you, share coffee and tales of the road. Hope you found EPDSM OK in spite of my mixed directions. Enjoy your ride north and if you’re ever down this way again drop me a line. Richard

  8. Hi john, we met you in Loire Vally, we were the group canoeing when you stopped for a chat, from Llanelli, hope your journey is going well


    • Hi Damian, Thanks, it was good to see someone from “home” on our travels, off to Argentina in a couple of days, might get to the Welsh part of Patagonia, so may find more Welsh there than in France!
