A year on the road

June 2nd, 2009 by scott and becky

On June 2nd, 2008 we packed up our bikes for the first time and began our adventure with a trip around Lake Ontario. It is kind of scary to think that we have been off work and traveling by bicycle for over a year now. To celebrate this anniversary we are hopping on a freighter. We hope they have a good bottle of wine waiting for us. We also hope to write a few year in reflection posts as we while away the time crossing the Pacific.

We are a few days behind, so you will need to wait in anticipation of our final adventures in Southern Korea. We are writing this from Hae-Undae Beach, so we still need to make our way across the metropolis of Busan and find the Busan New Port and our ship, the Hanjin Madrid. If you don’t hear from us until mid-June, then you know we succeeded in getting aboard!

    Hey guys,

    Received the latest package from your friend in Ottawa. Your sleeping bags are out of their compression bags and airing daily on the balcony. Do you want me to wash the clothes in the box from Singapore? I promise to air dry everything so there will be no shrinkage or pilling – I know how finicky technical fabrics can be! Let me know and I’ll have everything clean and smelling nice when you get to Victoria.
