Dan and Claire on Sabbatical!!

Welcome to our blog, we hope you enjoy following our adventures!
We split our sabbatical in 2 parts:
Part 1 was from March to June 2010 touring around in our campervan in France and Spain.
Part 2 started on the 7th of July when we left Scotland to cycle through Europe and the Middle East to Africa in the remaining 6 months (back for Xmas).
Have a look at the route below and we'll try to post pics as much as we can!


Cycle Route to Africa

Le 'Gervingt' (GR20)

Hello, we've been in the hills for 2 weeks nearly and now we're back in mainland France. What a great adventure we had walking across Corsica on the GR20 with Matty Splatty (not matty fatty cos he lost 8 pounds of weight!!!). Lugging backpacks of 15-20kg each in the boiling heat...until it rained and hailed.

They say it is the most technical walk in Europe, Claire and Mat agree....Dan thinks it was piss (although he was seen limping a few times). Old war wounds you see :o)
It feels like we've been in the mountains for ages! What an amazing walk we all loved it and recommend it to everyone who likes walking for 9-14 days....

Back in france for a few days for a spot of climbing and  then heading back north and home to pick up the bikes.
