Mary and Pete blog portrait

We are Mary Thompson and Peter Root. At 5.00pm on the 12th July 2011 we got the boat to France with loads of stuff and two bikes. We’ve created this website to document our adventures along the way.

Thanks to our old pal Nunu for convincing a friendly bloke at an Apple store in London to replace our water-damaged iPhone for free! Have a look at Nunu’s beautiful artwork here.

Previous adventures include extensive travel around South America, where we ran art workshops at the Hogar Granje orphanage in Sucre, Bolivia, as well as intrepid sightseeing in many other countries including India, China and South Africa. In 2008 Mary and I cycled from Landsend to John O’Groats with our friend Julien. Have a look at Julien’s blog to find our more about our trip – landsend.wordpress.com
