We are Suyin and Cleave, a newly married couple from Sydney who wanted to travel long-term. We debated back and forth over how much it was realistically going to cost and if we could actually afford it.
Scouring the internet searching for long-term budget travel we came across bicycle touring, that is travelling through countries by cycling and carrying everything necessary.
Self-contained travelling, slowly, simply and cheaply – this sounded like the perfect solution.
After a lot of research, planning and a whole lot of saving, we packed up our lives into a small storage unit left behind. Our remaining belongings will be what we carry with us on two bikes, ready to travel where our pedals take us.
Our long-term budget, affects which countries we want to visit, and how long we can travel for. We haven’t planned too far in advance but we do have a bucket list of countries that we want to visit. Anything else will be a surprise! With bikes and camping gear the pressure of big expenses like accommodation and transport can be more easily controlled.
Well, there’s a whole world out there ready and waiting. With little to no experience of bike touring between us, and not much of a plan, this will be quite an adventure, come along for the ride!
Thats the spirit, well done !

Awesome, look forward to seeing more travel stories!
Thanks Raf, looks like you have also been up to some adventures on the Travel & Lifestyle site lately as well.
Hedda very beautiful
How cool! Are you coming to Finland? There is a very unique and beautiful cycling route here, to be done in summer – the Archipelago trail. I hope you have a chance to do it one day soon! I have only gone by car and boat as I’m not much of a biker 🙂
Wow, thanks for the idea! Not this trip but hopefully we can do it one day, it looks spectacular 🙂
