About us

Posted by on Jul 29 2006 |

In the fall of 2001 Florian and I left our home town Winterthur in Switzerland on our bicycles to embark on a journey to explore the American Continent.

We were on the road for a bit over a year when we reached Vancouver (Canada) and decided to stay there over the winter, find work and leave again in spring to travel to Alaska.

Well, spring held a surprise for us. I was pregnant! The six months winter break turned into almost four years. Chan was about 2 1/2 years old when we were ready to live our dream on the road once again.

From Vancouver, the three of us were cycling south to Mexico and further into Latin America.

After 1 1/2 years of riding we reached northern Argentina and once again had to take a break from travelling. For half a year we returned to Switzerland to work.

In September 2008 we will return to our bicycles in Argentina to continue the journey: Riding all the way to the most southern tip of South America and wherever else our wheels will take us…

  1. Hi,

    My name is Michael and I traveled South America by bicycle in 2008. I see that you are on the west coast of the States. I now live in Orange County California with my NEW FAMILY (3 month old son and GirlFriend). If you pass through this area I invite you to get a hot shower and stay with us for a few days.

    Safe travels and pedal hard.

    Hi guys!

    How are you all going? We heard all about your family when we stayed with Steve and Linda in Los Angeles and were amazed by your story. We cycled the Pacific Coast in 2007 and since then have been busy having our own child and are now getting ready for an adventure of our own.

    We are from Australia and plan to arrive in Vancouver in April with our son Patrick who will be almost two. We are then hoping to cycle east across Canada and the US. We would love to meet up with you in Vancouver and swap stories.

    Hope you are going well and we get to meet you next year,

    Fiona, Travis and Patrick

    Hello Florian,
    Not sure if you remember me from Westpac. I used to work in the maintenance crew 2010 – the Czech guy (I currently work there again). I and my girlfriend would like to meet you guys one day. Your trips are amazing. We are planning long trip to US and Central America in fall and would be very interested to hear some of your experiences. I also search for contact to Gabriel (Brazilian guy – used to do landscaping in Westpac and buddied with you a lot). I lost contact to him and would like to meet him again. You can contact me on my email.

    Thanks a lot and take care guys! Love the way you do,

    cheers Martin
