Welcome Willkommen Tervetuloa

Welcome to follow the story of our new life! May 3rd 2013 together with our three dogs we started our journey around the world by motorbikes.

This is not just another travelogue. More like an open diary, where we tell about anything and everything that affects our lives... Besides motorbiking ethical veganism, fruitarianism, dogs, love of clean nature and sports belong to our everyday life, so for example those are things we will also write about in this blog.

Chapter III - Plans are on hold and Australia is waiting.

A long time ago in May2013 a Finnish/German couple started together with their three dogs to ride around the world on their motorbikes. They rode together about 70000km through 38 countries across 4 continents. Tragedy happened when Hertta died late 2014 in the US. A major turning point was Costa Rica where Skippy decided to release Lyra and Ulpu from their anxiety of traveling in the sidecar. Instead we would get a car for the girls in Colombia and they could go on their own. Consequently Skippy sold her Suzi in Costa Rica. Wolfi did not want to go alone and so Peto joined as a travel companion for him. The journey continued for a little while with all being packed and loaded onto the sidecar. In Colombia we found a car for Skippy and Lyra & Ulpu. However a short while later we admitted that Lyra's travel days seemed to be over. Skippy sold the car and went back to Europe.

Wolfi & Peto continued with the sidecar through South America. There were plenty of kilometers, stunning landscapes and breath-taking adventures. Skippy went through Europe first by train, then by walking/train and once she had a bicycle she rode her bicycle with the trailer from Germany back to Finland (with a shortcut across Sweden).
United back in Finland, the house is still for sale and we hope that we will continue our journeys.

Stay tuned for more travelogues, pictures, reports, pet & bike friendly accommodation hints, detailed tracks, border crossing stories and more.

If you want to follow the girls you need to tune in into her youtube channel (RawFinn).

During our journey we are promoting a "cruelty free world". We will do so by helping animal shelters and sanctuaries. More to come on this topic...
