We don’t travel far from Vancouver all that often, most of our trips are out in our own boat in our own waters, or riding our two wheeled machines on close by roads, since we really do live in one of the most amazing places on the planet. But sometimes we venture further afield. In 2005 we flew to Greece and decided to test our mettle for 21 days in a sailboat. It was (mostly) a success and we blogged our trip as we went (see Greece 2005). We decided to do it again (the trip and the blog) in 2009, for a full month. Lately our trips have been more conventional or long motorcycle rides, change is good.
