Comments blocked on Magical World

Today I took the decision to block all comments on Magical World.

Spammers are currently flooding the blog with spam which are filling up our backend database (it is a small and cheap hosting service). Although all spam are captured by our spam filter, we end up with our hosting service provider blocking SQL insert and update statements. It basically freezes our website.

In the near future I will evaluate a better solution and restore comments. But for the time being, feedback can be provided to us via the contact us page.

An Icelandic Saga

On the road...We are on the edge to write a new Icelandic saga. In a few days, we will embark on a plane direction: Iceland.

10 years ago we were leaving Iceland after an incredible time there. Now we are going back with our bicycle to explore it differently.

Iceland is an amazing place, but it is a difficult one too, especially on a bike. The weather is harsh, the wind strong, the roads are tricky and bridges only exist on road #1! But Iceland is a magical place, it’s wild, it’s colourful, it’s warm and cold.

Just let’s go exploring it!

On the road again

Happy travelling in Christchurch, NZ

Happy travelling in Christchurch, NZ

One month ago, we were back from our trip around the world. That was an amasing experience, it is so much a different way of travelling and getting to know other cultures! You may have read all about our experience along our way or seen our photographs from so many countries: Russia, Mongolia, China, Nepal, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Sydney, New Zealand, French Polynesia, Easter Island, and the northern Chile and Argentina.

And we did not get it enough from it! There are still so many places that we want to see, so many things to experience. So we decided to go again on the road.

Not too long, not too many countries this time, and changing of means of transport. Our next adventure will be in Patagonia (southern tip of South America, a region that encompass Chile and Argentina) on our own bicycle.

We will be touring Patagonia for a little less than 3 months with the up and down of the road, weather and our physical and mental strengths. But we anticipate it as a great and rewarding journey.

As with our world trip, we will try along the road to write some of our feelings and experiences on our blog, a dedicated section will open soon. And if the internet connections are not too bad, we will even add new photographs!

There is a whole magical world there, and we are going to explore it!
