Mini Bear is a little stuffed animal that was knit by a close friend to keep me company as I left behind my life in New York City to travel full time. You can generally find at least one photo with Mini Bear in every post (less often when I’m at a race–the peloton just moves too fast for her!). I’m working towards my goal of visiting every country in the world and have hit over 80 countries so far. Since July, 2011 Mini Bear and I have visited every continent and have loved every minute!
As for me, I’m Kathryn: a teacher, a Canadian, a cycling fan, a knitter, an aspiring Spanish speaker, an amateur falafel connoisseur, and world traveler, among other things. My love of professional cycling hijacked much of 2013, taking me across Europe (and once briefly back to Canada) to watch some of the sport’s biggest races. I still haven’t had my fill of the peloton so much the last 2 years has been spent running around Europe (and Canada and Australasia!) to watch more cycling. In between races, you can expect posts about the places and people I visit.
These days I’m based in Girona, Catalunya, Spain while training for triathlons.
Join me as I explore the world, meet new people, negotiate languages and public transportation systems, follow pro cycling races, and have the occasional misadventure!
