June 01, 2014 update:
We have been living in Turkey for almost two (2) years and have nicely settle into our new home.
We decided to keep our future trips shorter. Mainly due to the fact that we really enjoy being in Turkey year around.
On June 02, 2014 we are leaving on a ten (10) week journey to Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Finland and Sweden with our Toyota Landcruiser.
We will not be updating the website as we travel. Yes we have been neglectful in getting our recent trips posted to the website. Still to come are Poland, Lativa, Lithuania, Estonia and Israel/Palestine. It is hard to squeeze in time at the computer when all our time is spend outside.
We are excited to be off again.
Happy travels to everyone.
Cheers, Ruby & Mike
A view of the world through our eyes…
Our names are Mike and Ruby. To read a bit more about us check out the link to our names. We are Canadians who used to live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada until our relocation to Kalkan, Antalya, Turkey in September of 2012. Why Turkey?
Way back in 2006 we came through Turkey on our motorcycles and fell in love with the people, culture, cuisine and country. We have been fortunate to see and experience a lot of cultures through our travels and yet we always were drawn back to Turkey. In September of 2012 we were given the opportunity to fulfill our dream and move to a small old fishing village called Kalkan in the Province of Antalya. Living has taken on a total different meaning...
We would like to thank:
- other travelers who have shared their stories with us and inspired us.
- those of you who follow our journeys with the same passion as we experience them.
- and our family and friends who think we are crazy, but still support us.
