    • Hi Louise. We have 5 days between Stratford Upon Avon and Chester so I think we have time to cycle through some of Wales (the map is a rough route only). Any routes/towns you recommend? I love Wales. I worked at the Green Man Festival one year and did some WWOOFing around Snowdonia and visited the Centre for Alternative Technology. Beautiful! Where are you?
      Cheers, Fin…

  1. Hi Guys hope its not too hot for you now that summer has returned to England. Love the new Doggie ride what a lucky chap that Paco is. Perhaps we will see you in Kent ? The girls are very excited you are in UK. Remember our home is always open for friends dogs included !!

    • Unfortunately we won’t make it to Glasgow on this trip. We’d have loved to have explored Scotland, but there is not enough time in the schedule. Boo hoo…

  2. Was great to meet you in Leeds today and hear about your adventures! George read (or listened to!) the first half of The Dog Detectives Lost in London tonight and he was loving it! I bet he cant wait until tomorrow night to hear the end! Ami + George (13 weeks!) x

    • Hi Ami. So glad to hear little George was loving it. He is quite a lucky boy to have such a dedicated story teller. You could have the next Sherlock Holmes on your hands. It was really lovely to meet you both in Leeds. We are nearing the Peak District now and the sun is shining. The English weather continues to impress! Dogs and crew are happy. Keep in touch. Zoa & Fin

  3. Dear Zoa and Fin,
    Nate, Casey and I often think of you, Jack and little Paco. We were just mentioning you to family over the weekend and smiling as we described you and your adventures a bit. Thank you for sending a card to us. It’s always fun to check in on your blog and to hear you are well. We hope your book sales are going well and that you are enjoying the travels. It was so much fun to meet you all and we wish you the very best as more folks read your books! I told Casey today that I’d like to look into ordering your set of books. One of my most favorite pastimes is to read to our little nephews and nieces. Reading aloud is so healthy for people of all ages!
    Panda is doing well and we continue to be thankful for a sweet dog friend here.
    Bye for now. With much love, Cathy, Nate and Casey Currier

    • Thank you for the lovely note Cathy.

      We are waiting for an order of our books to be sent to us from the UK. We will send you a gift box set once we receive them.

      Our stay with you and your family was so much fun. We were so lucky Nate picked us up when Fin’s back rim cracked. It would’ve been a very very very looooooonnnnnnnnnnnng, wet, cold walk. People like y’all make the road so special. Ah, it is tough returning back to the ‘real life’ after being on bicycles for the better part of 3 years. Dreaming about the next place to travel. I think Jack still has one trip left in him.

      Keep in touch, and send our love to Nate, Casey, Panda, and Cindy. Have a wonderful new year… 🙂
