Elena on the Danube

October 6, 2015 • 1 Comment

Hello fellow adventurers! My name is Elena Bennett, and I am a member of the Tripsite team. I just had the wonderful opportunity to experience the Along the Danube – Four Country Tour and would love to share some photos and memories with you.I went on this journey alone, which I highly recommend to everyone to experience at least once. I have to admit that it’s a bit intimidating, but there is an incredible sense of independence that results from a solo trip. Read More

The enthusiastic group before the 2,000m pass.My name is Anna, a member of the Tripsite team and an enthusiastic explorer. In July, I had an opportunity to bike the Icefields Parkway between Jasper and Canmore, on the Jasper to Banff Bike Tour. The equipment was top-notch, the group was extremely friendly, and the food was amazing, but the highlight of this trip was the unforgettable/breathtaking/absolutely magnificent scenery. Read More

A fun group photo.I arrived in Frankfurt from Thessaloniki, Greece, and was in immediate culture shock. Stepping out of the train station after a short ride from the airport, I entered a cityscape of skyscrapers!

I arrived in Greece last Wednesday, crossing the border from Bulgaria, leaving lingering winter to enter emerging spring.It is now Monday, our last cycling day. It was also the first day of rain.

Four Canadians, consisting of a married couple and two men, all friends, our attentive Bulgarian driver and support, and me. Four cycling comrades. Bill and Norma. Read More


More Than Travel: Eyes Wide Open

March 31, 2015

I arrived in the rain to Bulgaria's capital of Sofia and to be honest, drab was my first impression but not just because of the dreary overcast. The skyline I saw as we skirted the city was of a Soviet influenced gray and I thought of stereotypical communist austerity and uniformity. Once downtown, walking the damp streets in a light drizzle, I was surprised by the splashes of color and vibrancy. Read More

Update from Hennie in Hong Kong

When I arrived in Hong Kong on Monday, all I wanted was to go home. But I had only one day in Hong Kong. I have never been one that enjoyed figuring things out in a big city and definitely not a subway system. It is not that complicated but it is just not my thing. I forced myself so that I could enjoy the wonderful bike path.I took the beautiful subway, very wide walk ways, clean and new, to Tai Pai. It took a while to get a bike that was my fit. Read More
