It was absolutely quiet except for the wind, which blew in gusts and swirls. In all directions, all 360 degrees, vistas of the vast boreal tundra. Now that we had reached the Arctic Circle what adventure lay before us?

Betty (Rosann) is riding a motorbike …around the world (with Dan)…a little bit at at time…mostly in 3 month bites. (one of us has to work) The story is loosely about Betty…travelling through countries and little towns…bypassing big cities and big highways (as much as possible).
Encouraged by friends, work mates, complete strangers and family…we write a little bit of story each day…take a few photos…the odd movie…a few maps and other stuff (bad jokes and inappropriate language) added on as well.
Mostly, the story is easy to understand…except for the little bits of Tasmanian peculiar language and spelling……….just ignore these bits.
