My name is Clayton, I do most of the typing. My wife is Katy. I’m 29 and she’s 26. We got married 6 or 7 years ago – Katy would know the exact date and things have been good since. Life started to teeter on the edge of getting serious so we figured before settling into adulthood and responsibility we would try our luck at pedaling across Europe. Unfortunately and fortunately, medical school was able to give me either a year off or nothing off. I decided to take the year off, extending the length of our trip significantly.
I’m a medical student at the University of Michigan, just finished my second year. It’s been a lot of fun – great classmates, loads of interesting information to learn and it’s great to be working at a goal that I have always had. Katy works for Google. She really enjoys it. At the dinner table when the topic of “what did you do today?” comes up, we often find ourselves entirely unable to understand what the other is talking about.
It was a difficult decision to leave things that we enjoy, we hope they will be there waiting for us when we return. And hopefully our friends haven’t stolen any of our bikes.
Other things we enjoy:
Jamaica, Charlie and Phish (let the entire video play – there are 3 videos)
