We are Jean-Marc and Leigh.  A couple at the end of our working lives who like to travel.  These days most of our traveling is done by bicycle but neither of us think of ourselves as cyclists. 

We're currently cycling from Antalya in Turkey to Baku in Azerbaijan via Georgia.   A case of traveling from A to B while visiting three seas (Mediterranean,  Black and Caspian). 

The distance leads me farther on though the reasons I once had are gone. I keep thinking I'll find what I'm looking for in the sand beneath the dawn. (copyright Jackson Browne 1974)
