Mauny and Elaine,

I just read your article about your bike trip through Italy in the Ventura County Star. I am originally from Camarillo, so still get the news from there every once in s while.

I just wanted to say congrats on your tour. Do you have plans for another?

I am 25 years olf and have been on 9 long distance self-supported bike tours over the past 9 years. In fact, I am currently in Switzerland and cycling around in the cold and snow. I'll go from here to Austria and then into Hungary. I don't know where I will go after that, but I plan to be here in Europe until the end of May.

I also run a website all about bicycle travel (as it is certainly one of my passions) as if you are interested in checking it out, it can be found at

Anyway, I just wanted to write and say hello and to tell you I saw the article. It's always fun to connect with other travelers and it's even more fun when they are from my home town!
