January 08, 2012 update:
The last three (3) months have been a blur as we prepared for yet another big change.
On January 05, 2012 we left Canada to move to Germany for a maximum 2-year work term. The pros are that we will be able to explore Europe while working, unfortunately that also means that we have to delay our next big trip which was planned to proceed in August of 2012.
Please note the NEW contact e-mail address:
As we settle into our new home, we hope to finally get the photogallery updated. Still to come are pictures of a Off-Road trip to Tunisia in April 2011 and Hawaii in December 2011.
...until our next adventure begins.
Where have we been…Check out the Photogallery.
Over 72 countries, 165,000kms, 45,000 pictures, 30hours of helmet video footage, 370 days in a tent, 220 World Heritage Sites and many more to come….
A view of the world through our eyes…
Welcome to our personal unus vita website (also known as www.2canadiansonbikes.com). Unus Vita is latin and translates to One Life. We love to travel to different parts of the world, to experience the culture, the people and history of a country. Most of our travels to date have been completed on our two (2) BMWR1200GS's. However, that changed in 2011, when we upgraded to a Toyota Landcruiser fully converted to a Overland Vehicle. This website is all about sharing our amazing stories, pictures and video.
We are Canadians who used to live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada until our relocation to Germany in January 2012 for Ruby to pursue a 2-year work term. Our names are Mike and Ruby. To read a bit more about us check out the link to our names.
We would like to thank:
- other travelers who have shared their stories with us and inspired us.
- those of you who follow our journeys with the same passion as we experience them.
- and our family and friends who think we are crazy, but still support us.
