Both Patty and Mark have traveled the world together for over three decades.  They backpacked and hitchhiked in Tahiti, New Zealand and Fiji for ten weeks a few months after meeting on Valentine’s Day in 1982.

In 1986, the couple traveled around North America in a small camper.  They explored Alaska and Canada for nine months where they learned about the sport of mountain biking.

In 1993, and 1994, they went around the world with their mountain bikes and video production gear to produce multiple-award-winning documentary “Full Cycle:  A World Odyssey,” an endless summer on mountain bikes.

This is a couple who love to travel, meet new people, experience new adventures, enjoy unique foods, beers and wines, and share their photographs and adventures.  So take a little adventure yourself at World Traveler Reviews and check out what the world has to offer.
