About Us

Hi and thanks for visiting us!

We (Françoise (just 40) and Glenn (44)) quit our jobs earlier this year (2012) to travel and dream up some business plans for when we get back.

My home is between Barcelona and Tivissa in Catalonia, Spain, while Glenn’s is in San Angelo, Texas, but we’ve been together for 5 years and somehow we make it work.

This August, we’ve been hiding out in a great little place off South Congress in Austin, TX, we’ve buried a plan to horse ride across Texas and hatched a plan of hiking the 800+ mile Arizona Trail from Sep-Dec 2012, which is the reason why we’ve been running and biking in 40+C (100+F), very humid weather most days, all August; we’re trying to pretend we’re actually fit.

If we survive the mountain lions, jaguars, killer bees and Mexican immigrant smugglers which we hope not to encounter along the AZ Trail, we’ll try and eek out our finances to allow for a round-the-world car trip which we’ve been talking about doing for a LOT longer than it will actually take to complete.

We hope you’ll join us Up, Down ‘n All Around via this blog (which we don’t really know how to use, but hopefully we’ll get better at it :-?).
