I'm Amaya

It may sound crazy, but I’m on a quest to cycle every country on the planet. Seriously. I want to be the first woman to ride through every single country.  I’ve also got an almost unhealthy obsession with podcasts. And I love dogs.

Cycling the world
since 2006

I’ve biked through 118 countries.  Yes 118. That wasn’t a typo. And ridden over 200,000 kilometers. That’s a lot of saddle sores. I’ve got a weakness for chocolate chip cookies. That’s why I need to keep pedaling. It’s all about putting off middle aged spread.

If I'm not cycling, I'm probably hanging out with a dog.

You can find me scooping poop and walking pooches at the local pet shelter in Portugal. Eric (my hubby) and I also foster dogs. When we need a break from the road, we sometimes pet sit.


What makes me happy

let's not complicate this

The simple life suits me best.  If I don’t have time to bake cookies and walk the dog, something’s got to change.


Everybody wants to chronicle their adventures. Head on over to  Worldbiking.info for travel tales and pics from our round the world cycle tour.


Apparently doing something creative makes people happier. That’s what the research says. Since I can’t draw (art was my worst subject at school) I decided to try my hand at taking photos.


Dogs are cool. And they make people  smile. I love  volunteering at the shelter and cuddling with my foster dog Riley. (He’s very cute. And He needs a loving forever family. Get in touch if you want to adopt the BEST dog ever.)
