Puntland: to the lighthouse on the tip of the Horn of Africa - James Willcox

And then there were three: tandem touring with an infant in Arctic Norway - Anne Pinney

Anne cycled the northern coastline of Norway with her husband, fellow tandem cyclist David, and their 10 month old son. Hear about her journey; the white sandy beaches of the Vesterålen and Lofoten Islands, the beauty of mountains and fjords, and the pain of a 1,400km ride in the Arctic... with a cot, high chair and nappies!
