Two On Four Wheels: A Tragic Loss

In memory of Mary and Peter, Tom Waugh put together this short tribute to the lovely and inspiring couple. 

The news of their tragic deaths came to me through a Facebook post from one of the kind people we encountered in Iran.

It seems this global web of adventure travellers and local hosts is building into a wonderful avenue to share a little piece of each others lives, and to feel some connection to people you never really knew.

While the news last week was extremely saddening, Mary and Peter shared a story of amazing adventure, warming encounters with local villages and the joy they experienced together.

I was looking for inspiration recently for our World By Cycle film and came across their Cycling Central Asia video with some funny moments – cow in back seat of car – scary moments – gun fire in Tajikistan, and plenty of cycling footage and local encounters. Their connection to what they were doing really comes through in the video.
