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.
