Hi, i’m Caroline (or Caz – or Smazwaz and Granny Smaz to a special few) and I am currently on an adventure riding my Triumph Tiger 800 around the world.
In August 2017 I went motorcycle camping in Wales for one night with my ‘best bike buddy’ and enjoyed it so much I decided I was going to give up my job and ride around the world. I did, and I am ! Ok, there was a bit more to it than that but you will have to wait to see if I write a book so you can find out the whole story, or ask me.
I bought my first bike after doing my CBT in 2013 and have been hooked ever since. Even what I now refer to as ‘The Accident’ in 2015 didn’t put me off for long. The process of grieving the loss of my husband in said accident, getting my confidence back on the bike, being supported by my fantastic friends and family, and meeting some amazing people put me onto the path I am on now – riding around the world on a Triumph Tiger 800, seeing amazing places and meeting more incredible people.
In 2018 I rode from the UK, on the north Silk Road through Central Asia, to South East Asia. Then flew myself and Boo the Tiger to Australia where I spent the first quarter of 2019. I am now in North America.
Follow me on Facebook or Instagram if you are interested in how I get on, or wait for the summaries of each stage when I post them on here.
