About Us

This website was originally set up to cover Lindsay’s bike travels. Back then, it was called northlandboy.com. But all things come to and end, and Lindsay got married, to Anna. So now it’s northlandboyandhisgirl.com. All the earlier content is still there, but expect to see future posts about things that both of us are doing. Hopefully there will be another long bike trip coming up soon, but it will involve both of us.

We’re currently living in San Francisco, so the next bike trip may well be trans-America. Fingers crossed.

Anna’s Background

Anna was enjoying the life of a salesperson, until she realised that it was all crap, and meaningless. She gave it away, and went to university to become one of those annoying mature students. This is proving to be much more to her liking. Now she’s working as a counsellor.

Lindsay’s Background

Lindsay grew up in Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand, before moving to Auckland to study and work. In 2005 he moved to Scotland, to work and travel. After good times in Edinburgh and Dundee, he hit the road, travelling around the Middle East. Somewhere along the line biking seemed like a good idea. So he went back to London, worked for six months, then in early 2007, set off on a bike across Europe, Asia – via Iran and the Stans to China, then down to Singapore, and finally down the middle of Australia, reaching home in mid-2008.

He settled in New Zealand for 18 months, then got back on the bike for Chile and Argentina, and back up to England, to complete his first lap of the world. He is now working as a Product Manager for Brocade, in San Francisco . You can read more about Lindsay’s professional experience at lkhill.com. That site is mainly technical writing, covering the sometimes exciting, often dull world of network management consulting. Email him at lindsay.k.hill@gmail.com.
