  • Jun 6, 2014 at 1:00PM updated Jun 9, 2014 at 8:47AM

On a sunny March day in Snoqualmie, Doug and Kristin Walsh had no problem daydreaming about going on a long bike ride.

On the surface, their goal is to ride their bicycles basically around the world, to discover amazing cultures, sample exotic foods, and see places they’ve only read about, in a trip they estimate will take about three years.
