*Good news!! You can now stalk me wherever I go! 😀 My father made a map, which is updated almost daily and shows cities/villages I have been to. Link will be down below! My blog is a few weeks behind, sorry for that.* This time it was me, who was waving off the crazy cyclist. … More An abdrupt ending to the cycling.
Kicked awake by Stanislaw – with my permission – who was heading to work, I slowly began packing my stuff. A night of little sleep did not help a lot, but had to get busy cycling. Once our simplistic bikes had some air pumped into the tires and the panniers were again full with food, … More Bromance or ‘Bro-m-end’?
Stomaches full, tents cleared, bags and bikes packed, goodbyes were said and we managed to resist kidnapping their little puppy; we were ready for departure. However, not before the man had shoved our hands full with cans of warthog meat. He had caught and canned it himself. With a smile, we left the house and … More Polish Hospitality
Poland thinks it is funny to begin building roads to then only a little later stop again. Seriously, a few meters of road and it ends. Not into a dirt road, a field or anything that could specify as a road, it just stops. There is no logical reason for these roads, all they do … More The land of broken and unfinished roads
Time had once again come to get back on the road and brave all the crazy drivers, who have probably gotten their license together with a cereal box.

Arriving in Prague, Maarten and I had not yet been able to arrange a place to stay, due to little luck on CouchSurfing and no need to spend half our budget on accommodation. This meant we had to go in old style; Knock and ask. As always, it gave results and that at the first … More From small villages to loud and crowded in Prague
On our first few days in the Czech Republic, we got to know the country in various ways. Cycling over the border, we were welcomed by old, some abandoned, houses, sketchy people, meth seeking junkies, signs forbidding prostitution and roads filled with potholes and dozens of memorials and roadkill on the side. Lovely… Weirdly though, … More Mixed feelings about the Czech Republic
Eastern was on the agenda and the travelling duo was excited to do something special, yet, we were told that there was nothing in a 40km radium. It was already late in the afternoon and my bad knee, which until the mountains I never had trouble with when cycling, had been acting up again, so … More Our last days in Germany
It was on the 8th day, 19th March, that we reached our milestone of 500 kilometres, as we were on our way into town to enjoy a beer after a long week of cycling. Luck was on our side that day, which already prove so quickly after we had left the farmer’s family near Horn. … More The mountainous menace
Our first week There we went, off to see the world, as Maarten’s, my companion, family waved us goodbye. I had spent the night there, so that we could depart early in the morning. Nonetheless, it had been a busy morning on the 12th of March, our first day, and Maarten had yet to pack … More The start of our cycling trip
