We were searching for a place for our tent and these days the weather is unpredictable, so we have been trying to find shelter in barns or sheds by farmers. This day we were in the Swabian Alps near the town of Scheer. We rode up the road to a farm. After asking around, a kind old man [...]

Wow, what to say about the first days on the bicycle. First and foremost we have already been amazed by the hospitality on the way. Also we really appreciate the small things while cycling.

This is a question that reoccurs in thoughts and conversations, 'why?' is a very essential question to ask yourself in many situations. This is also true for me in this situation, and for both me and Susanne as we talk a lot about our decision of quitting our jobs and leaving “normal” western society to go travelling on [...]

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
