I’ve got the date!
I’m leaving on my bike the 20th of March. And that’s all about I’ve planned.
Personally I think that is a whole lot for a un-organized, kindda lazy, messy and slightly chaotic person like myself…
Only reason this is the date is because I can’t leave before the 18th. The day I’m gonna see Dolly Parton live in concert
Anyway, the planning…
Doesn’t it involve a whole lot of organization…?
Haven’t you got sponsors…?
Are you a good swimmer…?
The first questions I get when I tell people I’m about to cycle to Australia.
I really don’t think you can do a lot of planning for a journey like this.. or well, some people probably can but I’m not one of them.
I’ve never really ‘planned’ any trip ever before and it always worked out, so I don’t see the point in starting now.
Of course there’s a couple of important things. I’ve started getting injections against scary diseases and I’ve looked online to get info about visas and stuff. My conclusion is that I might as well figure that out on the way.
So why I go to Australia..? I’d say; Why not?… because I can.
I might never get to Australia. That’s fine with me too. It’s not the destination I’m looking forward to. It’s being on the road again. I miss the freedom and euphoric feeling I get on my bike. Back to basics. All you need to ‘worry’ about is where will I sleep? and what will I eat… Surviving on as little as possible and hopefully make some nice pictures while I’m at it.
The not having sponsors or doing this for charity thing is mainly because I can’t be bothered going around asking people for stuff … And on the other hand I like to do things myself. But I obviously wouldn’t try to stop you if, all of the sudden, you feel very charitable and want to give some cash to a charity of your choice…
my bank account nr is 393244334… can’t blame me for trying ;-)
I’m not a great swimmer. Lucky for me some very handy people have discovered you can cross water in a few different ways… A boat would be my preference, but I’ll figure it out when I need to.
If you like to know how I’ll get on just keep an eye on this site. Thanks for stopping by!
