I can’t remember a time I didn’t want to ‘go on a adventure’
As a four-year old I packed a candle and some cheese in a bag and told mum I was away, she never thought I’d leave the street until a stranger rang, she’d found me 5 km down the main road with my feet in the pond feeding the fish.
She gave me an ice cream.
My first experience with the unsuspected kindness of strangers. But definitely not the last
Many small adventures followed.
I always wanted to see what’s around the corner,
I hiked to Luxembourg when I was in High school and rode my (motor)bike around the country at every opportunity.
After some failed attempts to study I went ‘on a holiday’
and never came back…
After meeting people in different places, I realized you don’t necessarily have to study, work, have babies, die.
There is a whole big beautiful world out there and I want to be part of it!
I made my way around Europe hitchhiking before I picked up a bike in ’03 and cycled to Morocco.
I loved it!
I’ve never been a ‘sporty’ person.
Although I do like a physical challenge, I see my bike more as transport.
It’s for me the best way to travel, not only do I get to see places at a comfortable pace, I am completely free to decide where and when I want to go.
A great side-effect is that it makes you feel fit and healthy. And it’s very affordable…
So after exploring all corners of Europe by either foot, bike or thumb I made up my mind;
I’d cycle as far as I possibly could.
Now, years later, I have actually cycled to Australia and still can’t get enough.
Enormous luck is with me, since just after my trusty old bike collapsed I have been offered a brand new one!
I will keep going on my Multicycle.
Stay tuned for more adventures!
