In the last couple of years I had been dreaming of seeing the world and made it one of my top priorities.
Now I´m finally getting ready for my Big One. The adventure of a lifetime.
On the 8th of March 2019 I´m gonna set off for a round the world bicycle trip.
The plan is to start cycling east after leaving Europe, going through Central Asia to Southeast Asia and then on to Australia and New Zealand.
You can already see a map of the first leg to Greece here, where I will update the further stages and also put up the actual route once I´m on the road.
Are you nervous? Aren´t you scared?
Those are questions I have to answer almost every day to family and friends.
Yes, I am nervous. And excited, anxious, happy and downright scared. All at the same time – a roller-coaster of emotions.
Sometimes I´m questioning my sanity.
Sometimes I´d ask myself if this is total madness. If I can cope with what´s to come. If I can tackle the loneliness and embrace being alone out there.
I know that it won´t be all just fun and games, but that´s what I signed up for. For the unknown.
But before that it´s one more month of securities.
One month left of knowing, where I´d sleep that night.
One month of having a hot shower every day.
One month of an everyday opportunity to meet friends and family.
One month of not having to make finding water, food and a camping spot/shelter my first priorities.
One month left to gather everything I need for such an adventure.
One month left to prepare both physically and mentally.
One month until I´m starting my Big One.
