8th till 14th of September 2019. Dynamics. Is the dynamic of a group different to only travelling with your partner? What is defined by a group? When do you say dynamics are different? I always have dreaded biking together with others or staying in one bedroom with more people. Had enough with taking care of […]Read more
Week 96. Cafayata to Pituil. Biking in Argentinia.
18th till 24th of August 2019. Long and lonely road. Gazing in a campfire or biking along endless roads brings your mind in the nothing box. Following Route National 40, one of the longest roads in the world, competing with the Trans Canada Highway, Route 66 in the USA and Stuart Highway in Australia. It […]Read more
Week 95. Tilcara to Cafayate. Biking in Argentinia.
Prayer flags. Red flags, in all sizes, blowing in the wind. Drawing attention from afar to little, neglected or big, beautiful decorated shrines. Often with an area to sit, relax or even BBQ.

Week 86. San Francisco to Santa Maria. Biking in Peru.
9th till 15th of June 2019. Expectations. Do you also still presume how a town will look or how food will taste? We love to be surprised and we don’t mind to sleep at an other location almost every night, in our tent or between walls, but what me still makes me wonder is why […]Read more
Week 85. Huancayo to San Francisco. Biking in Peru.
2nd till 8th of June 2019. Flying high again.

They even have a name for it: the […]Read more
Week 84. Huanuco to Huancayo. Biking in Peru.
26th of May till 1st of June 2019. Earthquake. The experience of being shaken out of your bed at 2:40 is something not to be repeated. To realize in the middle of your REM sleep that the movement of your bed is not due to too much alcohol (as we only had two glasses of […]Read more
