After some well spent family time in Nijmegen it was time to head out again and this time just the two of us. Our first nights in Germany we scored some good camping spots in the forest which was more of a learning moment to get used to assembling the tent and cooking on a multi-fuel stove.
The days following we started gaining more altitude and start realizing how much we are actually carrying. Thoughts pass by but it’s also a need to get used to the new way we choose to live.
Easily we attract the attention of people by the way we travel. Mostly encouraging reactions when we tell our plan and some delusory. It is indeed a long way before we reach our goal, therefore we hope to see, absorb and experience more of our surroundings.
The people who are close to us know we have love for a few main things and those are coffee, music and cycling. We try to enjoy those as much as possible.
The morning are still cold but presents beautiful sceneries and sometimes funny stuff like a snail in your shoe. They crawl everywhere if you dont put your stuff inside. there’s also a downside with travelling by bike as one of us experienced a broken brake cable in a downhill. Very scary moment, but there was no panic and we were able to fix it.
