Haven't had any time to update the site about last year's adventure, but I'm working on it.
Some basic info is up now.
90 days in Argentina was not long enough. We climbed
quite a lot of peaks, but I felt like staying much longer and climb a plenty
of more mountains.
A list of the peaks I climbed and some very basic info posted.
|I started in 1994 with a trip to the Karakorams in Pakistan
and since then either been on the bike or dreaming about being so. My journeys have
taken me to about 50 countries and a distance of approximately 82
This site will give you a little insight about my life on the road and I hope there is something for everyone here, regardless of if you're a hard-core world tourer or an armchair traveler.
|The three main reasons why I love this kind of life are:
The curiosity for the unknown.
The wonderful scenery this diverse planet has to offer.
The challenge of the cycling itself.
Habitual boredom and "every-day-is-the-same-life" is another very good reason...
Much more mountaineering!
Mt Kenya is the first target and early next year I'll head for South America. My bike will be loaded with mountaineering gear and it'll probably be a lot of zigzagging over Los Andes. Many nice peaks there...
|The site is about my five main bike trips. The travel
pages are photo based and does not necessarily contain the photographically best
photos, it's the ones which tells the stories about "life out there".
Portrait, nature and some other photos will end up on the photo pages later on.
|From the first page on this site, you can easily see that I
love mountainous areas. All my life I have also been interested in statistics and
therefore I started to make graphs of the hillier parts of the routes I have cycled.
Route info with graphs and diagrams.
|Gear is, from my point of
view, a pretty boring chapter. What it all comes down to in the end is your legs,
determination and the ability to improvise.
