Long-distance cycling touring is what I am doing. Mostly, I have been doing it on my own.
The solitary feeling of cycling with no one else through the endless roads has its perks. I am the most comfortable being alone, but even then it can from time to time feel incredibly lonely. So I have now trie
My legs feel like burning jelly, the salvia in my mouth has turned into some thick metallic tasting goo. I try not to look up from the sheer fear of seeing how far there's left or even worse, not being able to see it. I try to ignore the cars that seem to get impatient behind me, giving them as mu
When it comes to roaming the steem blockchain I am personally using three platforms: Partiko for my phone, Steempeak for anything else and then for a very specific itch I am having, I go to travelfeed.

"Hey if you happen to come by Mongolia one day, write us on whatsapp"
"You should visit these ancient marble theaters in Greece, I love by so just give me a call"

Love from strangers, a strange term for someone like me. Especially when I have grown up in a place where it is not a norm to invite strangers to your home.
Since I started cycle touring I have felt complete independence, but also vulnerable to the people on my road. At the mercy of what their true
Cycling from Denmark to Portugal is bound to create some reality vs expectations scenarios that doesn't really match all the time.
The clear picture of you enjoying a tasty meal while watching the sunset, sharing a glass of some local wine you brought earlier. Can easily be replaced with the cruel r
If I had to pick one thing that I hate the most in Europe(and the rest of the modern world for that matter) would be that everytime I would like to camp by a lake, in a forrest or a coast it is almost certainly by law illegal.
