Another trip. The dream is quite long in my head - To reach the Pacific Ocean from home.
One year before the start, it was clear to me - I am going to do it: Cycle from Wiesbaden in Germany direction east till only the
water separates me from the next continent. And so, I did it:
At the 26th of March 2008, I rode the River Main to Bayreuth,
pushed the bike into Czech Republic, Poland and Belarus, followed by Russia. Here stamina was
the thing I needed. Then the mighty lake Baikal! Further through Mongolia to China - Beijing.
In September 2008 after reaching Beijing, I knew, I could not just fly home.
I made it to the Pacific Ocean my means of own muscle power. I want to drive home like that, just not back home...
So, I continued my journey crossing the USA from Los Angeles, California to St. Augustine, Florida, from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean.
Then, only a little bit of Europe was left: From the Brittany in France though Luxembourg, Belgium back home to Wiesbaden, Germany.
At the 13th of December 2008, after 17.432 km, I pulled my bike on the stand in front of the same house, I left 263 days before.
Be invited to accompany me a little bit on the following pages...
