Cycling around the World

I’m currently in the process of cycling boldly into the unknown for no apparent reason. If you’re interested in the places I go and people I meet please check out this site which I’ll be updating when I can. Here I will be telling you the tales of roads less traveled, of rivers wild, forests thick and mountains high, of lands far and cities grand, etc. etc.

If you want to boost my morale there’s 4 things you can do:

  • SOS Children’s Villages is trying to help children without parental care and families in difficult living conditions, making sure that children are able to grow up in a loving family in all areas of the world. I believe that every child needs a safe and loving home to develop to their full potential. I have been sponsoring SOS Children’s Villages over the last years and I encourage you to do the same! Please click here!
  • By week 2 I’ll be tired of my own company, so join me on the road for some time! Click here to discuss the options!
  • Send me encouraging emails/comments like how much you enjoy sitting in the office looking at spreadsheets!
  • I like taking fancy pictures. I have no pretensions to the quality but you can buy various products like postcards and posters of my attempts to inspire people to get out of the door and experience the beauty of this amazing world. Please click here!
