Soon finishing the crossing of the big country. Australia is a biggest country on my trip with big distances to get anywhere but it is a great country with many different faces. Last year I did cycling in the world and travelling was a way of living for me. It is biggest thing that travelling in long term should bring to anyone. You are not just going places for a while and see. You change for a while lifestyle that brings a lot of knowledge and another views on the life and the world.

At the moment I am cycling in Australia. Part of the trip are days with cycling in the rain, in burning heat, with the headwind and in my back. Sometimes I am starving, I sated. It’s all extreme. I am roaming with my bicycle around the world for 10 months and also using sometimes other means of transport. Statistics are my favorite ones. I spent more than 860 hours in the saddle of bicycle, and I did more than 15 000 km. Cycled or traveled distance is not very important. For those who are not using a bicycle a lot it is maybe unimaginable. But this journey is not about a distance cycled, but it is a part of the trip. I have to keep in mind that long way to the end of this incredible journey and adventure. I still have to plan it as best as I can to avoid problems on the road. More photos and information from my trip you can find here: https://www.facebook.com/WorldBikeTravel/photos_stream. Continue reading
