Momentum

Hi!

This day is special. Not just because its April fool’s day (an attribute we know all too well), but because this is the first time the two of us were able to sit down to one table at the same time. This allows us to see the same thing and at the same time, too. This is what bonds us for quiet a while. So the worthile work has started. Though in the past months, seperately we have put a lot of energy into organizing our common journy, the two streams have met, and forming a river, it surges forward with elemental energy. The result of this is that the first content has reached our blog and we put a little time into fine tuning its shape too. With this, we have launched something that will give you lots of news and joy for about the next two years.

It is no coincidence we named our news flow Momentum, because from now on, we will hit the pedals. In exactly two months from now, we are going to be actually on our way. Boredom will have no chance to hit us until then either, cause we still have plenty to take care of before the start. During this time you can join us and follow how we prepare for the most exciting part of our lives: around the world on a bike. Sponsors, supporters, aka. Backwind, it wouldn’t hurt if you start blowing…

Life is good.

Already on our way

Today we had a conversation on the phone with Mr. Szalag, who shared with me an important and interesting thought: Though we are still preparing, we are already on our way.

This simple preposition blows away any doubt or stress. It can take me to an exciting state, which has the nice side effect of this falling into place at break neck speed.

So now I decide that I am already on the journey 🙂 Today will be the final day of planning the around world trip (that I personally cannot wait to start) cause I just have to write in a few dozen countries into the final plan. Then it is time to celebrate 🙂 Since its always great to celebrate.

Errands

It seems we have plenty of errands to run before we launch. We just got a letter from Árpi and his wife who are on the road on their recumbent for almost 4 now. We plan a similar route, so from Hungary, we will attack to the East, and when time comes, we shall return from the West.

According to the letter, we have to shift up a gear so we can get the necessary visas and vaccines. We plan to launch at the end of May, every errand will have to get done perfectly till then.
