Amazing, already three weeks on tour! Crazy, time’s flying! In this blog post we sum up the newest happenings for you. An overview about changes on our website and general impressions are guaranteed.
Interactive travel map
Our interactive map is ready and we will now continously expand it while traveling. Therefore you can follow us on our journey step by step. In the map you can see where we stayed over night, which nature perls we found, our picnic places, impressive buildings, interesting encounters and many more. You can zoom in and out and click on the markers. A short text, a picture and a link await you. Enjoy the geography lecture 😉 Find here our map.
Blog posts and interviews
Find here the last blog post about the first days in Germany. In future we will show you our stops via the travel map. Therefore you have the possibility to read about our progress in shorter intervals. However, blog posts about nature places and sustainable travel as well as interviews with nature conservationists and other interesting people will be published in future. Just today we uploaded the first interview (only in German). Erika Dorn from the National Park Donau-Auen told us about her work.
We had a great time with Erika Dorn, communication expert at the National Park Donau-Auen, Austria
3000 kilometers – 3000 Euros
As you probably already read the goal of our world tour is to show people the great natural places on our earth. On our first stage from Germany to Montenegro we are promoting the campaigns of the nature conservation foundation EuroNatur. It would be amazing to fundraise 3000 Euros – 1 Euro per cycled kilometer!
In the spotlight
We do not want to hide from you, that we were present in two local newspapers in Germany. Find the articles in the Südkurier and in the Bersenbrücker Kreisblatt (sadly only in German)l
Steffen’s retrospect of the first 3 weeks along the Danube
In the last 3 weeks we always followed the Danube on its left or right shore. Steffen has these impressions on his mind when looking back:
» Cycling on the Danube cycle path was sometimes boring, sometimes really beautiful – especially off the beaten track we had more adventures. You see, this stage was very diversified. Physically I was not in the best shape as my knees were hurting way too often. I hope that it will get better over time.
A compensation is the number on our speedo: 1200 km! This is a great achievement for us as we are rookies… Surprisingly, we didn’t have any big accident so far and that the mood is still very good!
All in all the world trip was so far very exciting and impressive. We met so many different people and got to know them, their experiences and great hospitality. It is astonishing how fast we took them to our hearts. We feel as if we visit our family members or good friends!
I have a feeling that we made the right decision with this journey.«
Now we wrote enough about us – have fun checking out our map, reading the (German) articles, watching the (German) interviews and especially with donating!
