Do they blink? [Roadtrip around Norway #1]

I am staring at my opponent, focusing on every tiny move he makes and trying not to move myself. He looks straight at me with his perfectly round eyes and the bright orange iris. ‘Don’t blink or you will miss it’, I tell myself.

The Spreewald - a beautiful biosphere reserve in Brandenburg about 1 hour south-east of Berlin. Perfect for kayaking, perfect for camping.

"How fast can I cycle from Passau to Vienna?" This question followed me around for the last two years since I did the beautiful cycling trip with my ex-partner in a nice 4 days ride. Being on my bucket list since then I thought I'd try it one day. Planned. Trained. Ready to go. As … Continue reading A spontaneous 336km bike trip [Passau to Vienna, 6.8.-8.8.2018]
